Gunny Highway: Pardon Me Sultan: Don't bother with the transcript. It's stuff we already knew about Drew's fight with the trolls, supplemented by Carolla emphasizing what a loser he is.

Interesting that Carolla's defense as to why he shouldn't be sued boiled down to "Do you know who I am?", buttressed by the even lamer "Don't you know who I know?"

I'd consider my five minutes a complete waste except that it did serve to cement the observation that his obscurity is entirely well deserved.

He has a pretty successful podcast.


That's nice.  His Man Show co-host has is own late night television show.  I wonder if they stay in touch?

rickythepenguin: Decent interview, was hoping Aceman would ask Drew more about what Fark "is" instead of, "50 million page hits a year", "go there if you want to laugh".  i think Fark is so much more but whatevs.  You don't know from the very brief referecnes to Fark if this is like, FunnyOrDie, Reddit, or whatever.  Maybe a little, "you can ytalk about sports, entertainmen, politics, you meet people in real life, we  have parties in cities, a convention, etc."  but whatever.


It seemed like Drew was in a hurry or something.  He wasn't on very long (maybe 10 mins at the most) and he just seemed rushed.

rickythepenguin: the carolla hate bugs me though.


secularsage: What's with the hate for Adam Carolla


I enjoy listening to his show.  While some of his stuff is annoying in the "morning zoo" aspect of things, he still is very informative, has excellent guests, and poses questions that need to be asked about the current state of things, even if some people might not like those questions.  

And while some people say he rode on Kimmels coattails, I say that he saw and opportunity and ran with it.  He gets to do what he wants and has a pretty sizable following.

He was the best Man at Kimmels wedding last year.

Teiritzamna: Drew mentions "hot coffee" lawsuits as support for his arguments.

I often agree with Drew, but . . .

Sure.  He has a successful podcast, an outlet that is getting bigger by the day, so I wouldn't consider him lurking in the shadows of obscurity.  But, no, he is not on cable television so he does not have the same visibility as Kimmell.

Adam is a bit irritating but he has my respect for calling out Gavin Newsom during Newsom's last book tour.  The guy is clearly an empty suit filled out with buzzwords.  The next day Colbert busted Newsom for peddling the same nonspecific garbage in his interview.  The guy was basically making a call to action for the sake of making a call to action and of no specific help to anyone at all.

I can't listen to him all the time but when he has DAG or Dana Gould on, it is great audio.

Actually, he is on cable TV now(granted, it is SPIKE).  He also just raised $1.4 million to make a movie.

Convince me to listen to Adam Carolla?

I'm kinda hoping somebody else will take one for the team then report back.

A transcript would be awesome.

Just make sure Carolla's part is in 64pt bold, italic Comic Sans. It's the only way to capture the lilting sound of his voice.

His movie The Hammer is actually pretty tolerable.

secularsage: What's with the hate for Adam Carolla?


Whenever he has a good guest I listen but I can agree with the people who take a shiat on his political views, he's basically a class warrior for rich people. The funny thing is all his money comes from middle class and poor people having enough discretionary income to be able to consume his entertainment so he wouldn't even exist as an entertainer if his political wishes came true.

I went to a live taping of an Adam Carolloa podcast. That turned out to be a really big waste of money and time.

The funny thing is all his money comes from middle class and poor people having enough discretionary income to be able to consume his entertainment so he wouldn't even exist as an entertainer if his political wishes came true.


I've listened to him explain his views quite a bit over the podcast years, and I think a lot of it has to do with his lack of empathy for other human beings. He seems to look at the world as, "I had nothing and I built something -- and so should you." He doesn't feel sorry for people who don't work hard at what they're good at, and while I disagree with him to a great extent, I do see where he's coming from. It's hard to argue with someone who has worked hard and built an inexplicable career for themselves that they don't deserve to hold onto what they've earned.

But Adam's not typical of most of the people he champions -- we have a lot of people who are rich because they're merely smart, advantaged or lucky and who don't see a need to share what they've got with the rest of the world. Adam, at least, reinvests his wealth into his personal brand and employs people to go along for the ride.

The guy didn't graduate high school and grew up in squalid poverty, can barely read, has written three books, has made his own movie by his own rules and is working on the Paul Newman racing documentary, lives in Hollywood Hills, has a bunch of rad cars including Lamborghini's, races cars on the weekends, remodels houses, has had several tv shows and has a new one started right about now and is a good father and husband to his family. Oh, and he is worth dozens of millions of dollars.

Ok haters, lets hear what you twats have accomplished...
