The Grapes of Rad #176: James Adomian

Aaron got to talk to comedian and super-talent James Adomian (Earwolf, UCB, Last Comic Standing) before his recent Seattle performance. Aaron and James are also joined by Gary Busey, Paul Giamatti, Lewis Black, John Noble and Jesse Ventura.

Topics include: The Listener joined us for roller derby last weekend, “dude(‘s room) looks like a lady(‘s room),” supporting live comedy, James just recorded his first live album in Portland (the first release from Earwolf’s new label), bracing one’s insanity, making the country fat & shitty, dealing with the “other America,” how James does impressions, overdoing it on the hummus, Listener Tiff’s snobby baby, and more!

I also love James as Sam Elliot in an ad for hipster beer. I couldn’t embed it, but the video is right here on UCB’s website.
