Adam is already in complaint mode, talking about shitty songs that never end. The group listens to ‘American Woman,’ and Adam starts talking about the Bay City Rollers. A ‘gargantuan girl’ that he went to high school with was obsessed with the band, and even dressed in the same clothing.

 

Jumping into the news, Teresa lists off the highest paid TV Actors. Oprah and Judge Judy top the list, but Jimmy Kimmel is not too far behind. They start talking about Chelsea Handler’s book sales, which prompts Adam to talk a bit about his own.

 

Author Gregory Levey calls in to talk about his memoir, “Shut Up, I'm Talking: And Other Diplomacy Lessons I Learned in the Israeli Government.” He talks about his entire experience becoming a speechwriter for Israel’s ambassador to the UN. He and Adam also exchange their thoughts on Middle East politics, as well as hot Israeli chicks.

 

Teresa recalls her experiences on El Al airlines, then returns to the list of highest paid TV actors for the second part of the news. From there, she jumps into a wide variety of stories: Mexico’s battle for gay rights, a perverted Disneyland employee, and also Vogue’s 1924 Book of Etiquette.

 

Greg Fitzsimmons steps in, just as Teresa leaves. He and Adam quickly go a jag about the Peanuts gang, and also reggae music in Hawaii. Greg was recently there with his family, and is very bitter about the luau experience.

 

Adam takes a listener call from a guy who wants advice about marrying a woman who makes three times as much money as he does. Adam complains about his wife never making any money, but Greg tells the caller he thinks marrying a rich woman may inspire him to work harder. 

 

Wrapping up the show, Adam reflects a bit more on Jimmy’s presence on the highest paid TV actors list. He and Greg also discuss Adam’s recent Live Show in Tempe, AZ. They both recall experiences dealing with club owners, and also doing stand-up across the country.

Aug 12, 2010

Adam and Teresa jump right into the news. The Flint stabbing suspect is still on the loose, and Adam offers a better motive for the killer. Teresa talks about having to co-sign a loan for her father, and talks about the importance of living within your means. Adam also tells more stories from backstage during his recent run of shows in Tempe.

 

The Ragin Cajun, Stephen Domingue, enters the studio with several samplings of his delicious Cajun food. He’s just spent the last couple months touring the country; cooking and filming for a new reality competition on the Food Network. Teresa teases him about losing to the crepe guy, but Stephen can’t say a word about who won. He talks about coming to the city with nothing, and then trying to bring ‘fais do-do’ to LA (or essentially New Orleans culture).

 

Adam talks further with him about the culture, and also the experience of cooking and eating an alligator. Stephen talks about how the oil spill is affecting his business, and also the impact of other recent events like Hurricane Katrina and the Saints winning the Superbowl. He’ll soon be serving his food at USC football games, and be sure to check him out on the new Food Network series, The Great Food Truck Race.

 

Peter North comes in, and Adam asks him how many porno films he’s been in. Peter says he’s lost count, but something like 1700. He talks about growing up in Canada, moving to LA, and eventually claiming fame for ‘the money shot’. Everyone has a good laugh going through his various porn nicknames. Teresa asks him some very personal but interesting questions about the finer details of filming, and Peter also clears up the controversial gay porn issue. 

 

They talk a bit more about the current state of the porn industry, and Peter flashes back to some of his favorite co-stars, and stories from the set. They also talk about his family’s reactions to his career, and the times Peter was so turned off, he couldn’t go through with the scene. 

 

Back to the news, they talk about a guy caught marinating a live cat. They also talk about American Idol judges, Bill O’Reilly, and Jennifer Anniston, which eventually leads to a conversation about having to do shitty movies to stay relevant. The final news story involves Bachelorette star Ali and her threats of having controversial photos released. It leads Adam into a rant about invasion of privacy, and how we seem to have lost all sense of decency.

