Conan O’Brien’s prodigy, Pete Holmes, of TBS’ canceled The Pete Holmes Show, has a brand new hit show, Crashing, on HBO, following Judd Apatow’s other hit Girls.
Pete Holme’s character, “Pete Holmes,” is a Seinfeldian stand-up on the other side of fame, working his way up the comedy fame ladder with the help of T.J. Miller, Artie Lange, and Sarah Silverman, among others.
His backstory, however, is rooted in the Evangelical Christian world of camps and colleges, and the comedic side of Christian-insider information and jokes, like the “dry humping” loophole in young religious lovers.
But what do millennials and Gen Xers think?
As anti-religious “dones” and “nones” lead the polls as the fastest growing population of younger Americans, Crashing features a “soft” man-boy who is trying to make his way in a world post-mother, post-wife, and post-faith.
What’s your take?
Is Pete the new “man” for millennials?
