It’s been a rough month for Adam Carolla. Ever since a New York Post article ran in June that made his feelings about women in comedy painfully clear, the veteran radio and TV personality, prolific podcaster and best-selling memoirist has been heavily criticized.
But on Saturday night at the UB Center for the Arts, Carolla let the incident lie, preferring to give the thoroughly supportive crowd a healthy dose of his uncompromising, “hyper-vigilant” style of comedy. It was probably a smart decision, seeing how ridiculous and indefensible his Post comments were, and how light and digestible his actual material tends to be.
His set began in a Kathy Griffin-like Hollywood storytelling mold, with Carolla outlining a gaffe he made while appearing on The Tonight Show a few weeks back, complete with video replay. His unintentionally offensive remark involved Queen Latifah, hard-to-open toy packaging and a certain construction tool, and his retelling of his own embarrassment was both funny and rather charming.
