Show Page

Adam is opening the show to a very personal intro mocking his mom’s Halloween alternatives and Adam is comparing the bewilderment of the kids leaving his mom’s door to the guys appearing on “To Catch a Predator”.

Adam is now doing an impromptu version with BB manning the “Elliot Gould” drops, nice correction from Adam to BB about the pronunciation of one of his fiction NFL players.


I am so glad to have played a role in this new bit, Adam, August, Lynch, Dune and Myself driving in Waukegan.

Adam is really going extended with this riff and trying to get Elliot to work into the song.

Over 4min of tryouts and Adam is now pitching an Isaac Hayes tryout, BB is now editing show content on the fly and saying “not today”, odds they ever do it if BB is taking the note?


They are now playing Jo Koy from last week, “Froat On” his lost audition tape for the band, the infamous “Wooster” clip.

Adam is now kind of pitching open try outs for “The Floaters” and getting into his Halloween plans with the kids.

Adam is now saying we’ve outsourced everything, physically to China and India for materials and emotionally in regards to the lost era of homemade costumes and time spend with the kids.


BB has a solid prime shipping one liner in response to Adam’s examples of the memories of the kids of this era, disconnected from their parents.

Alison agrees that it’s a bonding activity and Adam says that not everything that takes time is a waste of time, Bryan plays “The More You Know” drop.

Adam is telling BB about doing the pumpkin carving thing with Sonny and his scout troupe, Adam is saying his pumpkin came out looking like Eric Stoltz as “Rocky Dennis” from the movie “Mask” as if he had Downs’s syndrome and had been hit by a trolley car, comedy gold!


Adam is bringing up the other dads, Mr. Mike is his main example and he’s talking about them all stacked on the stage around the pumpkin event.

Mike was talking about the election and not about pumpkin carving.

Adam is going off on the annual “Pumpkin Chunking” contest, he’s bringing up the trebuchet models and the pneumatic variety, and he’s got a great rocket vs. driven propulsion analogy.

Tales from the Cheap

1st Caller Sara, her mom once made her a “Black Eyed Pea” using mascara and a t shirt.

Adam is now going off on getting a job where you encounter happy people, setting yourself up to see the same person in very different circumstances.

He’s contrasting other jobs of the same pay grade that involve you seeing people on a bad day.


2nd Caller Elizabeth, she’s married into a very Carolla-esque family dynamic with a millionaire version of Chris Carolla.

Great Gremlin one liner from A-Rose.
