Getting right to the news, Paul Reubens recently did an interview with Playboy talking about his arrest in an adult movie theater. Adam and Teresa discuss the facts of the case, and Adam comments on masturbation habits. They go on a side jag about some of the ‘strange procedures’ Adam has gone through over the years, but Adam brings it back to the arrest with complaints about the usage of police resources.

 

Next up is the reveal of the 10 Sexiest Celebrity Stoners. Everyone talks about Charlize Theron and her apple bong, and Dawson chimes in as being ‘the MacGuyver of bongs’. Talking more about getting high and spacing out, Adam recalls losing his car at the Rose Bowl, and Teresa talks about having sleep deprivation as a result of her baby. At some point Donny comes in to defend himself for not getting Adam the right cup of coffee while they were in Pebble Beach.

 

Comedian of Comedy Brian Posehn enters the studio lookin’ fit. He talks about raising a 15-month-old kid, and his experiences losing weight and being very tall. Adam talks with him about growing up with the feeling of never wanting kids or a family, but eventually making the switch. Brian also goes into more detail about some of the adversity he faced growing up ‘the poor skinny weird kid that tried to be funny.’

 

Before a few rounds of Made-Up Movie, Donny comes in to fix the phones. After getting through the technical difficulties, Adam takes your calls of fake movie titles, and turns them into brilliant plots in minutes.

 

Everyone listens to a track off Brian’s album, ‘Fart and Wiener Jokes.’ They talk about the strange lyrics found in classic Kenny Rogers songs, and break down the lyrics to both ‘Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love To Town’ and ‘Coward of The County.’  Adam talks about the time he interviewed Kenny Rogers, and also jokes about what it must have been like to collaborate with the guy or have a song written about you.

Aug 19, 2010

Teresa is out today, so Mike Lynch is stepping in for the news. But before they get started, Adam tells a couple Donny stories. The first involves a long rant where Adam discusses the conspiracy of paying for your water at restaurants, and the next is a drawn out discussion about Donny borrowing Adam’s CBS pilot and not explaining that he watched it. Bald Bryan also chimes in on the argument, trying to determine the proper social etiquette to giving your friend feedback.

 

In the news, Steven Tyler has been strongly suggested as the newest judge on American Idol. Adam and Mike agree that the show has lost its momentum, and reflect on the best Aerosmith songs. Later, Adam talks about a car auction where he didn’t bid on a car wanted, but heard was ‘not what you think it is.’ Afterwards he met the guy who bought the car, but he didn’t want to ruin his day. The last news story revolves around the highest paid hip-hop artists, and Adam goes on a long rant about rich people paying their ‘fair share’ of taxes.

 

The Mighty Mighty Bosstones frontman and long time friend Dicky Barrett sits on the couch, and talks about Mike August booking him for the show. They also talk about Adam’s big ‘Garage Mahal’ makeover, and the experience of renovating the warehouse out back. Adam compliments Dicky on his past work as a bartender, and Dicky talks about tending bars from the Fatted Calf in Boston, to Adam’s private parties. He and Adam decide to trade their favorite stories, and Dicky unravels a truly epic story about traveling through Mexico, and eating PB&J sandwiches.

 

In exchange, Adam tells the story of a road trip with his old friend Daniel Kellison, an obsessive Boston Red Sox fan. Adam complains about the boring car rides, and hanging out with rich people he didn’t like anyway. Everyone then goes on a side jag about watching sports, hanging with Bill Simmons and Cousin Sal, and later they throw in some music related talk about the history of ska and the better Reggae songs.

 

After a quick round of Germany or Florida, Dawson tells a story of trying to get tickets to a Bosstones’ show and getting recognized by Dicky at the end of the set. Adam talks about the energy of the horn section, and says they have the type of show where it doesn’t matter if you know the songs, you’ll have a great time no matter what.

Aug 18, 2010

Adam opens up talking about being a trucker, and the various songs and movies based on that lifestyle. He wonders why people get excited about Tom Selleck Made-For-TV movies, when there are 'real movies' one or two channels over. He recalls a recent experience with Donny and Sandy Ganz, watching Walker Texas Ranger on TV. Haley Joel Osment and Mackenzie Phillips were both guest stars, and Adam can't believe the episodes made it to air. There's also some talk about racist backing music on the show, and Bald Bryan gushes about The Expendables.

