Debut: Sunday, March 26 (10:30-11:00 p.m. ET)
Homeless once more and facing professional disappointment, Pete (Pete Holmes) turns to Artie Lange, who invites him to be a guest on his podcast. Pete meets Sarah Silverman, who takes pity on him and invites him to stay with her and her collection of stray comedians. When Sarah suggests that he try to find work as an audience “warm-up” comedian, Pete is presented with a job opportunity, where he’s tasked with saving the day.
