Video of the Day: Adam Carolla to Tape Live Podcast at Cobb's

Categories: Comedy, Events

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 L.A. radio station KROQ, but ended up charming Kimmel's on-air colleagues.

Q&A: Wanda Sykes Gets Political -- But Not Too Political

After impersonating an old man called Mr. Birchum on KROQ's Kevin and Bean show 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-charting downloads. Experience Carolla's uncensored mind firsthand on Saturday and Sunday as new episodes of the show are recorded in a comedy club setting.

Watch the Adam Carolla Show live on Nov. 17 at 7:45 and 10 p.m. (also Nov. 18) at Cobb's Comedy Club, 915 Columbus (at Mason). Admission is $35.
