Episode 58: Pete Holmes on Comedy, Sex and God

by | May 22, 2020 | Inspiration, Season 6, Spirituality | 0 comments

We’re back with the season debut of The Art of Humanity! We have a brand new season that focuses on “Uncertainty” during these…weird times. And what better way to start the season than with a fellow podcast host of a show called…“You Made It Weird!” 

Today’s guest is my favorite living comedian, Pete Holmes!

Pete is a comedian, actor, writer, producer, television host, spiritual seeker, and podcast host.  His wildly popular podcast You Made it Weird is a comedic exploration of the meaning of life with guests ranging from Deepak Chopra and Elizabeth Gilbert to Seth Rogen and Garry Shandlin. Pete also created and starred in the semi-auto-bio-graphical HBO show Crashing, which he executive produced alongside Judd Apatow. An accomplished stand-up with three hour-long television specials and late-night appearances, he tours regularly (when we’re not in a pandemic) to sold-out crowds.  

In this interview, Pete and I discuss:

  • how the life of a comedian isn’t that different from quarantine
  • the Holy Moment from Waking Life
  • the importance of digital detoxes to the creativity process
  • the importance of failure

We also discuss:

  • what happened to him when he visited Ram Dass in Maui
  • how podcasting makes him a better comedian
  • what’s next for Pete!

Let’s go to the show!
