Panelist, "The Marriage Ref"
Adam Carolla is a comedian, entertainer, and radio and television host. Born in Pennsylvania, Carolla was raised in the San Fernando Valley, where he attended North Hollywood High School and Los Angeles Valley College. He was a standout athlete. While pursuing his lifelong goal of a career in comedy, Carolla supported himself with odd jobs, including stints as a construction worker, carpet cleaner, and driving instructor. His ability to teach boxing led to an apocryphal meeting with morning radio personality Jimmy Kimmel. The two quickly hit it off, and Carolla soon became a regular presence on KROQ's morning show. Dr. Drew Pinsky selected Carolla as co-host for his national call-in radio show "Loveline." The show was adapted for television and enjoyed a five-season run on MTV.
Carolla and Jimmy Kimmel went on to co-create and host "The Man Show" and develop "Crank Yankers" for Comedy Central. Carolla returned to radio in 2006 with "The Adam Carolla Show," replacing Howard Stern on many stations. In 2008, Carolla appeared as a contestant on ABC's "Dancing with the Stars." In the same year he also wrote, produced and starred in the award-winning indie film "The Hammer."
Carolla currently hosts a pair of podcasts, and is finishing a TV pilot for the fall season. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two children.
