As co-star of The Car Show, Adam Carolla brings to the table the many talents that have made him one of the most versatile men in Hollywood. Adam became a household name for his hilarious antics on The Man Show, his snappy radio commentary on Loveline and CBS radio’s The Adam Carolla Show, his award-winning daily podcast, The Adam Carolla Show, and his New York Times best-seller, In 50 Years We’ll All Be Chicks. Now, Adam shares his enthusiasm for all things automotive with that quick-witted style that fans have come to know and love.
Automotive Journalist Dan Neil will contribute a lifetime of car knowledge as co-host of The Car Show. His work for The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, LA Times, AutoWeek, and Car and Driver established him as one of the most respected journalists to cover the car scene. In 1999, he earned the International Motor Press Association Award for automotive journalism, and in 2004 he won the Pulitzer Prize for Criticism for his LA Times column, Rumble Seat.
John “Spider” Salley
While an ex-NBA star may not seem the obvious choice as co-host for The Car Show, John “Spider” Salley has proven he has what it takes to keep audiences entertained. His easy-going charm, quick wit and on-camera ease make him the perfect match for his car-savvy co-hosts. Salley’s list of post-pro-sports accomplishments includes scoring roles in major motion pictures (Bad Boys, Eddie, Confessions of a Shopaholic, Black Dynamite), and proving himself a slam-dunk as host of a variety of TV programs (Basketball Wives, The Best Damn Sports Show Period, The John Salley Block Party). Numerous reality-show appearances have cemented his status as a popular TV personality.
The road that led Matt Farah to the co-host seat for The Car Show is paved with tire-smoking, gear-banging, red-lining test drives. When Farah began producing automotive web programs, he was new to the world of video journalism. His main qualification was a consuming interest in cars. Add to that his on-camera energy and no-holds-barred honesty, and it’s easy to see why his internet shows, Garage 419 and TheSmokingTire.com, have enjoyed such great success.