Aug 11, 2010

 

Adam opens by talking about his recent run of stand-up shows in Arizona. He was recently talking to Sarah Silverman about how easy it is to do 90-minutes of stand-up when he has a project behind him, but of course, the lightbulb blew out towards the end of one of his shows. The new bulb wasn't working, so Adam was forced to do the show totally by himself. Donny chimes in to confirm that everything went great. Adam also takes a call from Kevin Nealon to discuss his fundraiser for his friend Big Joe, and Adam rants about members of his family always bumming him out.

 

The top news story deals with a Jet Blue flight attendant who got very upset after a dispute about the overhead bins. He told everyone off, grabbed some beers, and leaped out of the emergency exit onto the inflatable raft. Adam says he's now ready for all the bullshit lawsuits that will no doubt follow from people who were on the plane, and exposes his theory that gay men may be too high strung to be airline attendants. Another news story deals with Fantasia Barrino's suicide attempt, and the last deals with parents who lost custody of their children after several domestic incidents, including naming their kid after Adolf Hitler.

 

Today's guest is Adam Curry, host of the podcast “No Agenda”. Adam immediately talks about his European style, and talks to him about being tall and hugging Shaquille O'Neal. Curry also has a series of 2-minute 'Appisodes' which give video demos of popular apps that you may want to download. He talks about working on his own podcast, and how he once famously offered Howard Stern $100 million to move his show away from satellite and onto the internet. They talk about the future of the medium, and Curry offers his theories on Mel Gibson's recent behavior.

 

Talking more about running a podcast, Curry suggests to Adam that he should ask listeners to donate money to the show. Adam defends his decision to go a more commercial route, and Teresa points out that everyone has been very supportive of the show's advertisers. The conversation moves to the television business, and Curry says the Kardashian fad really pisses him off.

 

Speaking of entertainment news, Teresa says that they are about to make a biopic of Peggy Lee. They talk about the casting of Reese Witherspoon, and Adam draws comparisons to Sex and the City, and how the gay population will help that movie make money. Another news story deals with a confrontation where someone wiped a dirty diaper on somebody's car, and it reminds Adam of having to wipe his own kids' asses, even though they're four. The last news story involves a West Virginia man caught in the act with a mannequin, which reminds Curry of briefly attending school in the state. Curry talks further of growing up in Europe, and Adam praises his own 'spidey-sense' for recognizing this European quality earlier.

Aug 10, 2010

Adam just got back from a weekend in Phoenix, and talks about the sold-out six show run. He also talks about killing time during the day, and plugs our new sponsor as Teresa analyses his fashion choices for the day. Adam also talks about having to submit pictures for the publication of his upcoming book, and reminisces about a bunch of them. They read a copy of the first review Adam ever received, and he also talks about his first pet, Lotzi.

 

The news opens with more details about Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller’s broken relationship. They talk about Brooke’s jealousy of Charlie’s father-daughter bond, all based on a shared favorite song. On the opposite side of the father-daughter relationship spectrum, Lawrence Fishburne’s daughter is releasing a porno. The group discusses how much she must hate her father, and also talk about other actresses dealing with their parents’ reaction to their film nudity.

 

Larry Miller comes in, adding more to the Lawrence Fishburne story. He also comments that he knew one of the guys referenced in the same issue of Adam’s LA Weekly review. Adam points out that when you write a book, it ‘forces you to get your [memory] box out.’ Adam and Larry play a few rounds of The Hypothetical Road Trip Game, and both share stories about cars with unusual smells.

 

Today’s guest is Mariana Klaveno, who you may recognize from True Blood. They talk about her Vampire sex scenes on the HBO series, and Adam talks about the awkwardness of filming a scene where he had to make out with his friend’s wife. Mariana also talks about keeping her job as a restaurant hostess long after she landed the series role. Adam recalls stories of seeing her at the restaurant, and gets her to open up and enact ‘hostess revenge’ on some of the celebrities she’s dealt with in the past.

