Adam Carolla: comedian, angry, middle-aged, white guy, and social commentator

Adam Carolla shares his thoughts on the direction American society is taking, as well as anecdotes from his life, and complaints on everything from animals to bathroom etiquette.

Why should a rough, tough, bearded man clearly old enough to drink be asked for ID at a bar? And why did public schools decide to remove the climbing rope from gym class? Famed radio host, actor, and angry man extraordinaire Adam Carolla asks these questions and more in his new book, In Fifty Years We’ll All Be Chicks. Carolla rips into the absurdities of American culture, hilariously commenting on our society’s uncanny knack for taking once simple things and turning them into huge ordeals and litigious fights. “What we used to settle with common senses or a fist, we now settle with hand sanitizer and lawyers,” Carolla observes. And when he’s not complaining, he gives readers a glimpse into his personal life, from football Sundays at Jimmy Kimmel’s to making it big and raising his children in such an absurd atmosphere. Adam Carolla stops by the studio to vent to Patt. Don’t even get him started on the traffic he sat in to get here...

Guest:

Adam Carolla, radio and television host, comedian, and actor; host of the Adam Carolla Podcast and author of In Fifty Years, We'll All Be Chicks: ...and Other Complaints from an Angry Middle-Aged White Guy
