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.
