Biography

Adam Carolla (b. May 27, 1964) is an American comedian, comedy writer, radio personality, television personality and actor. Carolla achieved fame for several broadcast stints: Co-host of the radio show Loveline, from 1995 to 2005 (and its television incarnation on MTV from 1996 to 2000); co-creator and co-star of the television program The Man Show (1999-2004); co-creator and performer on the television program Crank Yankers (2002-present).

Carolla attended Colfax Elementary School, Walter Reed Junior High, and North Hollywood High School, where in the latter of which he was voted class clown and was the captain of his football team. Carolla played Pop Warner football for many years, and said being involved in it saved him from a chaotic home life. On The Adam Carolla Show, Carolla said he was recruited to play football at Marshall University, but he was not interested in college.

Carolla frequently tells stories of pranks he and his friends pulled during and after high school. He began living on his own at the age of 18 in an apartment that eventually included uncaged rabbits. He briefly attended Los Angeles Valley College, a junior college, where he was placed on academic probation before dropping out to work in a series of jobs, including a carpet cleaner , carpenter, traffic school instructor, metal worker and boxing instructor. In his 20s, he dated a British woman who was a stripper. He also taught himself how to ride a unicycle, which he has ridden during an episode of Too Late With Adam Carolla and as a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Carolla is considered to be an accomplished satirist and comedian in several formats. He has co-created, written for, and featured in several talk radio programs, television series, and films.

On August 4, 2005, Carolla announced that he would leave Loveline to pursue a position in morning radio, replacing Howard Stern -- with Stern's approval -- in a number of West Coast markets. Adam's last night on Loveline was November 3, 2005, to allow him to have time to prepare for his morning debut at the beginning of 2006. He stated that he would love to continue to do Loveline, which seemed to fly by while doing it, but the show would not be a possibility. On October 25, Infinity Broadcasting officially announced that it would be replacing Stern with Carolla on several radio stations in the western United States.

The show's staff was modified slightly during its first year. At the start of 2007, it saw its largest staff change; the three primary on-air personalities would be Carolla himself, Teresa Strasser, and the newly added Danny Bonaduce.

Over the course of the year Adam Carolla has seen a change in the affiliates that carry his show. This list of affiliates and cities are :

During the week of June 25, 2007 on The Adam Carolla Show, Carolla mused -- during a news segment discussing Coulter's recent controversial statements regarding John Edwards -- that he himself had, to his surprise, become a "cult hero" for hanging up on her on his radio program one year earlier. Carolla joked that his "cult hero" status was probably more due to the public's dislike of Coulter than it was owed to public approval of himself.

Carolla married his longtime girlfriend Lynette Paradise on September 28, 2002. Lynette gave birth (via cesarean section) to their first children, twins Natalia and Santino "Sonny" Carolla on June 7, 2006. .
