Holmes Invasion

Pete Holmes seems like he’s got more momentum than ever -- despite having his late night talk show canceled this past summer. The smiley faced comedian appears in downtown Phoenix on Friday, October 24, as part of his fall tour.

Being handpicked by Conan O’Brien to head up his own talk show, Holmes had to have a lot going on besides just being funny. Holmes’ ability to connect with guests has been well honed on his long-running podcast, You Made It Weird. There, he encourages guests, a mix of comedy friends, up-and-comers, and legit stars, to open up and get personal. Holmes’ various social media accounts show just how hilariously silly the man can get but his willingness to be an open book about his own life makes him a compelling figure to catch live.

Holmes is performing at Stand Up Live, 50 West Jefferson Street in Phoenix, through Sunday, October 26. Friday's shows are at 7:30 and 10 p.m. Admission is $22. To purchase tickets or for more information, visit

Fri., Oct. 24, 7:30 & 10 p.m.; Sat., Oct. 25, 7 & 10 p.m.; Sun., Oct. 26, 7 p.m., 2014
