The Man Behind Mangria: Comedian Adam Carolla to Keynote at the 2014 Nightclub & Bar Show

The Man Behind Mangria: Comedian Adam Carolla
to Keynote at the 2014 Nightclub & Bar Show

Adam Carolla, popular comedian, entrepreneur and host of the “The Adam Carolla Show,” is confirmed to deliver a keynote address, participate in the official ribbon cutting and air an episode of “The Adam Carolla Show” at the 2014 Nightclub & Bar Convention and Trade Show in Las Vegas on Tuesday, March 25.

Carolla, who launched a successful ready-made cocktail line called Mangria in 2012, will offer insight into the business strategies and knowledge he has gained while becoming a beverage industry entrepreneur, two-time New York Times bestselling author, beloved multimedia personality, successful comedian and Guinness World Record holder for the most-downloaded podcast in 2011, with more than 60 million unique downloads over two years. Whether cultivating a strong following on social media or expanding his popular podcast’s audience, Carolla’s brand continues to grow as he embarks on new opportunities that meet a demand he’s identified within his audience.

“Adam Carolla is an inspiration and the true definition of an entrepreneurial spirit,” said Jon Taffer, Nightclub & Bar Media Group president and Spike TV’s “Bar Rescue” host and executive producer. “He had already made a name for himself in the entertainment world and still decided to venture into the beverage industry with his Mangria cocktail line. I want all of our Nightclub & Bar Show attendees to pay close attention to Adam’s keynote because his unique perspective will benefit anyone willing to put in the work to become a success.”

Following his keynote address, Carolla will join Taffer for the Nightclub & Bar Show’s honorary ribbon cutting moment at the entrance to the show floor. Carolla will then host an episode of “The Adam Carolla Show” on the Nightclub & Bar Show floor with Taffer serving as special guest host. The two businessmen and entertainers will channel the energy of the largest nightlife industry trade show while discussing entertaining and hilarious adventures they’ve encountered in their careers.

Adam Carolla’s Mangria comes in two varieties – Signature White Peach & Pear and Orange Sangria. According to Carolla, the concept began when, as a nightly red wine consumer, he was shocked one night to find only one glass remaining in his wine bottle. He then decided to do what any innovator would do by scouring his fridge and liquor cabinet and combining the perfect amounts of various ingredients. The result that evening was Mangria, and Carolla has since built his signature drink’s distribution network to include numerous states throughout the United States and Canada.

Those interested in hearing Carolla’s keynote address and discovering the other insight provided throughout the 2014 Nightclub & Bar Convention and Trade Show can register directly through the conference website.
