In his first hour-long special on Comedy Central, Pete Holmes perfects his signature silliness. He may look like a youth pastor, but he's as comfortable talking about religion as he is ... See full summary »
Creators, cast and network executives recount the strange history of the Dana Carvey Show, the irreverent prime time sketch comedy show that aired for eight episodes on ABC, following its star's meteoric run on Saturday Night Live.
John Mulaney relays stories from his childhood and Saturday Night Live (1975), eviscerates the value of college, and laments getting older in this comedy special. Other topics include the church, his family, Trump and pedophiles abducting kids.
First of all I want to say that I always thought Pete Holmes was very funny, he always made me laugh.This show even started out good.I loved that all his guests would be obscure comedians just being silly with him.Sadly, this show went down hill quickly.By the second week he was using five year old jokes from his stand-up act and it was clear it couldn't last long.I made a Twitter account just to tell him that and I was promptly banned.No conspiracy there.....So by the end of the first month the show just disappeared with no mention of whether it would ever come back.Over two months later it came back re-tooled and worse than ever.It was clear that he was no longer the main writer and the awkward interviews with main stream celebrities were just awful.The only funny thing about the show was listening to messages from his dad.I feel bad for him that this show wasn't successful but it wasn't good so it deserved to fail.Be thankful you never saw it.
