About the Author

Pete Holmes is a writer, comedian, cartoonist, theologian, and podcast host. His podcast, You Made It Weird, sees 2 million downloads per episode. Pete also writes, co-produces with Judd Apatow, and stars in the semi-autobiographical HBO show Crashing. His stand-up shows regularly sell out across the country. He lives in LA with his wife, Valerie.


"Pete Holmes is Hunter S. Thompson if he was square as shit and funny as fuck. Did I swear enough? Pussy?"--Sarah Silverman
"A marvelous and heartfelt story about the journey from role to soul."--Ram Dass
"Pete Holmes is that rare stand-up comedian who is wickedly sharp without being cynical and joyously exuberant without losing his edge. In Comedy Sex God, Pete hilariously confronts his faith in a way I would never dare, unless I thought there was real money in it."--Conan O'Brien
"The thing about Pete is that there's this question he never stops asking in his life and work: What is this? From his standup to his podcast to his talk to show to Crashing, this What is this? question infuses all he does with an existential urgency and a spiritual vitality. This is why so many resonate with him--he's welcoming everyone in to the ancient practice of asking and seeking and questioning and following it where it leads, insisting that we join in him in his wonder and awe. He often says We're on a rock flying through space and he's tired of not talking about it. Well, this time he's writing about it, and you're going to love it."--Rob Bell, author of Love Wins and What Is The Bible?
Pete Holmes is a thoughtful and hilarious contradiction. Centered, but ambitious. Zen, but stressed. He's like the Buddha if the Buddha Googled himself. This memoir captures all the wonderful inconsistencies and strengths of my very funny friend. It was a joy to read.--John Mulaney
Seldom do I read such creative and humorous writing--and have it be so profound and true at the same time. To quote Thomas Merton four days before he died 'One day you realize that most of religion is laughable. And then you realize that you are nevertheless religious.' Peter Holmes might just be the new Merton!--Richard Rohr, author of The Universal Christ
