HBO’s new comedy series Crashing will receive its UK premiere on Sky Atlantic on Tuesday February 21st at 10:10pm, it has been announced.
Crashing follows Pete, a sheltered suburbanite who married his childhood sweetheart and dreams of making it as a stand-up comedian. After discovering his wife, Jessica, in a compromising position with another man, aspiring but unworldly stand-up comedian Pete 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.
The half-hour comedy series hails from Pete Holmes and Judd Apatow and is based on Holmes’ own experiences as a comedian, offering a behind-the-scenes look at the unpredictable world of stand-up comedy. The cast includes Holmes, Lauren Lapkus (HBO’s “Animals.”) as Pete’s wife, Jessica, and George Basil (“Flaked”) as Leif, Jessica’s lover. Among the notables appearing as versions of themselves on the show are Dave Attell, Hannibal Burress, Artie Lange, T.J. Miller, Jim Norton, Rachael Ray and Sarah Silverman.
