Pete Holmes

Pete Holmes is a stand-up comedian who you might recognize from John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon or Conan. You might have even seen him on Comedy Central’s Hot List or his very own Comedy Central Presents. You could have seen his web videos with Front Page Films. You’ve probably listed to his Nerdist podcast, You Made it Weird. I think, and I could be wrong, that when you look up “funny” in the dictionary you’ll see his picture. Oh wait, I just checked, and I was wrong. Don’t let that deter you though, he’s hilarious.
