Together with Judd Apatow, comedian Pete Holmes has chronicled the life of a man dedicated to pursuing his love of comedy. So naturally, he’s single and homeless. While the show title could mean crashing on stage when you bomb a set, I prefer to think of the fact that we’re all crashing our way through figuring out life. We are essentially all bulls in china shops, just trying to figure out how to get through life as gracefully as possible. And with less broken valuables. Here is what’s been happening in Pete’s life.   Episode  #5 – “Parents” You know how sometimes you see a parent and a child...

Pete Holmes is CRASHING; Joining Him?

Pete Holmes has landed on the HBO schedule now with CRASHING and HBO has been promoting it pretty hard. Of course, it wants to stick another good comedy on its slate, right? Could this be the one?
