LaughStub's 11 questions with Adam Carolla

1. Who or what inspired you to become a comic?

The What was doing construction in the San Fernando Valley, and the Who was my cavalcade of horrible roommates in crappy one-bedroom apartments. Basically leading a miserable life with no air conditioning is what inspired me to do comedy.



2. When did you first know you were funny?

I knew it when I was probably 11, and it took twenty years to convince everyone else.



3. What was the very first joke you told and how did it go over?

My Hungarian grandfather said that Goulash meant Cowboy, and Cowboy Stew in Hungarian. I asked him when he was a young boy, did he play Goulash and Indians. I remember thinking that was funny when I was seven. My parents are still buzzing about it today.



4. Moment you knew you “made it.” If you haven’t felt that yet, what would you say is your biggest achievement?

This interview. I’ve been waiting my entire life to talk to the… who are you again?



5. They say comics are really just sad clowns inside. Is this true and


It is true, but the sad clown inside of me is a rodeo clown.


6. Best and worst part of your gig?

I do my podcast out of my own warehouse, hire people I like, and I wear whatever I want. I’d have to say the worst part is all the travel for my live shows. I like seeing the country, but the airports are a colossal pain in the ass.



7. Any pre-stage or pre-gig rituals?

Showing up, evacuation of bladder, and then slowly replenishing the bladder with Miller Lite.




8. Advice for new comics coming up in the game?

Treat your stage time like pilots treat seat time in the cockpit. Get as many minutes as you can under your belt.




9. New projects coming up for you that you’d like to share?

I have a delicious new product called “Mangria.” It’s Sangria with a kick. I’m excited. The only problem is I can’t stop drinking it myself.



10. What advice would you give your teenage self?

Don’t get into carpet cleaning.



11. Any pressure to always be “on”?

No, as evidence by my short, curt, unfunny answer to you.

One of the few Adam Carolla podcast episodes I missed; glad to see it uploaded. Beginning to feel like you get a better grasp of a conversation with a video podcast.

And, I’ve only gotten a chance to hear Sasha Grey be interviewed one time before on The Champs (Neal Brennan, Moshe Kasher, and DJ Dougpound’s podcast) and she comes off pretty cool.

Adam Carolla wants “Big Brother” to know he’s fine with them listening to his cell phone conversations. The comedian and popular podcast host laid out his views Friday in light of the ongoing Boston Marathon bombing investigation. “Big Brother doesn’t give a fuck about me and my cell phone conversations,” Carolla said, and he thinks anyone else who’s abiding the law should feel the same way.

Speaking about the Boston suspects and what authorities could have done to prevent last month’s attack, Carolla said, “If you’re involved with this, and you’re going to the mosque, and you’re preaching radical shit, and you’ve got a YouTube channel devoted to blowing stuff up, then we need to look at you.” He said when civil libertarians start warning about “Big Brother” and its increased power after events like this, he likes to remind them what would happen if the government was listening to his cell phone calls.

“All I do is complain about shit and I don’t talk about anything,” he said. “And Big Brother doesn’t give a fuck about my cell phone conversations, because it’s just me talking about cars and complaining about asshole producers I have to work with.” He joked, “It’s rarely speaking about jihad.”

Carolla concluded his point by saying, “if you’re going through your life, and you’re paying your taxes… and you’re not robbing anybody, then the camera’s your friend.” It’s an argument often made by proponents of increased surveillance, and one often challenged by those who, for what ever reason, don’t want to be watched.
