Adam Carolla is the “funny guy” behind Westwood One’s Loveline. Adam Carolla and co-host Dr. Drew Pinsky dispense their original style of humor and advice on love, romance and relationships.
In December 1996, Carolla and his co-host, Dr. Drew Pinsky, took their successful radio program to MTV and last year they published their advice on a myriad of subjects in their first book entitled The Dr. Drew and Adam Book: A Survival Guide to Life and Love. Adam Carolla can also be seen on Comedy Central’s The Man Show, with Jimmy Kimmel of Win Ben Stein’s Money.

His father is a psychologist, and his 82-year-old grandmother is a sex therapist. To perfect his timing, Carolla spent years training with the famous Groundling's and ACME Improv groups in Los Angeles. He also spent considerable time on the boards as a stand-up comedian.
An experienced carpenter and boxing instructor, Carolla developed the character “Mr. Birchum, the Shop Teacher,” which he brought to the KROQ-FM morning show in Los Angeles. It was Carolla’s appearances on KROQ’s morning show that caught the attention of Dr. Drew and the station brass who brought him onto Loveline to add a few laughs. Things worked out great, so they decided to bring him on as a regular host.
Raised in North Hollywood, Carolla enjoys sports and is an accomplished writer. He also loves anything done by Aaron Spelling and believes the best-written show on the air is The Simpsons.
Carolla has a simple philosophy: “Figure out what you wanna do, then take a nap.”
