Pete Holmes Pitches a Movie Idea to Judd Apatow

The Pete Holmes Show returned to the airwaves last night, and Holmes sat down with superstar comedy filmmaker Judd Apatow to pitch him a movie. Apatow is pretty straightforward about what he looks for in his leading male actors — they've got to be Jewish and they've got to have a "comedy penis" — and Holmes demonstrated that he's willing to do anything to star in an Apatow film.

Gabe Liedman Was 'Pete Holmes Show's First-Ever Standup Last Night

Since The Pete Holmes Show debuted in October, they haven't had anyone do standup yet — until last night when Gabe Liedman became the show's first person to do standup.

Pete Holmes Renames Ryu's Spinning Kick in 'Street Fighter Red Tape'

Ryu has always seemed to make himself overly complicated in Street Fighter, and Pete Holmes has addressed that in what I hope is the first of many episodes of his new series "Street Fighter Red Tape," in which he guides Ryu (played by Mark-Paul Gosselaar) through some "pre-approved fight statements" as well as some deeper questions involving Ryu's sexual preferences.

Chelsea Peretti Helped Pete Holmes Go Through His Wardrobe

On last night's Pete Holmes Show, Pete invited Chelsea Peretti to join him for a segment called "Worst Best Friend," in which she comes in and gets to insult him for a few minutes, as she does. Last night's hook was that Pete doesn't dress very well, so Chelsea came in to go through the show's wardrobe with him, resulting in an extended Cosby impression and exactly zero actual fashion advice.

John Mulaney and Pete Holmes Have a Delightful Friendship Full of Insults

Pete Holmes had longtime friend and fellow nice comedian John Mulaney on his show last night, and since they really are such good friends they didn't waste any time in getting to John making fun of Pete for his divorce.

Writers and hosts of the much beloved show Totally J/K Joe Mande and Noah Garfinkel stopped by The Pete Holmes Show last night, and they mostly just talked about things that are unwise to do while under the influence of marijuana.

Moshe Kasher was a guest on Pete Holmes last night, and the two had an interesting interaction of almost kissing each other, calling Moshe a "gayman" who lives in "Gaymaica," and Moshe discussing his take on the fluid notion of sex and gender, which is a lot funnier than it probably sounds.
