Penn Jillette's book and The Nerdist Way by Chris Hardwick.
His side stories.
This is just a waste of my time.
I've listened to every single thing Adam has put out and so I know much about Adam. But it's great to hear stories (especially about Ray) which I've never heard.
I think this is one of those things that you'd have to be there.
This was like one too long stand up comedy show.
I might have enjoyed it better down at the local comedy bar.
Too much cussing at times and talking about "Poop" too much..Overall the book was ok at the beginning, but 3/4 thru It was more difficult to keep listening. He is funny, but it kind of gets old his cussing and his stories get a little boring..
No I think i have had my fill of Adam, for now!!
Less cussing and less "poop" stories
What makes this book awesome is Carolla's narration. He kept me in stitches the entire time. I bought the book hoping to hear more of the philosophies that made him successful, instead I got a ton of hysterical stories. Still worth every penny!
Less potty humor.
Nasty topics. Shit head, shit bucket, peeing on each other.
Whispered under his breath, couldn't hear the whispered punchline.
Adam's other book "In fifty Years We'll All Be Chicks" is a must read companion to this book. To truly get the gist of what it was like to be Adam Carolla growing up and all the hilarity that entails you need to read both books.
I would sit in my car and listen long past I got to my destination because I couldn't wait to hear what was next in the crazy stories.
Here's hoping that Adam is busily working on his next comedy opus. That way I can have another several hours of smiling like crazy while driving around or sitting in the park.
Lover of listening to feel good books and knitting!!
Adam does it again, he tells great stories, and makes me laugh out loud!!! Great listen!
Insightful, hilarious, R rated. So three words and a letter.
Absolutely. The fact that he reads it himself, with emphasis and timing that wouldn't be found in a printed book, makes his book that much more entertaining.
Umm - Adam Carolla? Other than him, his buddies Chris & Ray. They all reminded me of my college days.
Several bouts of tear inducing laughter. I love listening to his podcasts, and this is like a "best of" show that lasts over eight hours. I have heard many of his stories before, but this collection of recollections was dellightful.
While this is one of my favorite audio books, I never would have been a fan of the pre-Dr. Drew version of Adam Carolla. The wonderful influence of each man's spirit upon the other has tempered their more extreme personality traits, lending sophistication to Adam's surly outlook upon the world and a degree of good natured manly grit to Drew's ultra type A personality.
Tell us about yourself!
This book is like any number of comedic movies geared toward young males. There is little you gain from it as a human, but it is pretty damned hilarious in many parts. I laughed out loud enough that I couldn't listen to it in public - because there is NO explaining that can be done in polite conversation.
One thing that I really enjoyed despite being a bit put off initially was the impromptu editing of the actual text in narrated form. The experience would be different if Carolla wasn't reading his own book and deciding to deviate onto non-written elaboration and I found this pretty entertaining after getting used to it. It reminded me of a conversation with friends over the first beer of the night - its tends to meander where it chooses as you all work through the rest of the case.
