Crashing (HBO 2017, Pete Holmes, Lauren Lapkus)

Crashing HBO Pete Holmes

Crashing tells the story of Pete, a sheltered suburbanite who married his childhood sweetheart and dreams of making it as a stand-up comedian. But when he finds out his wife is cheating on him, Pete’s world unravels, forcing him to reevaluate his priorities and plunging him into the deep end of the rough-and-tumble New York comedy scene. Among the critical raves, TIME said that Holmes “delights at every turn,” while the St. Louis Post-Dispatch hailed the show as “poignant and also genuinely funny,” and Entertainment Weekly noted, “Holmes is terrific as the show’s emotional core.”

Drawing on Holmes’ own experiences as a comedian, Crashing also features Lauren Lapkus and George Basil; among the notables appearing as versions of themselves in the first season are Dave Attell, Hannibal Burress, Artie Lange, T.J. Miller, Jim Norton, Rachael Ray and Sarah Silverman.
