Adam Carolla (born May 27, 1964) is an American radio personality, television host, comedian, writer, and actor. He is currently the host of The Adam Carolla Show, a talk show distributed as a podcast.

Carolla is also known as being the co-host of the radio show Loveline from 1995 to 2005 (and its television incarnation on MTV from 1996 to 2000), as the co-host of the television program The Man Show (1999–2004), and as the co-creator and performer on the television program Crank Yankers (2002–2007).

Carolla has been featured in television shows, talk radio shows, films (appearing in both independent films as well as those of the major film studios), Internet media, podcasts, and other media outlets.

In November 2010 Carolla released a book entitled In Fifty Years We'll All Be Chicks that debuted on the New York Times Best Seller List for hardcover non-fiction during its first week of release.


Early life

Carolla was born in Los Angeles, California[3][4][5][6] to an Italian-American father, Jim Carolla, a psychologist; and his mother, Kris (née Novello), a perpetually out-of-work welfare recipient with a degree in Chicano studies.[7] Adam's parents did not give him a middle name.[8] As a joke, he wrote "Adam Lakers Carolla" on his driver's license application.[9] His driver's license still gives his full name as "Adam Lakers Carolla."[9]
