Adam is hitting all of his usual points about Russia and the soviet union, the scariest people on the planet and yet the Kremlin looks like a fucking Amusement park, something out of Disneyland, Adam wants to know if that is insane overcompensation, why look like a fairy tale or Disneyland when you’re the most evil motherfuckers on the planet.


Someone in the crowd suggests it’s a “Rosie O’Donnell situation” and Adam wants to know if he’s the first person to ever have that thought, BB says on this stage, what.


What Can’t Adam Complain About

John busts out his Carolla impression, still not really capturing Adam, Darrell Hammond was right in 1998, it can’t be done.

John is very funny though, interesting point about trying to repeat the comedy and wisdom of Adam, Adam says his own ideas falls flat when he tries.


1st WCACA Carrot Cake, Adam says he loves Carrot Cake but we make it the worst thing for you, calorically, so you might as well just have the rich traditional dessert that doesn’t have a “healthy” element.

Adam is talking about the products of bygone eras that are no longer made and wants to know why softcore porn still insists upon itself and who the consumers are, John busts out more of his impression.


Adam is considering a class action lawsuit for labeling of porn that brags about large breasts or is labeled with bust sizes that then don’t appear in the movie.

Adam says don’t tweet him about far away polish restaurants, BB mentions the places almost close enough to visit.

Adam wraps up the bit.


Adam explains the premise of the Gina Grad proposal, they poll the audience on proposals and Adam jokes about the dude who attended 3 proms.

Adam knew the guy in the crowd was that guy, he confirms it, and he went to 3 proms, holy shit, Adam just predicted how many proms a dude went to, a stranger.

Adam is quizzing this guy about his time in the military and Adam talks about the society we’ve crafted where murders aren’t hated as much as the dentist who killed Cecil the Lion.


Adam talks about the pariah totem pole of life, smokers are worse than men who abandon their kids, Adam says we’re as fucking dumb as a society.