 

Adam dives even further into the past, asking Mariana about her childhood and how she decided to go into the industry. She says it’s something she always wanted to do, and quickly went to college and packed up the car to Hollywood. Jumping back into the news, Teresa reveals a list of actresses who didn’t make to Forbes’ Highest Paid, but should have. Examples include Jane Lynch and Christina Hendricks, which sends Adam into stories about working on The Hammer and proclaiming to women everywhere that guys have always, and will always, love tits and ass.

Aug 9, 2010

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.

The show gets started right off the bat important News: Adam’s book is doing gangbusters on the charts. Adam sincerely thanks everyone for all their support, and gives his fans credit for understanding this ‘new dawn’ in the consumer-buyer relationship. In national news, Proposition 8 was overturned today, and may go as far as the Supreme Court to decide whether gays have a constitutional right to marry. Adam says, like pot, this is something ‘people shouldn’t give a shit about.’ He and Teresa discuss how it can be seen as a violation of civil rights, though Adam also understands how some people can see this as Americans ‘sliding away from the traditional society they want.'

 

In celebrity news, Giselle Bundchen recently had a baby, and everyone is talking about how great she still looks. She’s also in the news for advocating breast-feeding, but Adam is just mostly blown away at how much money she makes for saying so little. After a brief story about a guy in New York who sells grilled cheese sandwiches disguised to look like drugs, Teresa brings up a story of Jessica and Ashley Simpson’s father Joe once again trying to ruin his daughter’s careers. They talk about Ashley’s SNL debacle, Jessica’s reputation for being ‘sexual napalm,’ and Adam fantasizes what that might be like.

 

Before the guest is brought in, the group plays a round of Totally Topical TiVo Trivia. It’s first to five, and a real nailbiter. Then Dan Milano of MTV’s Warren the Ape steps in, and talks about his early experiences working on the series Greg the Bunny. Dan discusses being up obsessed with Muppets as a kid, and growing up to make new characters with friends once he was given a cable access show. They talk about other famous TV puppets, include Kukla, Fran and Ollie and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog. Dan also talks about being at Comic-Con, and working on a script for a remake of Short Circuit.

 

T brings back the news with more revelations from Angelina Jolie’s biography. Apparently she once hired a hitman to kill herself, and Adam re-enacts what he would do if he was given that job. They also discuss the Dugger family, which leads Adam into commentary about having way too many kids and God’s will. Another news story deals with Justin Bieber’s upcoming movie, and also a few other entertainment related stories involve Diablo Cody, LeAnne Rimes, and Mike Tyson.

 

Jeremy London was recently in the news for claiming to be kidnapped and forced to do drugs—conveniently just before having to take a drug test. His family maintained that he was struggling with a drug addiction, and now he’s on Celebrity Rehab. This brings everything back full circle to Dan’s show, Warren the Ape, which also features Dr. Drew. He and Adam joke about working with him, and Dan talks a bit more about the improvised realism of his show. Adam goes on a long jag about various levels of quality in gas stations, and the show ends with a brief commentary of Mel Gibson’s recently released emails.

 

To see Dan’s work, check out Warren the Ape on MTV, Mondays at 1030. Greg the Bunny is also available on DVD.

Aug 4, 2010

Adam opens by discussing his recent conversation with documentarian Ken Burns. Adam says that race came up, and that he thought Ken said something disturbing. Essentially the question was whether or not you'd be willing to switch places with Chris Rock... to which Adam says absolutely, in the drop of a hat. They also talk about which celebrities the valet guy thought were assholes, and Adam asks Teresa a very sensitive question about his daughter's bathroom habits.

 

Jumping into the news, the first story revolves around the Bachelorette finale. They talk about contestant Chris overplaying the 'mom dying card,' but Adam jokes about wishing he could have killed his mom when he was single so he could get laid. They also listen to a breakup clip from the show, which Teresa said she did not see coming. The second part of the news is too depressing, so T asks Adam to chose between the two stories. The one he picks involves six kids drowning while trying to save their friend, and this sends Adam off on a huge rant about parents focusing on unimportant things like tap water and third-hand smoke, instead of more practical things like keeping the pool gate closed.

