There’s no shortage today of Adam Carolla news, thanks to a bit last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live as an LA Kings bandwagon fan and the subsequent accidental tripping of a panic alarm at his Hollywood Hills home.
FishbowlLA prefers to focus on the New York Times write-up about Carolla’s forthcoming book. Cleverly, the comedian anchors each of the 16 chapters around the successive San Fernando Valley area homes he spent time in while growing up and pursuing a now very successful show business career. He tells Steven Kurutz that you can tell a lot about someone by the house they live in… and the mattress they sleep on:
“My mom had the mattress on the floor. I slept with a futon on the floor. I realized the farther you get from the floor, the better you’re doing. You can actually get too high, though, and be sleeping in bunk beds.”
“I actually took a tape measure to my mattress. It was 30.6 inches off the floor, and that seemed right. Four inches higher or four inches lower wouldn’t be a good thing.”
