15 of the Weirdest Moments Pete Holmes Has Had on 'You Made It Weird'

Pete Holmes brings the same high-energy approach that defines his standup act to his podcasts, almost daring his interview subjects to match his candor in the conversation. And it works; most guests get caught in Holmes’s wake and find themselves admitting as much or more about themselves than he does.

Holmes often jokes about “stealing” Marc Maron’s podcast format, which is true to the extent that they both do in-depth interviews with comedians. The similarities really end there, though, because Pete Holmes and Marc Maron are two very different comics and conduct very different interviews. In the 100th episode of You Made It Weird, in which Holmes had his [...]

Pete Holmes Has a New Album Out Next Month

Pete Holmes has a new stand-up album coming your way real soon. Called Nice Try, The Devil, the album drops May 14th and is available for pre-order now. Holmes, the host of the popular Nerdist podcast You Made It Weird, was recently made the host of a new TBS late night show, debuting this fall after Conan. Nice Try, The Devil is his second album after 2011's Impregnated with Wonder. The album cover (to the left) makes it feel almost like he purposefully chose one that Marc Maron would give him shit for.

Pete Holmes Needs Your Help Making It Weird

Pete Holmes's excellent interview podcast You Made It Weird is about to hit a major milestone: its 100th episode. For the big episode, Holmes is copying Marc Maron once again by having another comedian interview him, choosing Chelsea Peretti for his 100th wheareas Maron opted for Mike Birbiglia for his 200th. Holmes has requested, via Twitter, for fans to submit questions for Chelsea to ask him at ymiw100@gmail.com. Hopefully, Marc Maron will submit some questions teasing Pete Holmes for copying him because that's always the best. Also, when is Holmes gonna take in a bunch of stray cats already? That's something that should have happened by now.

This Week in Comedy Podcasts

“Backstreet’s back, alright!” And by that I mean me, I’m back, alright. I’m sorry I missed last week’s column but I was on the frontlines of South by Southwest covering the war on people not listening to podcasts. This year there were so many live podcasts at SXSW – Comedy Bang! Bang!, Doug Loves Movies, Risk, Who Charted?, Kevin Pollack Chat Show, etc. x1000 – that locals started referring to the festival as Pod by Podcast (which, come to think of it, didn’t and still doesn’t make any sense). Nonetheless, I had to leave Austin (more like South BYE Southwest, amirite? yesiam – oknoiamnot) to report back on all [...]

Talking to Pete Holmes About His New TBS Late Night Show, Long Podcasts, and Conan

Pete Holmes is hardly an unknown — he hosts the hugely popular podcast You Made It Weird, recorded his own Comedy Central Presents, and of course, voices the E-Trade Baby. But he's officially moved to the next level; it was announced last week that his late night talk show (originally called The Midnight Show with Pete Holmes) will premiere after Conan this fall, executive produced by Conan O'Brien and Jeff Ross. Earlier this week, I got the chance to chat with him about putting together a half hour talk show, working with Conan, and creating a comedy clubhouse at TBS.

What can you tell us about what the show will be like?

I'll be honest [...]

Talking to Pete Holmes About Standup, Writing, Podcasting, and the Joys of Being Made Fun Of

For any non-comedy nerds out there who might be reading this, standup comedian Pete Holmes is the voice of the E-Trade Baby.

OK, got your cultural touchstone? Good. Because you should check out more of his work.

Holmes is kind of a comedy renaissance man, dabbling in cartoons (The New Yorker), sketches (CollegeHumor, etc.), sitcom writing (Outsourced), acting (Ugly Americans) and podcasting (“You Made it Weird”) to supplement his work as headlining comic. He’s become a major draw on the standup scene, and recently received a Best Club Comic nomination for Comedy Central’s upcoming Comedy Awards.

Fans of “You Made it Weird” know that Holmes loves to talk [...]

Talking to Pete Holmes About 'The Pete Holmes Show' and Making a More Personal Late Night Show

Pete Holmes is the perfect person to host a late night talk show. The standup and host of popular over-sharing podcast You Made It Weird has everything it takes to be a great late night host; he's charming and silly, he's great at bringing out the best in his guests, and he wanted to be David Letterman as a child. And of course, he's very funny.

Lucky for us, then, that The Pete Holmes Show debuts tonight at midnight on TBS, after Conan. The first few weeks of guests have been already been announced; unlike most late night shows, his show will tape a week in advance. I caught up with him [...]

'The Ben Stiller Show' Is Getting the Band Back Together

In November, the New York Comedy Festival is bringing together all the major players of The Ben Stiller Show: Janeane Garafolo, Bob Odenkirk, Judd Apatow, Andy Dick, Jeff Kahn, Rob Cohen, and, you guessed it, Ben Stiller. This about 20 years since the show was canceled by Fox after only 12 episodes. In that time, many of these people went on to great careers and others were Andy Dick.  Other announced shows include a live taping of You Made It Weird, "Crowd Work with Colin Quinn," Splitsider's own Nikki Glaser and Sara Schaefer will be doing "Nikki & Sara & Friends," and Denis Leary will have a [...]
