Adam Carolla & Dr. Drew Reunion Tour

It seems like there have always been people like Ann Landers and Dear Abby who are willing to dish out advice to those downtrodden enough to seek it out publicly. Then there are those who specifically choose to handle the more complicated conundrums of love and sex, like the distinguished Dr. Ruth and the beloved Dan Savage.

The duo of Adam Carolla and Dr. Drew Pinsky landed somewhere in the messy middle of that wide-ranging spectrum with the long-running show Loveline. During their 10-year hosting stint, from 1995 to 2005, the pair answered some of the oddest quasi-medical questions ever, handling delicate and oftentimes perverse issues with a combination of frat-bro humor (regularly doled out by Carolla) and practical advice patiently and sometimes sternly delivered by the far more level-headed Dr. Drew.

While these two admittedly make rather odd comedy-advice bedfellows—for instance, one has hosted a television hit appropriately titled The Man Show; the other has hosted several celebrity-rehab reality shows—both are New York Times best-selling authors. The titles of their books alone can tell you a bit about the dueling personalities that ultimately made their partnership work. For instance, Dr. Drew has penned such heady works as The Mirror Effect: How Celebrity Narcissism is Seducing America and Cracked: Putting Broken Lives Together Again. Funnyman Carolla, meanwhile, has authored such seminal titles as In 50 Years We’ll All Be Chicks and 2012’s not-to-be-missed Not Taco Bell Material. (Jacob Stringer) $30-$50
