It was in 1998 when a caller to the popular sex-advice radio show Loveline
asked what sort of measures might be appropriate to help curb teenage pregnancy. What followed was an eight-minute rant about absent fathers, daughters in need of attention, and unsupportive boyfriends—as well as murdered liquor store owners, prison structure, deadbeat carpenters, welfare, city permits and Joseph Stalin. In other words, what followed was classic Adam Carolla
, the hard-talking former construction-worker-turned-comedian. Carolla never censors himself, so bring your game face when he appears Saturday, June 2, at the Uptown Theatre. 1350 Third St., Napa. 7pm. $40. 707.259.0123.
