Tv Season Info

The semi-autobiographical show follows Pete (Pete Holmes) as he tries to become a stand-up comedian after his wife cheats on him and he's left with nothing else. When Pete hits rock bottom, he decides to follow his dreams of becoming a comedian, and tries his best at stand-up shows; however, he's not as talented as he would like to think, and it's only with the help of other famous comedians that he's able to learn the ropes. Among others, Artie Lange and T.J. Miller, playing fictional versions of themselves, teach him how to be spontaneous, irreverent and careless, helping Pete shed his old self and take on a new persona.

While all this adds up to a perfectly enjoyable experience, Crashing never gets off the couch... He's a comic with plenty of talent, but stuck in a story that doesn't stand out.

A genial, likable sitcom that fits the genial, likable personality of its leading man.

Crashing deserves an audience. It is clever, witty and genuinely funny, working from the idea that the stand-up comedian is a kind of pastor to his unruly flock.

Crashing works because Holmes is so sweet (there's really no other word for it) that we root for him every step of the way.

Crashing has enough mostly gentle amusements to keep it on track.

At its best, though, Crashing is a kind of corrective, and an honest one at that. Comedy need not be only the refuge of the cynic. It also has room for figures like Holmes, for whom the craft is less a burden than a blast.
