It’s been an incredibly busy summer here at London Real, there’s so much happening right now and at the same time, we’ve had the pleasure of welcoming some fantastic guests to the studio.
Earlier this week David Icke dropped by for a chat and judging by the number of people who streamed the episode his timing was, as always, perfect. Yesterday my good friend Dr Shawn Baker was here, while I’ve also spoken to Jim Rickards, Robert Kiyosaki, Dan Bilzerian and many more, but, there’s one thing all of these people have in common – they believe passionately in the right to free speech, and are happy to stand behind their opinions no matter what the cost.
I believe it was George Washington who once said,
“If freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.”
At London Real, we’ve been banging this drum for a long time, but it’s because we care about democratising information and allowing people access to differing opinions, so in the end, we can go some way to transforming society and creating a harmonious environment where people share ideas and help each other.
Today’s guest is someone who himself articulates many of these same values and I’ve been keen to get him on the show for some time now. You see as crazy as the world can often appear, sometimes we all just need a good laugh – to laugh at the absurdity of it all – there’s no harm in that, right? Wrong!
Adam Carolla is an American comedian, radio personality, television host, actor, podcaster, director and bestselling author. He is likely best known as the host of The Adam Carolla Show podcast, becoming an early pioneer of the format. It quickly became the Number 1 podcast on iTunes and subsequently broke the Guinness World Record for the most downloaded podcast of all time with almost 60 million unique downloads, with the very first episode being downloaded 250,000 times in the first 24 hours.
Before this Adam co-hosted the hugely popular phone-in show Loveline, which later successfully moved to television on MTV. He was also the co-host and co-creator of the television program The Man Show and the co-creator and a regular performer on Crank Yankers,
A host of entertaining television projects followed and as his stock rose Adam appeared on Dancing With The Stars and The Celebrity Apprentice. But it is as an author that many feel Adam has found the perfect climate for his quick-witted, often abrasive, no holds barred brand of comedy.
His first book, In Fifty Years We’ll All Be Chicks… And Other Complaints from an Angry Middle-Aged White Guy debuted on The New York Times Best Seller list in 2010, and 5 books have followed since.
Adam’s latest offering, Everything Reminds Me of Something, is exactly the antidote we need to the overly politically correct times in which we now live. It is Adam’s disregard for these virtue signalling, censorship-laden, woke times that mean his voice has resonated with so many for so long.
Adam has also starred in, produced and directed numerous films, including No Safe Spaces that he made with Dennis Prager, examining the suppression of free speech in the politically correct world of academia, which Adam says is a “wake-up call” to the people of America.
As a comedian, Adam feels very strongly that cancel culture will spell the end for comedy and, more importantly, creativity – a conversation I held not long ago with the beloved British comedian, John Cleese.
I’m looking forward to tackling this and some of the most important issues of our time. Adam is a no-nonsense, straight shooter, who believes passionately in everyone’s right to defend their beliefs, even if they’re wrong, which is fine because Adam will likely tell them that also.
