Adam had a lovely day today, and talks about getting up at 5:45am this morning to roll through radio calls. He talks about the unique relationship you have with the publicist who runs you through the calls, and complains about having to wake up before the dog and rest of the family.

In the news today, Arnold Schwarzenegger has been revealed to have fathered a love-child with a member of his staff. Adam is ‘shocked’ that a Kennedy woman was cheated on. The guys also talk about Stephen Hawking’s claim that heaven is a myth, and Adam goes on a side jag about a familiar Belinda Carlisle song. The guys also talk about a dwarf who’s suing Starbucks after being fired, and Alison talks about being a greeter at Sam Goody.

Today’s guest is Karrine Steffans, author and ‘sexpert.’ Adam asks her about her earlier life as a music video dancer and Karrine talks about growing up on St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands. Adam finds out more about her career as a writer and sexpert, and jokes about a bad experience he had with edible panties. Karrine also talks about the One-Man Gang Bang, glory holes, and some of the other tricks she’s learned for the advanced, adventurous lover. The show wraps up with a round of Blah Blah Blog, where the guys try to match the blogs to the celebrities who wrote them.

Adam is both happy and sad to report that the Mangria craze is sweeping the nation. He also talks about his love of entering the freeway, but goes on a rant about drivers who act like ‘professional victims’.  Adam then talks about his experience watching ‘24 Hours of Lemons’ in Reno, and teases Larry Miller about how segment producers react to late night talk show stories.

Contrary to yesterday’s news report, Donald Trump is not running for President, and will not be making an announcement on his show. The guys all wonder what Trump sleeps in, and Larry suggests it would be weird to see Trump in anything other than a suit. The guys also talk about Chelsea Handler being cast in her own movie, and the mom who injected her kid with Botox, and has now lost custody. Adam also talks about his own children, and how he loves to wrestle with them.

Today’s guest is Oscar Nuñez, one of the stars of The Office, and also Adam’s old stand-in from The Man Show.

May 13, 2011

Live from the Jon Lovitz Comedy Club, Adam starts the show addressing some serious rich white guy problems. He talks about his publicists sending him across town for a radio gig, only to find it was a complete waste of time. Later he had to drive back across town to record a podcast, and at the end of the day he let off all his steam on his assistant Jay.

Alison heads into the crowd to take questions from the audience. One guy has his parents in town for graduation, even though he hasn’t been to class in 9 months. Another fan asks Adam which celebrity he’d want to hook up with, and Adam also seriously reflects on chasing material wealth when a fan asks him to talk about the meaning of life.

Comedian Paul Rodriguez comes out next, and talks about performing at the El Portal in North Hollywood, where Adam grew up. Adam rants about more rich white guy problems, and talks about the useless Spanish lessons he got in high school. Adam and Paul exchange some Tijuana stories, and talk about how to fix the situation in Mexico.

Alison then announces a new behind-the-scenes special you can watch if you subscribe to Ustream, and jumps into the news. In celebrity news, Ashton Kutcher is set to replace Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men, and Bristol Palin admits to having corrective jaw surgery. Adam also talks about the day’s latest backyard snake fatality, and brings the show back around to Tijuana tacos.

Adam sits down one-on-one with Andrew Breitbart, and tells him that he was just enjoying his appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher. Adam realizes they agree on a lot of issues, but not when it comes to John Waters’ movies. Adam also talks to Andrew about his new book, ‘Righteous Indignation,’ and Andrew talks about being a voice for the tea party movement.

Adam then goes on a rant about Hollywood films being shot outside of the state because of all the taxes. Andrew agrees, suggesting that overnight Los Angeles went from one of the greatest cities to one of the crappiest. They also talk about judging a city by its bumper stickers, and conclude that LA as we know it is over. The conversation wraps with a conversation about the origins of Huffington Post.

Things jump over to a previously recorded Skype chat with musician James Blunt. Adam asks James to talk about his earlier military career, and how it prepared him to now be an extremely popular musician. Adam also asks James for his thoughts on knowing you’re about to take part in a military operation where someone will be killed.

Adam then goes on a rant about his second audiobook, and discusses how he never realized as a kid how stupid adults could be. Around this time, Skype begins to cut out, and Adam and James exchange their own Skype woes. James also has room service delivered, and Adam attempts to talk to the delivery guy as James writes in a tip.

