Comedian Adam Carolla will bring his unique brand of humor to the Monterey Peninsula Friday, August 17 in a special performance. Carolla returns to Monterey to compete in the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
Carolla may be best known for creating and hosting “The Man Show,” but he is also an avid sports car enthusiast, recently hosting The Car Show on Speed TV and is the current host of Carcast, a weekly podcast that covers everything from hot rods to super cars and The Adam Carolla Show, which holds the Guinness Book of World Records title for most downloaded podcast of all time. Additionally, he was a contestant on NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice and his latest book, Not Taco Bell Material, will be released June 12.
The Sunset Center in Carmel will be the stage for Carolla’s live show Friday August 17 at 8 p.m. A special package that includes a ticket to the show and a two-day pass to the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion is only available in person at the Sunset Center Theater box office for $150, a savings of $25.
The Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, August 17-19 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, celebrates the life of Carroll Shelby, 1923-2012, and honors the 50th anniversary of the iconic Shelby Cobra with a variety of activities. Carolla will be driving two of his cars this year, a 1970 Datsun 510 and 1974 Datsun 260Z, racing on both Saturday August 18 and Sunday August 19. In last year’s race, Carolla was awarded a Rolex Trophy for his driving performance.
