Have you noticed lately that Adam Carolla’s podcast is starting to sound more and more like a right-wing talk radio show? Someone else apparently did too, because the comedian has signed on to become a contributor on Fox News Channel, the Hollywood Reporter said.
Carolla will appear weekly on The O’Reilly Factor, as well as other shows on the network. The comedian, who has both launched a successful podcast network and written two bestselling books in the last couple of years, is following in the footsteps of Dennis Miller, another longtime comic who had a mid-career conversion to political conservatism. Miller also appears weekly on Bill O’Reilly’s show.
Regardless, it’s unlikely that Carolla will become nearly as ubiquitous on TV as his former radio partner Dr. Drew.
