Adam asks comedian David Cross about his recent visit to London. David says he was once there for six months, and often travels back and forth. They talk about the shrillness of the American accent, and how a British accent makes you sound smart even when you’re a dumbass. They also talk about the London paparazzi scene, and David is fascinated how people of a lower economic class can be so fascinated by rich people soap operas.

 

After a character breakdown of classic sitcoms like Good Times and Family Affair, David mentions that he once saw actor John Amos naked in a health spa. Adam complains about saunas with no steam, and talks with David about proper towel etiquette. Adam also talks about a naked guy he saw shaving in Las Vegas, and tells a story involving Ray from his bachelor party in Lake Arrowhead.

 

David talks about the NY hipsters, and people that consider themselves above trash TV, but do nothing but promote it by writing about it. He points out that if these people didn’t write snarky comments about it, no one would be writing about it period. Adam agrees, saying it’s ‘weird to dedicate your life to other people.’ David points out ‘it’s not even criticism. It’s just making obvious fun of an obvious thing to make fun of, and that’s all you do.’

 

The guys then spend time talking about their relationship with their fathers, quickly transitioning into a conversation about their sisters. Adam reflects that growing up in his house was just like growing up every man for himself—his sister was just another person trapped in the same situation he was. David talks about his trailer park sister, whom he has nothing in common with. He then talks about Thanksgiving dinner with the family, and bailing his sister out of prison.

 

The topic begins to revolve around the sensitive issue of money, and whether or not rich people should pay more in taxes. There’s a clear disagreement between Adam and David, but both guys get in excellent points to defend their view. David also talks about the pains of doing stand-up comedy back when he was first beginning, and agrees with Adam that Boston comedians have a mean energy and find joy in other people’s suffering.

 

Discover your own joy watching ‘The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret,’ airing Fridays on IFC at 10pm. (Encores air Tuesday at 11).

Oct 7, 2010

The Adam Carolla Show welcomes Brody Stevens, as Adam is still performing live shows in Houston this week. Brody jokes that he’s wearing shorts on this very rainy day—not giving into the weather. He jokes about the Padres, discusses the origins of his name, and sings an original song accompanied by tambourine.

 

Brody then takes a series of listener calls, beginning with someone who remembers Brody from his open mic days at The Gotham. Another caller asks about the sketch comdy pilot The Right Now! Show, and Brody goes on a side story about meeting Michael Chiklis in a Starbucks. Lastly, Brody takes a call from a guy living in Studio City, and gives him some advice on the ladies.

 

After the break, Danielle Harris comes in studio, star of the new horror film, Hatchet II. They talk about the controversy surrounding the film: it was supposed to be the first unrated, uncut film distributed by a major theater chain, but AMC decided to pull it from theaters. Danielle hopes the film will be available via Video onDemand in the near future.

 

Brody talks to her more about starring in horror films, and admits that he himself was terrified of horror movies growing up. They talk about Danielle’s experience working in four separate Halloween films, and the superstitions of how being killed in a movie can affect your acting career.

 

Brody and Danielle also talk about growing up Jewish but never getting a bar or bat mitzvah. After some time, they go back to discussing Danielle’s new film, and review the cast of horror icons that are featured alongside her.

 

Finally, the guys take your calls for a round of Hobo Power. You tell us your stink story, and we'll rank the funk!

Since Adam is doing shows in Texas, Paul Gilmartin is filling in as host. Guesting on the show is Jimmy Pardo, but Jimmy points out that normally Paul is the guest on his show. Paul says his plan for the show is to take calls discussing Awkward Sexual Moments. He tells his own story from his teen years, and Jimmy chimes in with his.

 

Jumping into your calls, stories vary from a guy who gruesomely lost his virginity, and a guy who dealt with a woman who had bowel control issues. Overall, Paul and Jimmy are horrified by some of the stories, wishing they were 'more fumbly' and 'less vomitty.'

 

In the second half of the show, Paul opens by contemplating where in time he would go if he had a time machine. He starts discussing guitar player Django Reinhardt, an incredible musician who played with two fingers. They also talk about Tony Iommi, who lost part of his fingers in a sheet metal accident, but was inspired by Reinhardt to keep playing. They also chat about Woodstock, and some of their musical guilty pleasures.

 

Going back to the phone lines, listeners have a wide range of times and places they'd like to observe: from the 1920's, to the time of Jesus, to watching your folks get it on. Jimmy thinks it's a crap bit, but the calls keep coming.

 

Listen to Jimmy Pardo's podcast: Never Not Funny. Find more info at www.jimmypardo.com

Show Summary: Matt Fondiler

Oct 5, 2010

Adam and Dr. Drew open by discussing the recent appearance of Guns N' Roses drummer Steven Adler on Adam's show. Dr. Drew explains how when they first met he was a mess, but that he responded extremely well to treatment. Adam also shares his thoughts on Lindsay Lohan and says it's tough to change when you're young. Dr. Drew points to Jack Osbourne as an example of someone young who it did work on, but he agrees that most young people just don't get it.

