SAN ANTONIO - Adam Carolla is coming to the Empire Theatre on July 13th at 8:00 pm.
Carolla is one of the most versatile men in Hollywood. After cutbacks forced Carolla to quit his syndicated “Adam Carolla Show” broadcast on CBS radio, Carolla started “The Adam Carolla Podcast” with only a computer and a microphone from his home office in Feb. 2009. In May 2011, ‘The Adam Carolla Show’ was awarded ‘Most Downloaded Podcast in the World’ by the official Guinness Book of World Records.
In 2010, Carolla also added New York Times Bestseller to his resume with his collection of rants, ‘In 50 Years We’ll All Be Chicks’. A self proclaimed “illiterate”, Carolla is already at work on his much anticipated second book with Crown Publishing, due in Spring 2012.
Carolla wrote, co-produced and starred in the independent boxing feature film ‘The Hammer’. ‘The Hammer’ made its world premiere at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival in New York. Carolla was also seen as a contestant on ABC’s hit reality series “Dancing with the Stars.” Carolla hosted Comedy Central's "Too Late with Adam Carolla" and starred in TLC's "The Adam Carolla Project," which chronicled the renovation and sale of his boyhood home.
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” 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” (2002-2007). 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 was recently seen living out his childhood dream hosting SPEED Channel’s “The Car Show”, and was a contestant on last season’s Celebrity Apprentice.
