The Adam And Drew Reunion Tour: Starring Dr. Drew And Adam Carolla
At first, it seemed like a mismatch: Dr. Drew Pinsky, a board certified internist, addiction medicine specialist, and Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, paired with Adam Carolla, a sarcastic, salt-of-the-earth guy's guy with a background as a carpenter and comedian. Yet when this unlikely duo took to the airwaves on MTV's Loveline in 1995, the mix of Pinsky's clinical expertise and Carolla's snarky straight-talk generated a chemistry that made them the Laurel and Hardy of romantic advice. Since then, Drew has gone on to appear in a series of reality shows, including Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew and Sex Rehab with Dr. Drew, while Adam has become a best-selling author and star of the The Adam Carolla Show, which made the Guinness Book of World Records as the most downloaded podcast in the world.
That straight man vs. comic foil balance is still apparent as Dr. Drew and Adam take to the road on their latest reunion tour. In a show loaded with anecdotes and tall tales, the two personalities entertain crowds as they dish out commentary about contemporary mores. Keeping in the tradition of Loveline, the performance also addresses questions from the audiences, in which bawdy and personal subjects get the Adam and Drew treatment.
