ADAM CAROLLA is best known as a comedian, actor, radio personality, television host and NY Times best-selling author. He currently hosts THE ADAM CAROLLA SHOW, which holds the Guinness Book of World Records for “most downloaded podcast,” and stars on Spike TV’s ADAM CAROLLA AND FRIENDS BUILD STUFF LIVE. His latest book, DADDY STOP TALKING, was released May 2015 from Harper Collins Publishing.
Adam started THE ADAM CAROLLA SHOW podcast with only a computer and a microphone from his home office in Feb. 2009. The podcast now receives more than 30 million downloads a month and has been featured in Fast Company Magazine, Entrepreneur, The New York Times and The Los Angeles Times. His immediate success prompted Adam to launch an online network known as Carolla Digital in February 2010, which produces many of iTunes’ top podcast programming. Currently, Carolla’s digital network is in partnership with PodcastOne, the nation’s largest advertiser-supported podcast network, for which Adam was featured in a Forbes Magazine spread. The podcast is available at AdamCarolla.com, PodcastOne.com and iTunes.
Adam became a New York Times best-selling author when his book, IN 50 YEARS WE’LL ALL BE CHICKS, topped the charts for ten weeks. The audio version went straight to the #1 position on iTunes. He has since released two other New York Times Best Selling Books, NOT TACO BELL MATERIAL and PRESIDENT ME.
Adam began his career on the nationally syndicated radio program LOVELINE with Dr. Drew Pinsky. MTV developed a television version of the show, which was co-hosted by Adam and Dr. Drew for five seasons (1996-2000).
With his partner Daniel Kellison, and Jimmy Kimmel, Adam created and starred in two hit Comedy Central shows, THE MAN SHOW (1999-2003) and CRANK YANKERS (2002‐2005).
Adam also recently completed two feature length films: ROAD HARD, a crowd-funded comedy that raised over a million dollars in a single month, and the inspirational documentary WINNING: THE RACING LIFE OF PAUL NEWMAN. Both films are now available on disc and VOD.
A native of Southern California, Adam currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife, Lynette, and their twins.
