Adam Carolla is one of the most versatile men in Hollywood. After cutbacks forced Adam to quit his syndicated self-titled "Adam Carolla Show" broadcast on CBS radio, Adam started "The Adam Carolla Show" podcast with only a computer and a microphone from his home office in February 2009. In May 2011, "The Adam Carolla Show" was awarded Most Downloaded Podcast in the World by the official Guinness World Records.
Following brief stints as a skilled carpenter and boxing trainer, Carolla 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. Adam also co-created and starred in two hit Comedy Central shows, "The Man Show" and "Crank Yankers".
