On the road with Carolla
After his CBS radio show ended, Adam Carolla started “The Adam Carolla Podcast” with only a computer and microphone from his home office in 2009. Since that start, Carolla’s show is receiving more than 25 million downloads a month and prompted the launch of the online network Carolla Digital. After a successful crowdsourcing effort, Carolla has written, produced, directed and is starring in his new film “Road Hard.” The semiautobiographical look at life on the road for a comic will be shown Friday at The Neptune Theatre, 1303 NE 45th St., Seattle. The 7 p.m. show is sold out, according to adamcarolla.com, but there also is a 10 p.m. showing. A Q&A with Carolla will follow both shows. Tickets are $25-$30 plus service fees and are available at stgpresents.org.
