At the top of the show, Alison actually has a complaint about her day. She talks about her childhood pet, and how she discovered today that the bird did not die the way she was told. Adam feels her pain, and talks about an argument he had with his daughter today in an attempt to feed her medicine. He talks about some of the other relentless females in his family, and also gets in some jabs about crappy 80s music.
The top news story today is Jeff Conway’s coma. Some people are blaming Dr. Drew, since Jeff appeared on Celebrity Rehab. Adam stands up for Dr. Drew, saying that he cares too much about everyone. Adam also recalls a recent awkward experience on Dr. Drew’s new show, when one of the panelists claimed she and Adam had slept together, even though Adam didn’t remember her. Also in the news is Forbes list of Most Powerful people, and the guys read through Adam’s actual rider, which breaks down what Adam requests when he performs at a venue.
Character actor Stephen Root is today’s guest, who Adam insists you’d instantly recognize. Stephen and Adam talk about the Shakespeare Center of Los Angeles, which helps make Shakespeare more accessible to the common man. They also talk about Stephen’s generous donation to the University of Florida, and some of his early beginnings moving around the country and eventually breaking into the acting biz.
Jumping back to the news, Alison talks about the World’s Oldest Woman and reveals that the mother-daughter Botox story was a hoax. Adam also talks about that point in time when you cross-over the celebrities you lusted over as a kid. As the show wraps up, the guys talk about Sugar Ray Leonard’s sexual abuse, Jerry Lewis’ telethon retirement, and Stephen reads the plugs in character as writer Buzz Bissinger.
