Adam’s Antics

Adam Carolla has a big mouth, and it’s served him well.

For more than a decade, the outspoken “Ace Man” co-hosted radio’s legendary Loveline, dishing out sex tips and relationship advice between acerbic observations. His caustic quips and penchant for pissing people off also worked well for him on Comedy Central’s hilariously misogynistic The Man Show and kooky Crank Yankers programs, as well as his own syndicated radio show.

All three programs have since been axed, but Carolla is still as mouthy as ever. He’s been busy creating a popular weekly podcast downloaded by more than one million listeners and touring the country spreading his ridiculous rancor to sold-out crowds.

Carolla visits the Orpheum Theatre on Friday, April 23, and will likely entertain and offend his fans in Phoenix with such bits as “What Can't Adam Complain About” and “Why I Hate L.A.”
