Adam Carolloa, the comedian who was born and raised in North Hollywood, launched a new TV show in July on the Speed Network called The Car Show.
In the show's fourth episode, Carolla paid a visit to the legendary George Barris, who from his shop in North Hollywood designed many of film and television's most famous cars, including the Batmobile and the Munstermobile.
North Hollywood-Toluca Lake Patch has had the pleasure of interviewing both Barris and Carolla. We talked with Carolla — it wasn't so much a talk as it was listening to one of his famous rants, this time about how shockingly bad many adults are at their jobs — and we back in early 2011 by Barris himself.
In early April, it was George Barris Week here at Patch as we paid tribute to the living legend. Check out the series here:
In this attached YouTube video, Carolla cruises around North Hollywood and Valley Village in the Batmobile and hits up the at Magnolia Boulevard and Colfax Avenue.
