Anybody watching?

Stars Pete Holmes, its a comedy/drama sorta thing loosely based on his life. A struggling would-be comedian tries to make his mark on the NY stand-up circuit immediately following a split with his wife. Lotta guest comedians try to help him out along the way, like Artie Lange, TJ Miller, & Sarah Silverman, for example. Really funny, & sometimes poignant. I'm digging it a lot. It's especially enjoyable if you're a New Yorker, or at least I love all the little NY-isms it has, having moved out of state some years back.

I adore Pete Holmes but haven't had a chance to watch this yet...

I loved his Batman skits but I haven't found him super funny beyond them.

I'm unfamiliar with his stand-up but he seems like he's got a sorta corny/clean approach that I wouldn't seek out. However, the show has edge, & a lot of its humor comes from the other performers (& how he reacts to them being so much different than him, as he's a square). I'd say if you like the first episode, you'll like the whole thing.

Season's over, had a pretty good finale. Definitely psyched for more.

So nobody else watching, eh?

I'm hoping to catch it at some point, but no luck yet... glad to hear you liked it!
