EDIT: Did a Adam Carolla Show website redesign, check it out here!
Before the show I noticed a request on Twitter from ACS to send questions:
Coming to our Europe shows & want to give Ace a crash course in the local culture? Email firstname.lastname@example.org pic.twitter.com/siouaFEd4U— Adam Carolla Show (@AdamCarollaShow) June 26, 2016
I did, not expecting anything...
Hey Menno, Would you be willing to talk to Adam during the show? We'd give you a microphone or bring you on stage for a bit. What do you think?
Hell yes, Get It On!
I would be going to see Adam alone, my girlfiend and I just have a 5 week old son so this would actually be my first night out alone again after being buried in diapers and baby bottles...
I send out a tweet to ask other Adam fans to meetup before the show:
Meeting Adam Carolla Fans in Amsterdam before the show
The Adam Carolla Show was held at the Melkweg in Amsterdam, a great venue to go watch a show. The ACS was in a smaller room in front of around of 100 ACE Man fans.

Get It On! The show started with Adam and Giel Beelen, a Dutch DJ and presenter. Some great jokes about the Dutch vs US culture (or lack thereof) and Adam's run-in with an Amsterdam taxi driver...
In part 2 of the show Adam had a short Skype call with Chris Jericho about Donald Trump and Vince McMahon, I like Chris, but this part was not as great since the EU crouwd probably does not know a lot about wrestling or Vince McMahon...
Another part of the show was a racing video of Adam's Goodwood Hill Climb for fans who know Adam and his passion for racing it is fun to see him be excited about this, I would have preferred to have seen his face whilst driving.
And then I got called on stage! Pretty exciting to be asking questions to the ACE Man...
It started just as I expected: he cut me off and did not let me finish. But I got to say: "I won't be able to finish my question am I?" "No you won't!" Adam Replied.
But I stayed on stage and was allowed to go back and forth with Adam and Giel for a very long time! I had a blast and think I got some good jokes and counters in there.

At some point Adam asked me:
what do you do for a living besides interrupting his poscast?
I told him I was a web designer / developer.
Quick as he is, he started saying that I probaly have the same thing with people's websites that he, as a former carpenter, has with people's houses and woodwork: you notice it all sucks!
I can relate so replied:
I know I saw your website
Man it was fun! And Adam is a great sport, he allowed me to plug my company and website and even put links in the show notes.
Visit the (beautiful, lol) Adam Carolla Show website to listen to the show, my bit start at around 58 minutes.

All the great fans got time to meet and talk to Adam and the ACS team, it was a great night.
Many thanks to Adam Carolla, Chris Laxamana, Mike Dawson and all the ACE fans I got to meet!
