Adam Carolla’s “Not Taco Bell Material” Book Party and Webinar

Carolines on Broadway hosted a book party and webinar to celebrate the release of best-selling author Adam Carolla’s new book, “Not Taco Bell Material,” on Tuesday. Carolla and special guest Artie Lange graced the Carolines stage for the event, and will do so again during live tapings of “The Adam Carolla Show” podcast this weekend. The two will pair up again on Friday with additional guests for the weekend of performances including comedian Todd Barry, “The Daily Show” correspondent Wyatt Cenac, and legendary comedian David Alan Grier who is currently starring in and was recently nominated for a Tony Award for his performance in “Porgy and Bess.”

From the moment Carolla entered on Thursday, his personality filled the room. He was greeted by roaring fans and high fives, along with clinking bottles and laughter. He opened by regaling the crowd with “the Richard Gere gerbil story.” Plus, who doesn’t love to hear someone else complain? From Wendy Williams to the pointlessness of daily holidays like “Skunk Day,” Carolla projected his witty and often cynical opinion on a plethora of subjects throughout the night.

Carolla has focused his energies on becoming a pioneer in the podcast world. In 2009 Carolla stole the title of most downloaded podcast from the previous record holder, Ricky Gervais. His podcast is now the most downloaded on iTunes, a title it earned only days after its creation.

In 2010, Carolla’s book, “In Fifty Years We’ll All Be Chicks” debuted on the New York Times best seller list, and Carolla hopes for similar success with his most recent book. His new book deals with the trials and tribulations that Adam encountered growing up without money or a stable family, and takes the reader on a journey through his tumultuous youth through the plethora of “dumps” he resided in throughout his early years. The comedic anecdotes presented by Carolla are bittersweet; his current success is not isolated from his difficult beginnings. His accomplishments come from his own perseverance and an innate sense of humor that he maintained throughout his difficult childhood. However, knowing that his ending is a happy one, this book can be read through a comedic lens and you will be left laughing along with Adam as he takes you through his upbringing. For those who are not already subscribing to Adam Carolla’s podcast, it can be found on iTunes. His new book “Not Taco Bell Material” is also out now, so be sure to pick up a copy!
