Show Page

Adam opens the show with a pre-recorded intro done earlier in the day before they flew out to Phoenix, Adam does some live reads and gets the business out of the way.

For New Listeners, Teresa Strasser was the 2nd Fulltime “Newsgirl” on the KLSX Adam Carolla Show, she tried out for the job after the first woman didn’t work out, and Teresa won everyone’s hearts and performed the best which landed her the gig.

The 2006 KLSX show was akin to the Howard Stern radio format, there are far too many legendary bits, moments and “incidents” to list, she quickly shifted the role from “Newsgirl” to cohost in 2007 when they were forced to deal with Danny Bonaduce’s hiring.


The 2008/09 KLSX ACS is the format that this podcast emulates/evolved from, Teresa even came along for the podcast whenever she was needed while pregnant and working other gigs, her and Bryan were featured every Tuesday and then in 2010 when the show morphed into the ACS format fulltime she was a regular.

Gina and Teresa were good pals while at KLSX, this is their first time on stage together, very interesting!


Adam opens the show with Teresa Strasser on stage, one of our dearest and oldest friends who Adam says is “just getting better with age” and immediately goes into a hypothetical question about a douchebag he hates.

Adam talks about getting dropped off at the airport by Caelan and how he told them about how it’s illegal to smoke in the city of Los Angeles, Adam has a funny “Matt Damon” riff.

Adam is talking about the person who does the fake cough when they see you smoking on the street, fuck that person.


Adam hates that guy, Teresa is right in the mix and her delightful laugh is already getting peppered in.

Adam jokes about Brock Lesner and Chuck Liddell walking down the street fake coughing, Adam brings up the “shut the fuck up pussy” reply he gave to a guy outside a CBS radio station in 1999.

Teresa says Adam is now advocating people call everyone a pussy, BB, T and Gina all weigh in and get Adam riffing on “Pussy Elbow” which Gina seems to coin and then Teresa has a funny one liner in reply which tips her MLB knowledge.


Adam is going over Teresa’s move to Arizona and her quickly growing young boys, Adam asks her about searching for schools.

Teresa has a killer “melanoma” one liner and BB marvels at her not losing a step, agreed!

Teresa is right in the mix with Adam, he’s talking about the roundtable meeting his wife was forced to attend about his son’s possible “wood chipper” future, Teresa is really matching Adam’s energy and flow and making this even funnier, citing young Sonny and his resemblance to a Buttplug.


Adam talks about his lack of an education along with his wife’s short time with a junior College, Teresa talks about her google news alert, asking if Adam has been moving as much as it seems.

Adam talks about his kids Cotillion and she tells Adam this is the whitest thing he’s ever done in his life, holy shit that’s great.

Adam talks about “the fork you stab your sister” while mocking his families lack of knowledge of salad forks, Adam is talking about kids at the Cotillion and his son’s inability to tie his own necktie knot.


Adam is talking about his wife’s late night massage, unaware Adam was originally schedule to get one with her but she cancelled it last minute as revealed on For Crying Out Loud.

Adam was unaware of the love between T and Gina, Teresa says Gina is her favorite of the “News Jews” and Adam is bringing up the cardboard vagina for his hotel room key, sleeve if you must.

Adam is mocking the check in/check out times for hotels and how they keep creeping in opposite directions.


Teresa brings up ‘Road Hard’ and the pain of the hotel key card, Adam is talking about a guy told him about using his room key to “activate” the power to the room while staying in fancy places.

Adam thanks Jalen, the only human being to ever give him the heads up to put his key in the slot.

Adam talks about his trek to NYC and mentions the platter of cheese that was brought to the Mangria event, he tried to get everyone to eat cheese.


Adam realized he had never seen a Japanese woman eat cheese, Adam is now riffing about him and Donald Trump shaking the country like an ‘Etch-a-Sketch’ and Teresa has some practical lactose factoids and Gina brings up the Japanese “Butter Stinker” slur they have for us lovers of dairy/round eyes.

Adam ordered the Japanese woman to eat cheese, Adam jokes about her passing away on Wednesday and the guy who died in front of the tank in Tiananmen Square Square has nothing on this gal.

Teresa brings up her father moving into a Trailer Park called ‘The Riviera’ after citing Adam’s riff about pieces of shit locations with beautiful and misleading names/tittles. BB has a funny one liner, Teresa comments on her dad’s missing teeth and resistance to smiling.

Adam has a killer line that Teresa tops with a one word reply, wow.

Teresa plugs ‘Catch a Contractor’ on Spike.


Teresa forgot about the premise of ‘Ass-kiss Rodeo’ which might have been dead by the time she started on the ACS, though I vaguely remember some crossover.

The bit was where guest would try and kiss Adam’s ass as he bucked and juked around trying to lose them with his crazy opinions and shifting arguments.

Teresa misunderstood the bit and wrote a poem, what!?

She Says she has all kinds of great things to say about him and misses him, she’s greatly missed by all of us in the CarollaVerse too.


Teresa is setting up her ‘Prose vs. Verse’ after Adam jokes about ‘Pros vs. Joes’ and she keeps trying to intro the poem.

She has a great John Hiatt reference and even plugs his books and movies in it, holy shit T is a sweetheart always.

Adam tells T she loves her and compliments her writing, Adam hopes he’s been encouraging to her the entire time he’s known her.
