Crashing (HBO) – Premieres 19th February – Renewed
Comedy loosely based on Pete Holmes life and career, where he is a struggling comedian who after six years of marriage finds his wife in bed with another man. This leads him head off to New York where he ends up bombing on stage after being talking into using his marriage break up as a routine.
After dying on stage he meets up with Artie Lange who takes Pete under his wing and give him a place to stay after his attempt at reconciling with his wife ends before it starts.
The show is reminiscent of the Louie style comedies knocking about, though with Pete being an over trusting christian trying to become a comedian it’s weirdly upbeat even though everything goes against him.
