MAN-UP-Pete Holmes.jpg

PETE HOLMES is a comic with a lot on his mind, including a spiritual quest to find a connection with the divine that has taken him on all sorts of interesting paths. He's also funny as hell, of course, and he sat in with host Carl Kozlowski and guest hosts Kevin Corcoran and Adam Gropman to discuss his new memoir Comedy Sex God and his just-ended terrific HBO sitcom Crashing, and of course, the meaning of life and the universe. Plus, they discuss the latest in the NXVIM sex cult trial and how cult leaders manage to have such game over women, and explore the terrifying wonders of jeados and janties.
