The great Adam carolla can do no wrong. If you are familiar with his work you will love this audio.
If you are a Carolla fan, this is a must!
I definitely would
This is a story of rags to riches. Adam Carolla is known for Crank Yankers, The Man Show with Jimmy Kimmel, Love Line with Dr. Drew and many other endeavors. In this book, which is a version of an autobiography, it turns out that he is truly a down to earth, smart and above all else funny. He is someone that I would love to hang out with and share some Mangria or a beer!
Yes. Hearing Adam talk about the stories gives greater insight.
God No by Penn from Penn and Teller. They both share a lot of their personal in the stories.
Hearing about his two front doors.
It was a really funny book
Great book, funny stories!
I listened to it on a long trip and almost had a accident due to laughing constantly and sometimes to the point i couldnt breath.
talking about his teen years
laugh till you pee
Listening to sanity being explained so directly and Adam Carolla's narration is spot on
A to Z
The entire book
Adam Carolla, sometimes, is a bit frustrating listening to on his podcast because he's always in high gear and repeats himself a lot. In this book he's straight ahead from the station to home!
Among comedy, there is no equal in audiobooks. This had me dying of laughter the entire duration.
It's hard to name a single one. I really liked his truck kill switch.
It's natural. You can tell he isn't reading it to you. He is ranting and storytelling ad hoc and that makes it more enjoyable.
It's hit or miss. Be warned you will most likely be offended or off put by some of his comments. A lot makes sense but some might make you cringe. I believe he flat out says men are smarter than women and that we should send kids with peanut allergies to an island. If you can brush that off and realize he is a just a comedian with exagerated opinions, some parts really are true/wise. It's just intermingled with half baked opinions.
Hilarious but depends on the listener. Feminists, homosexuals, etc enter at your own risk.
As in the title of this review, save your money and buy Dennis Leary. This is just 6 hours and 42 minutes of the unfunny rant of Carolla. The entire "book" is a contradiction. The speaker attempts to make a point then almost immediately contradicts himself. He portrays himself as an elitist that picked himself up from nothing and brags about it regularly. Ok, we get it.
This "book" is basically Carolla stating what he likes and what he doesn't like. And if you like what he dislikes, you're an idiot, or as he regularly uses, a "p*ssy". And Carolla uses "f*ck" too much. This doesn't make one seem tough or manly, as I'm sure Carolla believes, it makes one seem unintelligent. Which this barely literate, unfunny, high school graduate truly demonstrates this is him.
I had high hopes, but like much of anything Carolla does, I was let down by the same "America is going to the liberals" and "whoa is me, I'm a poor white male, feel sorry for me". Just buy Dennis Leary "Why We Suck". It's basically the same thing, but at least Leary offers laughs and is at times clever.
I haven't seen Adam Carolla since the Man Show ended years ago. I am pleased to report that he is sharper, wittier, and funnier than ever. He defends his provocative positions with humor and insight. Throughout the book, his improvisational skills are used to improve his manuscript. This added material is the cherry on top of the pie.
I encourage people to touch the sky of human imagination and read fantasy. My blog is the Importance of the Impossible.
Those not familiar with the podcast should know that Adam Carolla's rants range so far and wide that he's sure to offend at some point, but his humor is worth the occasional sting.
Easily the funniest book in my audio library. Carolla’s commentary on racism toward the end of the book is truly enlightening.
