Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Judd Apatow and series star and creator Pete Holmes, CRASHING is a half-hour comedy series that centers on Pete, a sheltered suburbanite in a supposedly solid marriage, who dreams of making it as a stand-up comedian. But when he finds out his longtime wife Jessica is cheating on him with Leif, Pete's safe world unravels, forcing him to reevaluate his priorities. So he flees to the New York comedy scene, where he crashes on other people's couches, in the process learning hard lessons about life and himself. Holmes draws on his own experiences as a stand-up comic, offering a behind-the-scenes look at the unpredictable world of live comedy. Among the notables appearing as versions of themselves on the show are Dave Attell, Hannibal Buress, Artie Lange, T.J. Miller, Jim Norton, Rachael Ray and Sarah Silverman. HBO premiered the eight-episode second season of CRASHING on Sunday, January 14, 2018 at 10:30pm ET/PT. In the season opener, "The Atheist," Pete is feeling lost in the universe, but has an enlightening conversation with famed magician and guest star Penn Jillette, an atheist, which shakes Pete's faith and inspires him to try living with abandon for one night of debauchery in New York. This marks the beginning of a season in which he starts to question his faith and find his voice. Other guest stars this season include Joy Behar, Doug Benson, Bill Burr, Whitney Cummings, Wayne Federman, Jermaine Fowler, Gilbert Gottfried, The Lucas Brothers, Eugene Mirman, John Mulaney, Aparna Nancherla, Dr. Oz, Jeff Ross, Bobby Tisdale, Melissa Villasenor and Henry Zebrowski.
On Sunday, March 4, 2018 at 10:30pm ET/PT, HBO premiered "Roast Battle," the season finale of CRASHING. In an attempt to show Ali that he has a backbone, Pete enters a comedy-roast battle, but finds that being mean is harder than he thought. The fierce competition brings uncomfortable truths to the surface, forcing Pete to examine his priorities in life.
