Carolla got where he is today by working first, as a carpenter and builder, and also being a boxing trainer in his spare time. Carolla became familiar with comedy and got his start in comedy with The Groundlings, an improv group, which produced many other famous comedians. As luck would have it, Jimmy Kimmel was a participant in a boxing match at the Los Angeles radio station, KROQ, in 1994, and Carolla ended up being Kimmel's boxing trainer. So, Kimmel helped Carolla get a job on the KROQ morning radio show, called The Kevin and Bean Morning Show. It was during that time that Dr. Drew Pinsky, heard Carolla and liked his radio personality and voice.
In 1995, Dr. Drew gave Carolla the job of co-hosting the Loveline radio show with him. At the time Carolla joined Loveline, the radio show had become nationally syndicated. In 1996, Loveline became a television show on the MTV network, which was televised for four years. The Loveline show ended it's stint with MTV in 2000, and Carolla and the Loveline radio show continued on with the nightly appearances on a syndicated national radio network.
In 2005, Carolla left Loveline after 10 years, and he went on to host a new morning radio show, called The Adam Carolla Show, that he had created and developed himself. He also hosted a TLC channel television show, called The Adam Carolla Project, which focused on home improvement subjects. In 2009, the show was cancelled and he went on to do a daily podcast, from his personal website. In the same year that it was started, it was hailed by iTunes, as the Best Audio Podcast of 2009. He still hosts his own talk show on the The Adam Carolla Show podcast, which is known for being the most downloaded podcast and had set a record with Guinness World Records in 2011, as the most downloaded podcast, with close to 60 million single downloads between March 2009 and March 2011, according to Guinness World Records. At the same time, Carolla appeared on the comedy television show, called The Man Show, as a co-host with Jimmy Kimmel, which aired 1999-2003.
The Man Show was developed by two other men along with Carolla, and they were Jimmy Kimmel and Daniel Kellison, so all three of them went on to develop a production company, called Jackhole Productions. Jackhole Productions created and produced the television show, Crank Yankers, that continued to be broadcasted until 2007. Carolla also hosted a late night talk show, called The Car Show which featured car reviews and tests which were intermingled with humor, which was cancelled after one season.
Carolla, having such a uniquely distinctive voice, has also done a few voice overs for cartoons. He was the voice of Commander Nebula in the Disney series, Buzz Lightyear of Star Command; he took over the character Death on the Family Guy, from Norm MacDonald; he was also Spanky Ham on Drawn Together and Wynchell in the Disney movie, Wreck-It Ralph. Carolla had also expanded into doing film projects, and in 2006, he co-wrote, co-produced and appeared in the movie, called The Hammer, its world premiere at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival in New York, and it was released on March 21, 2008.
Carolla also directed the documentary, called Winning: The Racing Life of Paul Newman about the car racing career of Paul Newman. Carolla has also written and published many books, The Dr. Drew and Adam Book: A Survival Guide to Life and Love; also, In Fifty Years We’ll All Be Chicks… And Other Complaints from an Angry Middle-Aged White Guy, which was on the New York Times Best Seller list for several weeks; so was Not Taco Bell Material which also appeared on the New York Times Best Seller list for many weeks, as was President Me: The America That’s in My Head. Carolla's latest book is called, Daddy, Stop Talking!: And Other Things My Kids Want But Won't Be Getting.
Going in the beverage developing direction, Carolla created the wine cocktail, called Mangria, in which he went into a partnership with the Napa Valley's Patio Wine Company to commercialize the cocktail. Adam Carolla has branched out in many directions and he will probably branch out in many more to accumulate more Adam Carolla Net Worth.
