Actress and friend Sarah Silverman is on to promote her new book, The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee. Be sure to visit our sponsors at audible.com, and you can purchase of the copy of the audiobook, as read by the author herself. Both Sarah and Adam grew up as bed wetters, and they share their humiliating stories of having to deal with the shame. Adam is reminded of all the shame he felt as a child. When he broke his friend’s cheapo badminton equipment, he was too intimidated by the scary dad to say anything. Similarly, he recalls always under-ordering when someone would take him out for fast food. He and Sarah agree that the kids who were raised by intimidating parents have grown up to raise their kids to be to be pussies. Inevitably those children will grow up and raise their kids to be intimidating and the whole cycle starts over again. They jump back into more bedwetting stories, and Sarah explains how her parents would walk her in the middle of the night and even splash water on her face to wake her up. It reminds Adam of peeing in the sink, and more specifically of the time that Bobcat Goldthwait approached him on a commercial set and told him he named his cat Adam Carolla because he’s a sink peer as well. Adam talks about his upcoming book, and wants to know what the recording process was like. Sarah says it’s less painful than you’d think, but still took 5 sessions of 4 hours each. She asks Adam if he thinks he’ll be reading his own book the way that she did, and he says he’d probably have to, otherwise the reader will fuck up all his jokes. Sarah has a brilliant idea: Have Patrick Stewart read for you! Sarah starts talking about how grown women behave badly on reality TV. Adam says that at least when you see two guys fighting in the octagon, they hug each other at the end of the match. Sarah says there is ‘women on women crime,’ and that they don’t help each other out, which is really weird. Adam points out that reality TV programming is based on envy or disgust. ‘All TV is, is really, ‘Don’t you wanna be this?’ or ‘Aren’t you glad you’re not that?’’ And speaking of television, Sarah Silverman’s show was recently cancelled. She’s fine with it, they’re ready to move on, and Adam points out ‘Part of the great thing about our job is getting to do something new all the time.’ The two commiserate over TV advertising departments, and Adam points out a specific example of an ad campaign for The Jimmy Kimmel show that everyone EXCEPT Jimmy got to approve. They take a listener call, who asks them what they think of therapists. Sarah claims to have found a great therapist, and says that she likes him because he loves what he does, and he’s interested in people and relationships. She offers some of the better advice she’s heard, which is to not stress about future things that haven’t happened yet. Sarah says, ‘I’m paraphrasing something Jesus said, but if you don’t deal with your shit, it’s gonna come out in fucked up ways.’ Adam’s therapy theory: even if you have a mediocre therapist, just the fact that you’re going is a good thing. Grab a copy of Sarah’s book at any bookstore, or off amazon.com. Or better yet, visit our sponsors at audible.com and have her read it to you!
