On a Rolla

Adam Carolla probably would have never had such a fascinating career in radio and television broadcasting had he not first displayed his talent for comedic timing as the one-off boxing coach to future producing partner Jimmy Kimmel. He found himself in this random role in the mid-90s in order to prep Kimmel for a silly match hosted by LA radio station KROQ, but ended up charming Kimmel’s on-air colleagues. After impersonating an old man called Mr. Birchum on KROQ’s Kevin and Beanshow for a while, he ended up dispensing advice to horny teenagers on Loveline with Dr. Drew Pinsky and later to horny middle-aged men on The Man Show, with a detour into puppets performing pranks on Crank Yankers. He settled into podcasting in 2009 with The Adam Carolla Show, and it has since gone on to earn Guinness World Records-charting downloads. Experience Carolla's uncensored mind firsthand tonight as new episodes of the show are recorded in a comedy club setting.
