Holmes’ book release comes two months after his semi-autobiographical comedy series "Crashing," coproduced by Judd Apatow, wrapped its third and final season on HBO. Similarly to the series, the book will recount how Holmes climbed his way up the comedy ladder (which he says he’s still climbing) in New York City’s famed clubs.
The book promises rare stories of his "soul-seeking" path to television, including a psychedelic mushroom trip that shifted his faith and life views. Plus, a dive into how he learned to separate the TV Pete and real Pete.
"When I’m in a tight spot, the quickest way to make myself laugh and gain a new perspective is by asking myself, ‘I wonder what’s going to happen with Pete?’" Holmes writes.
IF YOU GO: "Comedy Sex God Live!" A Conversation with Pete Holmes and Special Guest" will begin at 7 p.m. on May 15 at The William Vale in Brooklyn. Tickets, priced at $35 each, are available for purchase at wordbookstores.com/peteholmes.
