The stars and EP of HBO’s brand new series Crashing- Judd Apatow, Artie Lange and Pete Holmes- will be at SiriusXM studios for a Town Hall on Valentine’s Day- February 13 at 11:30am. Ron Bennington will host the Town Hall which will take place in front of a studio audience in SiriusXM’s famed Fishbowl studio.
Crashing was created by and stars Pete Holmes as a stand up comic who discovers that his wife is unfaithful, leading him to reevaluate his life amidst the New York City comedy scene. Artie Lange plays a character based on himself, who helps Holmes after he finds himself wandering the streets with nowhere to go. Lauren Lapkus and T.J. Miller also co-star. The series was created by Pete Holmes, and is executive produced by Judd Apatow and Pete Holmes. The series launches its eight episode season on Sunday February 19th.
This should be an amazing event as all three guests are comedy giants. Judd Apatow has been in the business of comedy as a creator, performer, and writer since high school, and now in addition to creating his own great projects, he has developed a reputation as an EP with a discerning eye for talent and the ability to choose the right projects to help take artists to the next level in their careers. Pete Holmes had his own talk show on TBS, a hugely popular podcast, and just released a brand new hour special in 2015. Crashing may be his best project yet- deeply personal and yet hilariously funny. Artie Lange is one of the great ones. Both MADtv and the Howard Stern Show helped Artie to become a giant comedy star.
