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.

Carolla can also be seen living out his childhood dream hosting Speed Channel's "The Car Show."

In 2010, Adam also added New York Times Best Seller to his resume with his collection of rants, "In 50 Years We'll All Be Chicks." Carolla is currently at work on his much-anticipated second book with Crown Publishing, due spring 2012.

Before running his own online empire, ACE broadcasting, out of a garage in Glendale, 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.

Carolla wrote, co-produced and starred in the independent boxing feature film "The Hammer," which made its world premiere at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival in New York. Additionally, Carolla has hosted Comedy Central's "Too Late with Adam Carolla" and starred in TLC's "The Adam Carolla Project," which chronicled the renovation and subsequent sale of his boyhood home.

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 (1996-2000). The duo also authored "The Dr. Drew and Adam Book: A Survival Guide to Life and Love."



With their partner Daniel Kellison, Carolla and Kimmel are the heads of Jackhole Industries and have created and starred in two hit Comedy Central shows, "The Man Show" (1999-2003) and "Crank Yankers" (2002-present). Jackhole Industries also executive produced "Gerhard Reinke's Wanderlust," a comedy travel show, which aired on Comedy Central, and a reality-based feature film, "Windy City Heat," which won The Comedia Award for Best Film at the 2004 Montreal Just for Laughs comedy festival.

In 2008, Carolla competed as a contestant on ABC's hit reality series "Dancing with the Stars." A huge car fanatic, Adam has participated in the Toyota Grand Prix Celebrity Race and the Concours d'Elegance for the last several years. A native of Southern California, Carolla currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife, Lynette, and their twins.
