Steve Duffy: How did you get into comedy? What was its attraction for you?
Adam Carolla: I started doing comedy when I met Jimmy Kimmel. I was a boxing coach at the time and he was working at a radio station. I was going to be his coach for a stunt and it just took off after that.
SD: You’ve done radio, television, movies, and now you have your podcast show – which one is your favorite?
AC: The podcast is my favorite, because it is the purist form of me.
SD: You have been known to be outspoken and controversial at times. Was that always the plan?
AC: I don’t have a plan. I just talk and tell the truth and at times people tend to freak out over what I have said. I’m not looking to be controversial; I’m just looking to be honest.
SD: What makes the chemistry between you and Dr. Drew so great?
AC: He is really a smart guy and he likes to listen. We are both interested in people and how they work.
SD: At this show, the audience will be able to taste your new wine called Mangria. What can you tell us about it?
AC: It’s my signature cocktail. It’s a high testosterone Sangria. It’s really good and I probably like it way too much. Just make sure you bring a designated driver.