As James prepares to enjoy his chicken wings, Adam jumps back to James’ career in the military, and how things took off for him musically after that. The show wraps with James talking about his time protecting the Queen, and how he eventually signed with an American record label.

He also goes on a rant about flavored coffee, and reminds everyone the importance of trusting your gut.

Next on the podcast is special guest Tim Daly, one of the stars of Private Practice, and according to an argument Adam and Bald Bryan got into, the star of the film Diner. The guys then talk about Tim’s work on The Sopranos, and his work as President of The Creative Coalition.

Moving into the news, the top story is the split of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver. Tim helps shed some light on their relationship by discussing a vacation he went on with them several years ago.

At the top of the show, Adam reflects on a ridiculous new LAPD bumper sticker he saw while meeting with his writing partner Kevin Hench. Larry Miller is also in studio, and shares his hatred for lame bumper stickers. Both guys agree the cops should stop writing us chicken shit tickets so we can focus on their other apparently important causes like senior abuse and human trafficking.

Moving into the news, Alison talks about Pippa Middleton’s $5 million offer to appear in a porno. Larry can’t help but drool over Kim Kardashian instead.

At the top of the show, Adam welcomes Andy Dick back to the show Adam tells a story from the early days of the podcast, when Andy smoked a cigar and Donny kept it as a souvenir. Andy also talks about the past drama with Jon Lovitz, and brings everyone up to speed on his arrest several nights ago.

The guys then dive into the earlier career of Sheryl, and she talks about making it as an actress even though her mom wanted her to be a doctor or lawyer. The conversation then steers toward social issues, and the group discusses why a larger dialogue needs to take place about the education problem in this country.

It’s been a whole day since Adam saw a snake, so he’s feeling pretty good. He talks with Alison and Bryan about why sitcoms fail, and compares running a studio to managing a football team. He also goes on a rant about focus groups, and wonders why we even need executives at all.

Into the news with Alison, there are people concerned that Osama Bin Laden’s death is a conspiracy.

Adam opens the show discussing the ‘odyssey’ he had this weekend while traveling in the mid-west. He complains about locals not telling him the appropriate time to get to the airport, and how the theaters take all your money through their fees. Adam also rants about today’s youth and people yelling in hotel hallways at 6am.

Adam welcomes both Kirk Morrison, and Dr. Bruce to the show next. Adam talks with Kirk about having to change his NFL number, and some of the owner-player conflicts currently plaguing the league.

As Dr. Bruce moves into his medical news segment, he brings up the death of Osama Bin Laden. Adam is still waiting to discuss the heroism involved because he’s been burned too many times. The guys also debate what this will mean for airport security, and Adam wonders why Osama wasn’t sold out much sooner than now.

Discussing more medical news, Dr. Bruce describes a particularly graphic medical condition, and reveals the unfortunate news that flushing the toilet with the lid open will aerate your feces. The guys then cut live to CNN, streaming in front of the White House, and Adam predicts someone on the left will soon be on-air complaining about all the cheering in the US.

Phil Rosenthal speaks to Adam about his love of Adam’s audiobook. Adam exchanges the love fest, and shares his enthusiasm for Phil’s latest project, ‘Exporting Raymond.’ The documentary follows Phil as he brings the successful series ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’ to a Russian audience, and tries to deal with execs who have no idea what is or isn’t funny.

Of course Adam relates to dealing with unhelpful studio notes, and shares his own thoughts on the difference between a show that’s ‘nice’ versus ‘funny’. The guys also discuss the importance of actually caring about the characters you’re investing in, and why it’s better to be real instead of broad. Phil gives Adam advice to make the show he wants, regardless of notes, since it’s likely they’ll cancel it anyway.

Moving on, Adam asks Phil about the movie screenings that he does at his house, and Phil explains that the tradition goes back to his high school days, having friends over to watch HBO movies on TV. Adam tells a particularly embarrassing story from when he had to leave one of Phil’s screenings early, and Phil encourages Adam’s self esteem.

Toward the end of the podcast, the guys talk about the benefits to being nice as you make your way through the industry. Adam also talks about watching Pixar films with the kids, and jokes about his nanny interpreting the lyrics to La Cucaracha. As the show wraps up, things come full circle to making sitcoms, and Phil says you have to pick your battles. Adam thanks Phil for his time, and looks forward to the next movie night.
