Adam Carolla LIVE at Cobb's Comedy Club in San Francisco

Adam Carolla performed at Cobb's Comedy Club in San Francisco last night.

After Adam Carolla's radio show was canceled in February 2009, he began podcasting, which has been quite a huge success in the podcast arena.

According to Wikipedia, during its debut week, the Adam Carolla podcast recorded 1.6 million downloads and 2.4 million downloads in its second week. By the third podcast it was the number one podcast on iTunes in both the U.S. and Canada. Just goes to show the loyalty of his fans and what they are willing to do to listen to his comedic rants. His podcasts consists of interviews with writers, comedians, successful entrepreneurs and celebrities from A-Z lists (my favorite being the dreamy Alec Baldwin). He also interjects self-deprecating humor and complains about pretty much everything and anything. What started off as an experiment in new media has developed and expanded into a huge success, while capturing an extremely loyal and dedicated fan base.

In an effort to make some sort of income, Adam started touring and doing LIVE shows, which is why the guys and I decided to check out his show at Cobb's Comedy Club in San Francisco to show our support. Adam did three back-to-back shows, which left him pretty exhausted by the third set, understandably so. He kicked off the set with his signature bit, What can't Adam complain about?, and continued with a clip from The Man Show and a surprise appearance from Steve Wozniak, one of Apple's co-founders, who just happened to be sitting in the crowd. All-in-all, the show was great and we remain loyal fans and wish him and his team the best of luck in this venture.

Steve Wozniak presented perforated $2 dollar bills to the audience, which Juan was lucky enough to get signed by Steve Wozniak and Adam Carolla.

Get it on, got to get it on, got no choice but to get it on, mandate get it on!
