Pete sits down with his goofy goof friend Chris D'Elia (Whitney, comedy) to talk about how comedy can be silly, goofy and a third word that means silly or goofy as well as some real deep shit about psychology and crazy comedy thoughts for real. It's VERY crispy in there, weirdos. Be careful.
Pete sits down with two of his absolute favorite New Yorker cartoonists Matt Diffee and Alex Gregory to discuss hilariously and in depth-edly the intricate and complex world of cartooning.

What’s weirder than Nick Kroll telling Pete his laugh is the absolute worst? Let’s just say Pete calls Nick a son-of-a-bitch like 40 times. And “vaginas dentata” is mentioned, if that’s a thing. And comedy, sex and God. Oh, and candy bars and growing up pretty well off.
Anthony Jeselnik (Comedy Central Presents, Comedy Central Roasts, CD "Shakespeare") is Anthony Jeselnik ALL THE TIME.

BONUS EPISODE! What's weirder than a long talk with Dave Coulier? Like, for real, anything? Pete and Dave talk about getting-then-losing SNL, what Dave "pulled down" for Full House, Muppet Babies, sex, and God. Somehow it was both deep AND filled with the occasional fart noise. Weird.
Demetri and I get weird talking about how God is a bouncing ball, divorce and whether or not he feels "stuck in his persona". Great episode with a great comedian!
It gets REAL weird with my longtime friend/movie star/rapper/weirdo T.J. Miller. We get into life-threatening brain surgery, the meaning of life and he makes me feel weird for being a TV writer. But in the best kind of way.
There's plenty weird about my hilarious friend Kumail Nanjiani to get the show started off right! I've been good friends with Kumail for ten years so we're able to go deep into his comedy (specifically how his early voice was so different from his style now), his marriage (Kumail is one of the few young, married comedians I know) and his thoughts on religion. Buckle up for weirdness!
