Storyline

Adam Corolla is known as a radio and television personality. He has also spent several years working in the construction industry. The Adam Corolla Project is his attempt to take a house in Los Angeles, gut it down to the support beams and rebuild it, selling it for over a million. He finds his father is selling Adam's childhood home and he buys the house and brings in his crew. He describes them as "good workers, but they need supervision." Adam, however only stops by an hour or so a day and then goes off to his radio program. Lunch seems to be the crew's primary focus. Each new feature must be approved by the city inspector and seem to be approved on the first inspection. There are guest appearances by Jimmy Kimmel and Kathy Griffin and the work continues to fall behind schedule. Toward the end, Adam brings in a foreman and puts on his own tool belt to finish the house. Then the real estate saleswoman enters. "You talk to the camera, let me sell the house," is her attitude. Many of ... Written by John Vogel {jlvogel@comcast.net}

Unashamed, unselfconscious and hilarious!
2 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I got into this show while hanging out with my fire chief, handyman brother in-law ('nuff said on hitting a target audience!) He loves it so much he's dvr'd the whole season and it ended up sucking me in too. It's not so much a "how to" show as it's "watch these idiots (meant fondly) do a days work." When I think about reality TV and what it's done to people, seems to me some folks go through life as if they are starring in their own reality show. They look at the world through the screen of their smartphones, disassociated, uninvolved, cynical... symptoms of a post-reality TV mindset. I don't get that strange ugly effect from The Adam Carolla Project. I don't get the same "phoniness." Don't get it twisted, I understand the artifice that's inherent in cutting together this genre (I saw a thing on cable about it) yet the crew is authentically dysfunctional, distracted, dense, lazy and funny as heck. I hope Adam Carolla cops another house. I may renew my cable (or I could wait 'til I'm back with my sister and her husband and watch it one shot!)
