Adam Carolla has been an actor and comedy writer for three decades, best known for his work on "Loveline," "The Man Show," and "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" But this spring, the comedian is really shaking things up.

With the new movie "Road Hard," Carolla is in the director's chair for the first time, alongside co-director Kevin Hench, but don't get it twisted: Carolla still stars in the comedy. The film follows a comedian (Carolla) forced to go back on the road to provide for his daughter following an expensive divorce and the cancellation of his TV show.

To celebrate the release of his new comedy, we asked Carolla for his five all-time favorite comedies, above.

"Road Hard" arrives in theaters Friday, March 6.
