Show Summary

Adam opens the show with Jimmy Kimmel in studio along with the rest of the gang. Adam and Jimmy recall their early radio show days together, and Jimmy talks about all the various gigs he was fired from over the years. They also discuss the origins of Mr. Birchum, and why Adam’s kids will never be satisfied. Later, Jimmy makes fun of Adam for finally learning how to read and write, and Adam discusses some of his Urban Dictionary submissions. After the break, Adam and Jimmy tell a story from a big bachelor party in Mexico. Adam also talks to Jimmy about his love of prank phone calls, and whether or not he feels he’s gotten better at comedy over the years. News stories include events surrounding Obama’s inauguration, Manti Te’o’s upcoming interview with Katie Couric, and a library in Australia moving Lance Armstrong books to the Fiction section. As the show wraps up, the guys discuss the redesign of Hooters and ‘Christmastime in the LBC’.