 

Queen of Mean Lisa Lampanelli enters the studio and wastes no time joking about her fiances big balls. She talks about her upcoming wedding this fall, and how the florist is  overcharging her. She offers her thoughts on The Bachelorette finale, and everyone gets to talking about all kids of trash TV; including The View and Real Housewives of New Jersey. They also talk about wedding dress shopping at Big and Tall stores, and plus size models with small faces.

 

Adam takes a few listener calls to give relationship advice. One caller is concerned with his girlfriend's family who speaks french in front of him, and another is wondering if he should break up with his girlfriend before going off to college. Adam says to both of them not to fight fate, and just understand that you're young and will likely meet many women before you get married. He also spends some time talking about his own break from his wife before they got married, and the benefits of being single and playing the field before settling down. 

 

Teresa reminds Adam and Lisa to talk about the recent Comedy Central roast of David Hasselhoff, which Lisa was a part of. Lisa says that she didn't know what to say about roastermaster Seth MacFarlane, but she did have plenty of material on the man of the hour. Adam also chimes in with his own stories of The Hoff, and asks Lisa about how badly she had to pee during the recording. Lisa says that it was the easiest roast she's ever had to do because she got to open instead of close. Adam and Lisa delve farther into their own experiences of previous roasts, and talk about the importance of prepping your material instead of improvising. Lisa says the jokes were so great this year, they didn't even hurt her feelings; unlike past participant Pam Anderson, who almost cried.

 

Check out insultcomic.com for Lisa's upcoming dates, and watch her on Comedy Central's roast of David Hasselhoff, airing Sunday, August 15th.

Aug 3, 2010

Adam’s really excited to bring Ed Begley Jr. back on the show, and talks about his appearance in Who Killed The Electric Car. Speaking of cars, Adam recently had an incident on the road where he made a ballsy pass at a slow driver hoping to never see them again. He also complains about getting lost in the various Los Angeles canyons, and thanks everyone for keeping his book on the bestseller list.

 

Maxine Waters is in the news for her involvement in an ethics scandal. Adam says he met her once and got brushed off. Adam thinks she’s more focused on reelection than doing something to actually help. He talks about the abuse that comes from having too many kids, and also rants about the abuse of the government tax system. Teresa marvels at Bill Gates ability to be charitable while still remaining outside the system, and also jokes with Adam about Lady Gaga copying Madonna’s career. Bald Bryan makes a Jennifer Hudson joke, and Isaac Hayes steps in to say his part.

 

Larry Miller enters the studio, and is fascinated by Adam’s earlier story about getting stuck behind a slow driver. He says that he’s usually the one driving too slowly—though he always pulls over to let people by. Adam and Larry share their recent encounters with rude drivers and being labeled as rude drivers, and Larry points out that the middle finger is a reflex response. Changing subjects, Adam wants to hold a competition for the cheapest buzz, and reminisces on an uncomfortable experience in an Atlanta Liquor store. Before heading out, Adam and Larry plays the Hypothetical Road Trip game, the game with no wrong answers.

 

Ed Begley Jr. comes by, and Adam asks ‘how’s the crusade going?’ Ed talks excitedly about balancing his three careers, and the pleasure of endorsing a variety of green products. Adam asks him about the realities of owning an electric car, and also the benefits of solar roof panels. Teresa then asks Ed about a recent appearance on Fox News, which Ed says happened on a very bad day. They play the clip and applaud his arguments, but Ed also has time to clear up a few things he said. Adam also jumps in with a rant about government’s involvement with codes.

