Setting Goals and Loving Yourself with Pete Holmes

Comedian, podcaster and creator/host of The Pete Holmes Show, the eponymous Pete Holmes is proof that self-belief can lead to success. Although the show was canceled after two seasons, the perpetual optimist is not letting it get him down.

His podcast You Made It Weird is a one-on-one conversation with a range of guests from notable comedians to spiritual leaders. Aiming to find the weirdness in others, Holmes is at his best while openly discussing his own life in the podcast or standup. His demeanor is never false whether laughing at his own sexual endeavors or discussing spiritual adventures.

I recently sat down with Pete before his shows at the Toronto Just for [...]

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.

Pete Holmes Gives M. Bison Some Realistic Finance Advice in "Street Fighter Red Tape"

The Pete Holmes Show may be nearing the end of its run on television, but that hasn't stopped Holmes from continuing his delightfully silly series "Street Fighter Red Tape." It's finally M. Bison's turn to sit across the desk from Holmes for some real talk concerning just how over budget his plans for his fight tournament/world takeover plan are — expensive cars, business class international flights, trained elephants, and all.

Take a Romantic Escape with Ray Romano and Pete Holmes in "Romano Duets"

Finally someone has one-upped the already perfect idea of Ray Romano singing a compilation of smooth love songs by adding a second Romano in the mix, and the result is the wonderful above video "Romano Duets" with Ray Romano and Pete "Ray Romano" Holmes. Just try to listen to this without falling prey to the romantic wiles of Double Romano.

Moshe Kasher Was on 'Pete Holmes' Last Night, and They Almost Made Out

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.

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. This was also the TV standup debut for Liedman, who co-stars in the web series Bestie X Bestie with Jenny Slate and writes for Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and it was a super funny set.
