Over the course of his silly, high-energy performance, Holmes shares his thoughts on such disparate topics as: the keys to happiness; the illogicality of nightmares; being an “easy laugh;” what to wear on a flight; bizarre quirks of language; filling one’s “joy quota;” how the British deal with awkward situations; the ridiculousness of porn; and more. Pete Holmes: Faces and Sounds was taped at the Vic Theatre in Chicago this past April.
Pete Holmes also created and stars in Crashing, the upcoming HBO comedy series from executive producer Judd Apatow, about a New York stand-up comic who is forced to re-evaluate his life. The show is slated to debut on the network early next year. Holmes hosts the popular podcast You Made It Weird, which features a wide range of guests, including comedians, musicians, writers and actors, and previously hosted the cable program The Pete Holmes Show. He has also appeared on Conan and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, as well as starring in two cable comedy specials.
Pete Holmes: Faces and Sounds debuts Saturday, December 3rd at 10pm ET/PT.
