Adam Carolla          

Comedian, Entrepreneur and Host of "The Adam Carolla Radio Show"

Adam Carolla is one of the most versatile men in Hollywood. He hosts “The Adam Carolla Show,” a talk show distributed as a podcast which set the record as the "most downloaded podcast" as judged by Guinness World Records.

Following brief stints as a skilled carpenter and boxing trainer, he began his career in radio after answering an ad seeking a boxing instructor to train then radio personality Jimmy Kimmel of KROQ's "Kevin and Bean Show" in Los Angeles. He eventually joined the show's repertoire as Mr. Birchum, a woodshop teacher. Carolla's success on KROQ led to a hosting job on the nationally syndicated radio program "Loveline," with Dr. Drew Pinsky. MTV developed a television version of the show, which was co-hosted by Carolla and Pinsky for five seasons (1996-2000). The duo also authored “The Dr. Drew and Adam Book: A Survival Guide to Life and Love.”

With their partner Daniel Kellison, Carolla and Kimmel are the heads of Jackhole Industries and have created and starred in two hit Comedy Central shows, “The Man Show” (1999-2003) and “Crank Yankers” (2002-present). Jackhole Industries also executive produced Gerhard Reinke's “Wanderlust,” a comedy travel show which aired on Comedy Central, and a reality-based feature film, “Windy City Heat,” which won The Comedia Award for Best Film at the 2004 Montreal Just For Laughs comedy festival.

Carolla is also a writer, producer and director. He wrote and stared in the 2007 cult film, “The Hammer” and “Road Hard” and “Winning: The Racing Life of Paul Newman” both released in 2014.

The comediane has appeared on several reality shows including, “Dancing with the Stars,” “The Celebrity Apprentice” and hosting “Catch a Contractor.”

His book, “In Fifty Years We'll All Be Chicks,” debuted on The New York Times Best Seller list in 2010, and his second book “Not Taco Bell Material” also reached New York Times bestseller status and received widespread acclaim for its cutting social commentary and humor.

Carolla turned his love of red wine into a successful business with Mangria, his version of sangria. With Carolla’s hands-on approach to business, Mangria has become a sort of phenomenon.
