Crashing on HBO
I've now seen the first two episodes, and I'm enjoying myself. Pete Holmes is a really funny stand-up, and I liked his show that was on TBS. The jokes in "Crashing" aren't groundbreaking or socially relevant or anything, but there is still some pretty funny stuff. I loved how everyone tried to get him to do what Tig Notaro did (which was one of the funniest sets I've ever heard) and it colossally blew up in his face.
I think what sold me into watching more episodes is Pete describing it as a stand-up comedian origin story. I'd really like to see how a stand-up gets to be a big draw and how much shit they have to swallow to get there. It also has actual stand-ups doing funny sets like Artie Lange and TJ Miller, so it should at least be funny during those parts. It definitely doesn't deserve the full Bald Move treatment, but I'm hoping for a 6-7 minute Bald T.V talk at some point.
Anyone else watching?
