Have you been watching The Pete Holmes Show, a new Conan O’Brien-produced program on TBS? It’s part talk show, part sketch show, and all charming – thanks mostly to Pete Holmes himself, a veteran standup who’s probably best known outside of comedy circles for voicing the E-Trade baby in a series of popular commercials. (So yeah, Lindsay Lohan isn’t his biggest fan.)
But Holmes is more than a simple comedian. As the host revealed during his show’s second episode Tuesday night, he’s also a “gal kinda fella” – a.k.a. a dude who’s perfectly comfortable sitting on a couch in his PJs and eating fro-yo while Allison Williams of Girls fame spills all of his deepest, darkest secrets, including when he lost his virginity and why he and his ex-wife got divorced. (Spoiler alert: She was cheating on him with some dude named Rocko.) Also, they spend some time speaking in exaggerated Bahston accents, just ‘cause.
There’s still plenty of time to jump aboard the Pete Holmes train: The show’s third episode airs tonight at midnight on TBS.