 

The second part of the news starts with a story about recycling. A couple in Spokane collected over 400,000 cans, then used the money they made to pay for their wedding. They are still collecting cans, donating proceeds to Doctors Without Borders (follow on Twitter @WeddingCans). Teresa also brings up a new beer that is 120proof alcohol, and the latest American Idol judge drama. Wrapping up the show, the group discusses Jimmy Smits, and Ed’s new show on NBC: Outlaw. Ed says, ‘It’s not what you’d expect, that’s all I’ll say.’

Aug 2, 2010

Adam says he spent time with both Jay Leno and Seth MacFarlane this weekend. He went to see Jay because he needed a new piece for his car and Jay has a machine that can easily duplicate parts. Later Adam went over to Seth MacFarlane's house, who is about to host the Comedy Central roast of David Hasselhoff. He wanted advice from Adam, and Adam told him 'be sure to pee' since the unedited performance is much longer. He also stresses the importance of being a man and making your own decisions, and not listening to humorless TV executives.

 

In the news, Chelsea Clinton is officially married. She asked her father Bill to lose 15 pounds before the wedding, but since it cost between $2-5 million, Adam thinks it was a ridiculous request to make. Teresa also brings up that it was an interfaith ceremony, which Adam is adamantly against: 'Flip a fucking coin!'

 

Another news story deals with Obama's appearance on The View. Both Rosie O'Donnell and Sarah Palin had criticisms to make, and Adam is also unsure as to why he did it. He asks 'isn't he supposed to be running the country,' and also thinks that it's beneath him to appear on a TV show like that instead of doing a fireside chat. They listen to a few clips of the show, and everyone thinks it's ridiculous hearing him answer questions about pop culture. Adam suggests if the president wants everyone to feel good, he should do it by fixing the economy and not spending time sitting around on the couch.

 

The last news story deals with Laurence Fishburne's daughter, who has decided to jumpstart her career by appearing in a sex tape. Teresa compares it to the bum she sees living in her neighborhood who once attended Juliard. Fishburne's daughter montana compares herself to Kim Kardashian, saying that clearly it helped her career so why not hers?

 

Adam brings in the lead guitar player for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Nils Lofgren. They chat about the improvisational nature of performing shows, in particular getting set lists only 30 minutes before a show and still not quite adhering to them. Adam asks if there are any songs that he hates having to play, but Nils mostly just jokes about playing songs where no one really knows what the chorus is.

 

They also talk a little bit about hanging out and bumping into random celebrities. Adam points out that there may be higher profile people than Bruce, but no one's cooler. Nils then plays a beautiful Neil Young song, which prompts Adam to talk about the ability for musicians to perform outside their head (unlike comedians). Nils tells more great stories from the road, speaks about attending the Comedy Central roast, and then plays one final song to send everyone out.

Get ready for TWiTW! The very best of the Adam Carolla Show from this week in one single podcast.

Jul 29, 2010

After a special guest helps with advertising, Teresa jumps right into the news. The first story deals with the alleged details of Chelsea Clinton’s upcoming wedding. Adam jokes about the gift he bought for her, and talks with Teresa about the recent trend of sexing it up at your wedding. Adam says Chelsea’s wedding seems a bit expensive, and in today’s economy, it should be reeled in a bit.

 

In other news, a recent bear attack in Montana left several dead and wounded. Adam talks about the ‘wildly unsatisfying’ way to defend yourself against a bear, and Teresa talks about her experiences in Yosemite. Adam then reflects on going camping with Donny, having nothing more than a blanket. Other news stories revolve around Tiger Wood’s mistress avoiding rehab, an update on the woman with gigantism, and the latest Kate Gosselin drama.

 

Intern Logan joined Adam at Comic-Con, and helped out for a segment of Nerdwalking. Random nerds are asked questions about sports and other manly things, and Adam, Teresa, and Bryan compete to see who can predict if the nerd will know the correct answer.

