Adam Carolla has long been one of the most prolific talkers in comedy he co-hosted Loveline for ten years, The Man Show for five and, since 2005, his own talk show, first on the radio and now as a daily podcast. Unscripted conversation suits him. The biggest laughs are always the improv laughs, he says.
So his standup tour is a little unconventional. Carolla says he feels it would be a dereliction of duty to come without any prepared material, but the show, which includes flashing pictures on a screen behind him, still leaves plenty of room for riffing. It just gets you to the punchline a little faster, explains Carolla. If Im talking about how fat my dog is, Ill just show you a picture of my fat dog. And when he goes off on a tangent, a crew member will start googling whatever hes talking about and show random pictures on the screen.
