Guests

Pete Holmes – promoting the season 2 finale of Crashing

Show Topics

  • What is the deal with all the talent TV Shows? There are so many now, that it is hard to follow which is which. Covino’s new favorite is The Four, which is supposed to be finding the next big music superstar, very similar to how American Idol does. Only difference are the judges, P. Diddy, Meghan Trainor, DJ Khaled, and Charlie Walk, and they are brutally honest with the contestants. It takes a lot to get past them, and even when someone does, it takes a lot to stay in the competition. Do you think this show could potentially outshine the new season of American Idol, which is moving to ABC over FOX?
  • We are interested in which coffee is best for you today. Rich has coffee every morning and is trying to ween himself off of sugar and cream in it, but is having a tough time getting used to the taste of black coffee. What type of milk is best for coffee? Is it regular dairy milk or one of the newer options like Almond or Oat milk? Whichever it is, it’s going to take a lot to make Rich drink black coffee!
  • Why are people so obsessed with the band Rush? They seem to have a cult following, and everyone who knows of them either LOVES them or HATES them, there’s no in between. You do have to give respect to their drummer, who is one of the greatest of all time, but otherwise what is it about the band that makes them so legendary? This whole conversation started because Rich was watching an episode of the Goldberg’s where the band was mentioned and had to bring it up on the air. The other place they are known from? Slap the Bass Man!

 

  • Pete Holmes is here to promote the new season of his HBO show Crashing, and tells us all about how the show came to be. It loosely follows his life, and the events that lead him up to making it big, like how his wife cheated on him, how he was homeless, and how he got into the comedy scene. The show happened because of a connection with Judd Apatow, who made him write episodes before agreeing to work on it with him. Basically, the story is of a average guy whose life is turned upside down, and how he deals with the trials and tribulations that follow.