 

Author Tony O’Neill, hailed as the It Writer of the Decade, joins the studio. He talks to Adam about growing up in Lancashire, England and moving out to Los Angeles after a great party. In the past, Tony has struggled with drug addiction, however he disagrees with Dr. Drew about the image of recovery. As Tony puts it, ‘to a junkie, a beer isn’t a relapse.’ They talk about other authors on the It list, and Adam gets advice on releasing his book and the publishing world.

 

Tony is also a musician, and Adam recalls a story that a recent guest from the band Yoso told him about a drug-related incident. In honor of the super-band, they start listening to a Toto song, then a version of William Shatner singing Harry Chapin’s ‘Taxi.’ Adam recently played the original on the show, and he plays it again for Teresa and Tony, reminding everyone of it’s ‘positive message for the kids’. Finishing off the news, Teresa talks about the birth of a Zedonk, and also a religious bench advertisement that suggests the end of days is nigh. Tony jokes that if that’s true, then Jesus would really love his latest book.

 

Be sure to pick up a copy of ‘Sick City,’ and also check out Tony’s live reading/singing/drinking, this Friday in Portland, and Saturday in San Francisco.

Jul 28, 2010

Teresa is back after visiting relatives, and talks a bit about her grandmother's funeral. She reflects on her parents dropping her off to spend time with her grandparents when she was a kid, and Adam recalls his grandparent's extremely small swimming pool. He adds that kids shouldn't think they're an inconvenience to their parents, though unfortunately both he and Teresa were raised to feel that way. Adam also talks a bit about his book being on the best seller list, and says he's worried about his parents reading it because he doesn't say anything nice about them in it.

 

Jumping into the news, Adam and Teresa discuss the Wikileak scandal, which according to one source, lists '92,000 reasons to end the war.' Adam is confused because he always thought that the war in Afghanistan was supposed to be 'the good war.' They discuss a controversy surrounding training police officers in Afghanistan, and Adam also talks about Terrell Owens shitty attitude and recent switch to Cincinnati. Another news story revolves around Angelina Jolie's private sex life, as she recently mentioned a few celebrities that she was willing to date when she was single. It reminds Adam of his relationship with Natasha Henstridge, and how he found out too late she was willing to go out with him. The last news story deals with Paris Hilton being caught doing the Hitler salute.

 

Alonzo Bodden (from Last Comic Standing and 101 Cars You Must Drive) comes in the studio with a soft cast around his wrist. He hurt it after falling off his Ducati and says that his hand swelled up 'like a Mickey Mouse glove.' He says that the pain hasn't really been so bad, it's mostly just the inconvenience. The guys start talking about being too tall to ride a motorcycle, and also a couple celebrities that are sponsoring racing teams. The segment ends with them talking about doing comedy gigs to help buy new tires for their bikes.

 

For 'Who The Fuck Sells This Shit,' Adam takes a call from someone selling clipboards for $1 a piece. So far she hasn't sold any. Another caller is selling blank cassette tapes that he found in his garage, and Adam teases him about selling them for cash only. He and Teresa compare online trading to hitchhiking, wondering who is more dangerous, the person selling, or the person picking up. The last caller is selling 86 new cans of beer for a buck a piece, but Adam convinces him to just drink it.

 

In fact, the beer seller is trying to raise money to help his band The Inevitable Backlash, as they go into recording their first album. We hear a bit of their single and even watch a part of the music video. Announcer Dawson recognizes the porn star who stars in the video as a Hustler Honey that he saw on a porno tape once. Before signing off, Adam teases Donny for mispronouncing La Jolla, even though his own last name has a soft J.

Jul 27, 2010

Adam begins with a couple of complaints about the lack of internet at his house, and the cable guy who takes forever to show up. He also discusses his ranking on the iTunes charts, his maid’s forgetful habits, and why he can’t feed his dog cashews.

 

Teresa is still out until tomorrow, so Bald Bryan is stepping in for the news. Barack Obama will be on The View Adam complains about how shitty the show is. Bald Bryan also talks about a woman suing American Airlines for not refunding her baggage check after losing her luggage, and they briefly discuss Veterans’ access to medical marijuana prescriptions.

