Pete Holmes: Faces And Sounds Is First Stand-Up Special For Comedian

HBO and HBO Canada announced a new stand-up special, Pete Holmes: Faces And Sounds, debuting Saturday, December 3rd at 10pm.

Taped at the Vic Theatre in Chicago this past April, the exclusive presentation features his insights into life’s most absurd moments.

Over the course of his silly, high-energy performance, Holmes shares his thoughts on such disparate topics as: the keys to happiness; the illogicality of nightmares; being an “easy laugh”; what to wear on a flight; bizarre quirks of language; filling one’s “joy quota”; how the British deal with awkward situations; the ridiculousness of porn; and more.

Pete Holmes also created and stars in Crashing, the upcoming HBO comedy series from executive producer Judd Apatow. About a New York stand-up comic who is forced to reevaluate his life, the show is slated to debut on the network early next year. Holmes hosts the popular podcast You Made It Weird, which features a wide range of guests, including comedians, musicians, writers and actors, and previously hosted the cable program “The Pete Holmes Show.” He has also appeared on “Conan” and “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” as well as starring in two cable comedy specials.

Pete Holmes: Faces And Sounds, a Generate production, is executive produced by Pete Holmes, among others, and producers include Judd Apatow.
