Join us for a brand new episode* of Crashing with comedian Pete Holmes who brings us a behind-the-scenes look at the unpredictable world of stand-up comedy.
Scheduled to attend: Pete Holmes, star and executive producer of Crashing
Starring Pete Holmes, HBO’s new critically acclaimed series Crashing, executive produced by Judd Apatow, draws on Holmes’ own experiences as a comedian, offering a behind-the-scenes look at the unpredictable world of stand-up comedy. After discovering his wife is having an affair, Pete flees to the New York comedy scene, where he crashes on other people’s couches. In this new episode, titled “Warm-up,” Pete meets Sarah Silverman, who invites him to stay with her and her collection of stray comedians. When Sarah suggests that he try to find work as an audience “warm-up” comedian, Pete is presented with a job opportunity, where he’s tasked with saving the day.
