Conan Is Producing a New Late-Night Show Hosted by Pete Holmes
Some super exciting news for comedy geeks: Vulture is exclusively reporting that TBS is developing a new half-hour late-night show produced under Conan O’Brien’s Conaco banner and hosted by standup vet Pete Holmes. If you’re not already familiar with Holmes’ act, you might recognize him as the voice of the E-Trade Baby or have seen one of the cartoons he’s done for The New Yorker. Either way, we recommend familiarizing yourself with this very funny guy by checking out his fantastic debut album, Impregnated with Wonder, as well as the interview podcast that he does for Nerdist, You Made It Weird . Vulture says that Holmes will shoot a pilot for the new show in mid-August, so keep your fingers crossed that after watching, TBS decides to give it the go-ahead; in the meantime, click through to watch an entertaining clip of a recent appearance that he made on Conan.
