Adam opens with a conversation about knowing people by their habits. He says that he’s not necessarily smarter than anyone else, he just trusts his instincts that most people don’t change. He and Teresa discuss the option of having a ‘Sane’ stamp on your driver’s license, and Adam talks about women being more instinctual than men. There’s also some talk about Adam’s wife shockingly cleaning the car, and Bald Bryan’s success record at Totally Topical Tivo Trivia.
In the news, a drunk pregnant woman was arrested for stealing money for drugs. They joke about drive thru Mexican food, the glory of taco tracks, and fucked up people having fucked up kids. Adam also talks about his relationship with his own kids for a bit, and how his daughter goes out of her way to be mean, while Sonny is as affectionate as ever. The final two news stories both deal with animals: a dog who saved his owner’s life by biting off his toe, and a Chinese fishmonger who fell into a tank of eels, only to have one swim up his ass.
Adam takes a few listener calls, starting with someone who wants to know what Adam thinks about ESPN Sports Guy Bill Simmons twittering about Adam’s relationship with Jay Leno. Adam speaks for a while about how ‘we live in a time when everyone talks trash about everyone else.’ He relays his experiences working with both Leno and David Letterman, and insists that from his perspective, Jay is a much nicer guy. Another caller demands that Adam recant his statements about chapstick, and the final caller wants advice before setting off to make a documentary. Adam says you should never make something just because you think it will be popular; you should instead make something because you’re passionate about it.
Comedian Lisa Ann Walter enters the studio and recalls auditioning to play Adam’s wife in his TV pilot. We soon find out that both of them used to work at McDonalds, though Adam was never allowed to work past the grill. Lisa teases that the counter was a whole new level of elegance, and says that she holds a record for having served 90 people in one minute.
Lisa is also the executive producer for Dance Your Ass Off, and she would often be around when Adam was on Dancing with the Stars. Adam talks about the nervous pressure of the first dance, and how he embarrassed himself in front of Marisa Jaret Winokur (who later became the host of DYAO). Rumor had it that Marisa was let go for not being heavy, but Lisa says it’s bullshit. She herself identifies with being fat, adding, ‘we all self loathe.’ Now Mel B. (former Spice Girl) is the host, and Lisa says she might go gay for her. Adam agrees, and says he’d go gay for Mel G.
Dance Your Ass Off airs Mondays at 10pm on Oxygen.
