About Pete Holmes
Pete Holmes is a nationally touring standup comedian, actor, “Christ-leaning spiritual seeker,” improviser, writer, cartoonist, and late-night host.
Pete is currently the host of the wildly popular podcast, “You Made It Weird,” which is a comedic exploration of the meaning of life with guests ranging from Deepak Chopra and Elizabeth Gilbert to Seth Rogen and Garry Shandling. With more than 600 episodes, “You Made It Weird” has been downloaded over 39 million times and is recognized annually as a top podcast.
This year, Pete starred in the primetime CBS bowling sitcom, HOW WE ROLL, that is based on the life story of Tom Smallwood (Holmes), a stoic Midwest husband and dad who gets laid off from a car assembly line and makes the unique decision to pursue his dream of becoming a professional bowler as a means to provide for his family.
Comedy Sex God, Pete’s first book, was published May 14, 2019, by Harper Wave. Part autobiography, part philosophical inquiry, and part spiritual quest, Comedy Sex God is a hilarious, profound, and enlightening romp around his fertile mind.
In March 2019, Pete’s semi-autobiographical HBO comedy series, CRASHING, that he created, starred in, and executive-produced, alongside Judd Apatow, celebrated its third and final season. CRASHING was critically acclaimed and followed a stand-up comic (Pete Holmes) who reevaluates his life and enters the New York comedy scene after discovering his wife's infidelity.
An accomplished standup, with three hour-long television specials (HBO’s PETE HOLMES: DIRTY CLEAN, HBO’S PETE HOLMES: FACES AND SOUNDS, and Comedy Central’s PETE HOLMES: NICE TRY, THE DEVIL!) and innumerous late-night appearances, Pete also hosted his own late-night TBS talk show, THE PETE HOLMES SHOW, that aired for two seasons.
