Pete Holmes at Sasquatch 2012 (more by Chris Graham)
Pete Holmes

It's been a long time coming for ol' Pete Holmes. He's done his time in Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles, taped a half hour special for Comedy Central, done countless late night spots, and even wrote for a few less-than-memorable television programs. His newest special, Nice Try, The Devil has been praised across the board, and rightfully so -- it was playful but thoughtful, and personal yet positive. And of course, his podcast, You Made It Weird, continues to enlighten and inspire comedy nerds everywhere with its insights into the minds of everyone from Chris Gethard to Judd Apatow. So it's not a stretch to say that Petey Holmes has most certainly earned his newest gig, The Pete Holmes Show, set to air on TBS after Conan starting Monday, October 28.

But before that show airs, you can catch Pete live when he returns to New York for a show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on October 10. Tickets go on sale Friday (9/6) at noon. He currently has no other upcoming tour dates announced.

I don't think there's a soul on Earth who enjoys hearing themselves talk more than Pete Holmes.

Outsourced was starting to get pretty good when they axed it - though I don't know how long they could have run with it. Parks and Rec was also pretty bad when it first started, but grew to become a great show.

I understand people who think he's a bit gabby on the podcasts though I disagree. As a stand-up though, he's absolutely grade A and a class act. Nice Try The Devil was fantastic. Wish him the best.

Pete Holmes is the type of comic I usually hate, but he's actually really funny. Chris Gethard, however, you can keep.

This guy is another ass hole, you already have . . CONAN the original ass hole.!

I like this guy. But I can't help but feel that if he wasn't on TV, no one would've laughed as much. I'm trying to imagine someone else saying the same exact jokes at an open mic and getting the same reaction.
