Contest has ended and winner has been contacted. Thanks for entering.
Adam Carolla is much more than just a guy whose last name shares a pronunciation with the best selling automobile model of all time; he’s actually racked up quite a few accolades in his own right. At the top of this list of achievements is breaking the Guinness World Record for the most downloaded podcast by reaching nearly 60 million unique downloads from 2009 – ’11. While dealing with the free-form structure of a podcast, Adam has, undoubtedly, benefited from his time spent studying with with the legendary Los Angeles improv comedy troupe, the Groundlings, and at the Acme Comedy Theatre in the early ’90s. That live comedy experience should also come in handy as he takes his act on the road for a pair of live podcast tapings at Seattle‘s Neptune Theatre next Saturday, October 12th. The host will be recording 2 separate shows–one at 7pm and another at 9:30–with each podcast being “a unique episode with different bits and different guests!” Thanks to our friends at the Seattle Theatre Group, we’ve been offered the opportunity to give one of you jokers a pair of passes to the 9:30 taping for free.