 

Prior to recording, the cable guy came by the studio and bumped into Bald Bryan’s truck (Bald Bryan says, ‘Not the worse thing that happened to me this year.’) Larry Miller sits on the couch to add more breaking news to the story. From there, the guys jump into Hypothetical Road Trips and talk about driving with unfortunate people like Adult Male Harry Potter Fans, and Wannabe Competitive Eaters.

 

Mary Lynn Rajskub Spreads Her Legs is the new one-woman show, performing weekends in Hollywood. The actress steps in to talk about the differences in performing a show as opposed to standup, and Adam discusses the benefits of improv and being too lazy to memorize lines. Mary Lynn also talks about becoming a mom, raising a family, and living with her personal trainer husband. Adam talks about his exercise habits, and says that everyone he knew in high school is pretty much in the same shape now as they were then.

 

Adam complains about Seal and Heidi Klum being too much in love, and takes a couple of listener phone calls. The first asks Adam his thoughts on the racism in Tyler Perry films, and this leads Adam into a long rant comparing Perry’s career with Tony Villaragosa. Adam also talks about Kirk Cameron, who made the highest grossing independent movie of 2008 with a deeply religious film. The second caller asks for Adam’s views on the electric car, and Adam thinks it’s a great idea, criticizing American society for their lack of imagination.

 

In the last section of the news, Bald Bryan brings up the salary scandal of Robert Rizzo in the City of Bell. He resigned after word got out over his inflated paycheck, but as a result, he’s now receiving the highest resignation payout in the state. Adam says, “what a shocker we’re bankrupt.” The last news story deals with the death of 19 people during a stampede at The Love Parade in West Germany. Adam complains about electronic music, and before they sign off, both Adam and Mary Lynn rap over repetitive beats.

Jul 26, 2010

Adam opens by discussing a recent walk with his dog and daughter. He has some interesting questions about dog poop etiquette, and talks about the hot Indian chick who didn't seem to follow it. He also talks about driving his daughter up the street without her seat belt on, and how she immediately ratted him out to his wife.

 

Bald Bryan is covering the News, and since Comic-Con was this past weekend, all the stories revolve around the convention. Adam is reminded of a classic 70s song he talked about during an interview, and says that he doesn't quite get the obsession with comics, even though he has an obsession with cars. 'Everyone needs a hobby,' he says, but at least his is tangible. One news story from Comic-Con revolves around a guy who was stabbed in the face with a pen for trying to hold a seat, and another story deals with casting confirmations for the new Avengers movie. Adam also takes time to complain about asshole parking lot attendants and pawn shops.

 

As Tom Arnold is brought into the studio, Adam thanks all the listeners for their generous pre-orders of his book even though it isn't released until November. Tom takes a seat and he and Adam joke about how Tom is usually a good bet for the 'death pool' since he's struggled with many personal issues in the past. Tom talks about the time that Roseanne Barr sang the national anthem (exactly 20 years ago), and how he ended up in jail after assaulting a paparazzi in the airport who tried to assault her once they landed.

 

And speaking of prison, Tom was recently on TMZ speaking about Lindsay Lohan's jail sentence. He speaks from experience and says that prison is a bad place to detox. Tom also talks about referring various celebrity friends to Dr. Drew, and he tells a few stories about failed attempts to helping people get sober. Adam talks more with Tom about his struggles with addictions, and says that like a lot of people, Tom has a metronome built inside his brain. He asks Tom how he slows it down, and Tom confesses that his strength comes from his relationship with his girlfriend. They also spend some time talking about Tom's relationship with Roseanne, and how technology has made it possible for people to anonymously say horrible things about people constantly.

 

Wrapping up the show, Adam takes a few calls for rounds of What Can't Adam Complain About. Topics vary from saving the animals, to sign language interpreters.