 

Adam has a manuscript of his book with him, and he and Teresa start talking about the dedication pages. Adam doesn't understand why you have to thank people who are just doing their normal job, and wants to limit the amount of people he references. He talks about how some TV shows have tons of producers, and how this inflated number diminishes from the people who actually contribute to the show. Teresa, on the other hand, thanked tons of people in her book, however she recently removed her Dad from the list. She talks about the recent loan she co-signed with him, and the foreclosure that is now plaguing her credit. Adam rants about the non-responsibility of some people, and suggests their dads should have a  'financial tard off'. 

 

In the news, Dr. Laura is involved in a racial slur scandal after saying the N-word a reported 11 times during a listener call. They listen to the clip, as well as her follow up clip on Larry King suggesting that she is not renewing her radio contract when it's up at the end of the year so she can preserve her first amendment rights to say what she wants. Adam talks about the 'witch hunt for racists' in our country, but also doesn't understand why people listen to her show anyway. In other news, Tersesa brings up Blagojevich being found guilty of one felony offense.

 

Joel Stein enters the studio, immediately remarking on the condition of Adam's garage, which Adam explains is being renovated for a TV show. Joel is actually writing a book about how to be a man, so he can pass the knowledge onto his son. Since undergoing this project, he has done everything from UFC fighting, to firefighting, to hunting, and more. Joel talks about being trained to kickbox by Randy Couture, and also recalls with Adam a controversial boxing match he once attended. He also asks Adam to teach him about cars, and Adam spends a long time explaining how cars work, and what makes them so appealing.

 

Jumping back into the news, a South Carolina woman killed both of her kids, then faked a car crash to blame it on. Joel is fascinated by Teresa's selection of the story, and wonders if she feels better reading about bad parenting since she is currently raising a son. Teresa also talks about new developments in understanding Lou Gehrig disease, and Adam goes into a long rant about playing football and having your bell rung. He talks more about the 'sports mentality,' and how some people are 'used to dudes telling you how to do shit.' He wraps up the show talking about how his own son is a puss, and feels the need to teach him how to be a man.

Adam and Teresa jump directly into some sad local news: the fruit vendor who works near Teresa has been stabbed. They talk about the mental condition of people capable of such actions, and Adam gives some unique advice to people organizing the federal budget.

 

Teresa talks about the death of the Craig’s List killer in prison, and Adam anticipates the pending lawsuits. In other news, they also talk about Kara DiGuardio being let go from American Idol, and Adam is reminded of losing his job at the radio station. They also discuss more Mel Gibson drama, and lastly the relationship between Sadie Frost and Jude Law.

 

Larry Miller comes on the show and adds more color to Adam’s joke about living ‘ass-to-fist’. He and Adam laugh about how they used to write sitcom jokes back in the day, and also discuss life in prison. They play a round of Hypothetical Questions, and Teresa is reminded of her recent experience getting a book blurb from Jenny McCarthy. Larry also tells some stories from his party days, and Adam recalls dealing with drunk people.

 

Rachelle Spector comes in studio, and Adam talks to her about her marriage to producer Phil Spector. Adam asks about the rumors surrounding his large restaurant tips, and also gets more details about his second degree murder trial. Rachelle talks about her love and devotion to this day, and how she’s earned an investigative license to assist him in the court appeals process.

 

They also talk about her work at Genius Forever Records, and the release of her album, ‘Out of My Chelle.’ They listen to a sample and go on a side jag about trombone solos. Adam asks her a bit about her background, and suggests she would be great as a judge on American Idol. Rachelle talks to Adam about his experience on Dancing with the Stars, and asks him to hook her up with a gig.

 

Wrapping up the news, Teresa goes through thefrisky.com’s list of super inappropriate celebrity dads. Adam offers his criticisms of Rod Stewart, Ryan O’Neal, Donald Trump, and several others. They also talk to Rachelle about her marriage to an older man, and working on Phil Spector’s hairstyles.

Adam was still in Pebble Beach today so enjoy This Week in Last Week, looking back on the best moments of last week's Adam Carolla show.

Aug 13, 2010

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.

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.

Aug 5, 2010

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.

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.