 

Adam asks Dr. Drew for advice on how to handle his daughter, who is already harboring strong dislike toward him. Drew suggests that part of it is genetic, but says he thinks something interesting will come of the relationship; and not necessarily what Adam thinks it will be. Adam also talks about doing activities with both his twins, but rarely getting one-on-one time. Dr. Drew points out that twins often define themselves by what their other twin is not. They then go on a tangent about the clown painting in Adam's bathroom.

 

The first call of the day deals with a 40-year-old who lacks the drive to be in a relationship. Adam discusses the trend of people coming from good environments that still don't want to be in relationships, and they both agree that it stems from prolonged adolescence.

 

Dr. Drew tells a story about visiting The Wrigley Mansion, where beautiful marble was recently discovered beneath the shag carpet.  It reminds Adam of an old pair of leather shoes he bought 10 years ago and still stores in a box even though they're ugly as hell. He goes on a huge rant, wanting people to apologize to him for shushing him when he said the shoes were ugly, or that a particular band or song sucked.

 

Adam also wants apologies for all the shitty promotions that he and Drew had to endure when they worked so closely all the time. Dr. Drew tells a story of how he and Adam had to endure Media Training, even though Adam said it was a waste of time. Adam and Drew were forced to sit through fake interviews, and Adam said nothing until he eventually let loose on the 'non-talent' and 'non-comedy' people that tried to dictate what he was supposed to say.

 

Jumping back into calls, Adam and Dr. Drew give a young listener some advice on how to approach women. Another caller is a guy whose wife is into rough sex, but he doesn't know how to initiate it. A second question from the same caller deals with anal sex, which leads Dr. Drew to discuss the dangers of Anal Cancer. He and Adam talk about Farrah Fawcett, and expand into other celebrity deaths that should have led to important discussions, but instead the media focused on other things.

 

All of this sends Adam into another rant about how parents need to take care of their kids, and even Drew gets fired up about this. Adam very quickly shuffles through a couple more calls involving cheating, and a couple that is no longer sexually active. To the latter, Adam suggests having a couple glasses of wine and getting it on, but Dr. Drew suggests getting proper medical evaluation if her husband is not physically able to perform. 

 

Get ready for a new season of Celebrity Rehab this December. And in the meantime, listen to Love Line at http://www.lovelineshow.com/

In memory of Greg Giraldo, we are re-airing his episode from 2009.

Greg will be deeply missed and our sympathies go out to his family and friends.

Oct 1, 2010

Adam sits down one-on-one with documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock. Morgan compliments Adam on the comfortable couches, and they compare the interview experience to doing an episode of Jay Leno or David Letterman. Morgan also talks a bit about his latest film, ‘Freakonomics,’ based on the best selling book. Adam asks Morgan about some of his favorite facts from the movie, and tries to figure out ways to incentivise Donny to move his bronco out of the garage.

 

The guys chat about their favorite documentaries, including The Kid Stays in the Picture, Overnight, and The King of Kong. Adam tells a story about rushing to see the latter documentary before meeting with the director, and being blown away by how unprepared everyone else was in the meeting. Adam jokes about preparedness in show biz, and mentions Jon Stewart’s recent appearance on Bill O’Reilly’s show.

 

Speaking more about Freakonomics, the film is broken down into different chapters, each directed by an all-star documentarian. Morgan is reminded of another chapter in the book, which deals with your child’s success in life based on how you name them. They talk about the experiments with various resumes, and also offer case studies about people with unusual names. 

 

Adam takes a couple listener calls, the first of which asks Morgan about his involvement with The Simpsons. Morgan talks about getting a call and thinking it was a prank, but clearly he was excited to be part of the 20th Anniversary special. Another caller inquires about a Super Size Me sequel, and Morgan considers how much weight he’d have to gain for it to be worth it. They get to talking about Robert DeNiro’s weight gain for Raging Bull, and eventually talk about their favorite scenes from Goodfellas, as well as discuss the new HBO series, Boardwalk Empire.

 

Adam asks Morgan about his LA schedule, and Morgan says it’s been almost all promotions for Freakonomics. He explains that the movie is available online, and also on demand; in conjunction with a limited theatrical release. They talk about some of the films they’ve seen recently on the big screen, and also analyze the communal experience of film, theater and sports, as opposed to seeing it alone.

 

Towards the end of the interview, Adam talks about interviewing Mike Tyson while he was promoting his documentary last year. He jokes about the difficulties of wrangling him and the filmmaker, and also wonders if Tyson is a sympathetic figure or not. Morgan cracks a joke about Tyson owning a tiger, and before long Adam and Morgan imagine being mauled by animals and becoming part of the food chain.

 

Check out Freakonomics via iTunes or onDemand. Also keep your eyes peeled Oct 12th on AMC for the new series, Committed. For more info, visit: www.morganspurlock.com
