Adam is now sharing the story of August and the mistaken SD card akin to the past “Sonny-Gate” incident, Adam is playing some video of the Portland “booze blimp hangar” much like the Binny’s location I drove Adam to in downtown Chicago.


Adam is further describing Mike’s video, to give a hint of the sheer amount of fans who showed up, BB is even in agreement.

Adam is explaining the straggler effect, the last minute people who show up and still get face time, sometimes more and don’t have to wait in line for more than a minute or two, Adam doesn’t want to recommend this, as it’s what he would do but will also encourage bad turn outs.

Adam is now explaining how they hired a photographer as always encouraged by us fans, yet like this often proves to work out, things went wrong.


Adam is now sharing an anecdote about their driver and the attempt to get to their scheduled locations on time, I feel so badly I wasn’t there to drive them like I did in 2011.

Adam is doing a great one man recreation of the interaction of the misunderstanding between him and the driver, he’s now calling for a hidden camera show featuring just these types of interactions.

Adam has a great “Perfect Strangers” reference while describing their arrival at “Main Brew”, sounds like someone finally did it right, I’ve never had anyone volunteer parking information let alone have it all worked out for us when on the road with Adam, good job!


Gary is now on mic to give his view of the events and conversation with the photographer, Once again it’s Gary as the key witness, although he admits “Sonnygate” was more “good radio” than actual belief in his guilt.

Adam is now mocking key rings, how they meant success to him as kid, like one a janitor wears and now Alison is reading Adam’s mind by bringing up the change belt as another one of these “nifty” things.

They’re now further discussing the chain of events that lead to the missing SD card.


I’m guessing the photographer mistook some random fan or person for Mike August, Adam is predicting they’ll never see it if the driver was the one to find it.

Adam is now sharing his experience in Bellevue, the closes he’s been to my hometown since 2010, He’s sharing the “no signing bottles” corporate policy of “BevMo” and Adam is calling for a crab combing of all the laws and rules in society.

Adam is now sharing why BevMo has this policy to protect their interests, he’s sharing the original “Prank Puppets” name for “Crank Yankers” and the battle with Comedy Central over using it.

Adam is now sharing how the manager of the BevMo, mad with power was prohibiting Adam from even signing his own books at their business.

Adam is sharing the lengths they’ve now had to go to with pre-signed sticker labels and Adam is citing this as another step towards this self-created prison of a society.
