Adams talks about his trip to the optometrist, and the conversation he had with the doctor about the film ‘Crimes and Misdemeanors,’ which the guy did not recognize. He also talks about getting some sass from his kid Sonny, and calls his assistant in to discuss why his call-in numbers were incorrect this morning. The guys then listen to a segment of The Lotzi Tapes, and Adam goes on a jag about the spelling of his grandpa’s hometown.
Next up, the guys play a round of Mr. Brightside, where you call in to tell Adam your problems, and he tries to make you feel better. Callers include a guy who was dumped by his girlfriend over the phone, a guy who got bit at a concert, and a wedding DJ who accidentally displayed his porn on the big screen. Adam’s favorite call takes home a pair of free tickets to an upcoming performance.
Today’s guest is Jim Florentine, also known as Special Ed on Crank Yankers. The guys listen to a classic clip from the show, and talk about recording the call during the first season. Adam recalls that a lot of upcoming talent helped out on the show before they were considered famous, and he talks with Jim about how the show influenced his stand-up career.
Jumping into the news, the Supreme Court heard the case against Walmart regarding female discrimination, but said the class action lawsuit is not allowed. The guys also talk about what goes on in a 99cent store, and Adam talks about getting stuff for free all the time as an adult, and never having enough as a kid. Adam then goes on a tangent about his maid getting a boob job; and as the show wraps up, the guys discuss the death of Jackass’s Ryan Dunn, and comedians getting in trouble for saying bad things on stage.
