Adam Carolla is coming to a town near you. The former “Loveline” host is taking his show on the road for the holidays. The “Adam Carolla Hates the Holidays” tour will start tomorrow in Michigan and will end in February in California.
Carolla announced the tour shortly after one of his podcasts, where he rants about the Occupy protests, went viral. Carolla, who has earned his living by giving his frank opinion on everything from sex, to cars, to politics, says that the Occupy Movement is the product of participation medals.
According to Mediate, Carolla believes that the people at the occupy protests aren’t burnt out from corporate greed, they’re just part of a culture of entitlement (they live in a snow globe) that doesn’t understand that they have to work to get paid.
In a lengthy rant, Carolla says:
“We’ve created a bunch of self-entitled monsters… ‘I want my Most Valuable Player trophy.’ ‘Well, you’re the slowest, fattest guy on the team….’ Everyone gets involved and everyone gives everyone a participation trophy and then everyone feels good about themselves but it’s not based on anything. You should feel good about yourself because of your accomplishments. And, when these people become adults and enter the work force… self-entitled pricks who think the world owes them a living.”

But Carolla said he isn’t going on tour to preach about his views on the Occupy Movement. Nope, he’s going on tour for money.
When asked why he decided to bring his hugely popular podcast (it holds the Guinness World Record for most downloads) on the road, Carolla told the Denver Post:
“To make money, pretty much. For a guy who’s worked at real jobs that are actually hard, coming to a town and going to theater is just awesome and easy.”
