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 CATCH A CONTRACTOR. His latest book, President Me, was released this Spring from Harper Collins Publishing and debuted #8 on the NY Times Best Seller List.
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 Eight 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 entire online network known as Carolla Digital in February 2010, which produces many of iTunes' top podcast programming.
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 and remains there today. His e-book, Rich Man Poor Man, is available on iTunes.
Before running his online empire, Adam hosted The Adam Carolla Show on CBS radio stations in Los Angeles, Portland and Las Vegas. The four-hour weekday morning program was syndicated in several major markets, including Seattle, Sacramento and Fresno.
Adam wrote, co-produced and starred in the independent boxing feature film, The Hammer, which world premiered at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival in New York.
Adam also starred on ABC's hit reality series Dancing with the Stars, 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, Adam 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. He eventually joined the show's repertoire as “Mr. Birchum,” a wood shop teacher. Adam’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 Adam and Dr. Drew for five seasons (1996-2000). The duo also authored The Dr. Drew and Adam Book: A Survival Guide to Life and Love.
Adam has had a busy 2014, producing and directing two projects, Winning: The Racing Life of Paul Newman, a documentary chronicling the 35 year racing career of Paul Newman and Road Hard, a feature film about the difficulty of life on the road for a stand up comedian, which he also starred in.
A native of Southern California, Adam currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife, Lynette, and their twins.
