Finally caught up, the past 3 episodes have been really top notch, kicked it up quite a bit and the show has really been enjoyable. Very pleased it has been renewed.

The Artie stuff was surreal

That fight toward the end was cringe inducing. Oooof. Good episode though. Looks like the finale is going to be a roast. Awesome!

This has been a fantastic sophomore effort. Really hitting its stride.

The roasts

Sucks the season ended so fast

Why not 10 or 12 episodes in season 3?

Hope he gets back with Ali next season.

I do hope they increase the episode order to at least 10 (which seems standard for their comedies) next season.

Great finale.

Just binged the first two seasons - hadn't really paid attention before. Great show - a guy like Leaf would annoy the shit out of me if I knew him in real life but he's awesome on the show.

Brings back a lot of memories for me - I lived on the block they frequently show (Thompson St.) for 2 years in the 90s. I walked by the clubs on W 3rd most days and remember being annoyed by all the barkers. Definitely remember them calling out all the celebrity names. Never went to a show!

In case folks watching this show weren't aware, there was a Roast Battle show on Comedy Central for a while. It was very entertaining and worked pretty much exactly like what you saw in this episode.

Jeff Ross Presents: Roast Battle

Hopefully having it make an appearance in Crashing is a sign it is coming back some time.

I became a Pete Holmes fan after watching this show and any project he does from now on I will take a look at.

Just watched him on the Off Camera with Sam Jones show on the DirecTV Audience channel. It was filmed prior to season 2 of Crashing airing. Very enjoyable. Makes me think I should give his You Made it Weird podcast a try.

It was a good interview

I think he has a standup special on HBO too.

Re: Crashing (HBO) created by & starring Pete Holmes; EP: Apatow

Fresh off of his two-month college comedy tour, Pete returns to New York City with newfound confidence in his comedic abilities. While growing more assured, he continues to struggle over what he really wants out of comedy and how to find a happy balance between his old, faith-based self and the new, more ambitious comic he's becoming. Created by and starring Pete Holmes, the critically acclaimed comedy series CRASHING returns for its eight-episode third season SUNDAY, JAN. 20 (10:00-10:30 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO. Executive produced by Pete Holmes, Judd Apatow (HBO's "Girls" and "The Zen Diaries of Garry Shandling"), Judah Miller ("Playing House") and Igor Srubshchik ("Master of None"), the series draws on Holmes' own experiences as a comedian, providing a nuanced, hilarious look at the state of comedy today. CRASHING's third season finds Pete reinvigorated - and no longer crashing on people's couches - as he reenters the NYC stand-up comedy world following his college tour. But even though he's improved, that doesn't mean he's at the head of the pack. While continuing to orbit around fellow comic and ex-girlfriend Ali (Jamie Lee), he connects with a new woman, Kat (Madeline Wise), who has a unique perspective on the comedy world and isn't trying to make it big by telling jokes. As Pete edges closer to success one stand-up set at a time, he continues to navigate his faith, dating and the ever-changing comedy scene.
8 episode third season.

Sweet. An underrated show. If you haven't had the chance to see it, Pete Holmes had an HBO comedy special a few weeks ago. Pretty good stuff.

Looks like they filmed Artie for this season before his nose went to total shit.

Only 8 episodes again

Glad it is back. I felt sorry for him when that young guy got booked after only doing one show in NY.

I didn't. Pete hasn't been in the game that long himself, and is jumping the cue in front of others already.

During the college tour he seemed to have gotten this attitude of success and being "the man" in NY to show the kid around. He was pretty much bragging and trying to impress the kid, meanwhile the kid's acting more mature and just going about his business taking everything in stride.
