Comedian Adam Carolla criticized the comedy industry Saturday night on "Watters World," saying comics used to be a part of counter-culture, but now play a popularity game.  "For some reason, comedy used to be a counter-culture thing, used to push back against the man. … At some point comedy turned into a popularity contest when it used to be a contest of who can make the most people think, agitate the most people and get the most conversations started," he said.
