After nearly two months of testing the waters with the weekly round-ups and occasional news post, we here at AP.net (but mostly me) are finally ready to delve into the world of frequent and consistent comedy content. To kick it off, we're premiering a track off of comedian/podcaster Pete Holmes' new album Nice Try, The Devil.
In an age of comedy rife with pessimism and bitterness, Holmes' unflinching optimism is a refreshing and hilarious change of pace, and the short, self-examining track "White Wine / Youth Pastor" perfectly exemplifies his state of mind. You can stream it in the replies, and keep a look out for Nice Try, The Devil, premiering on Comedy Central this Sunday, May 12th at 10/9pm CT, and coming out on CD/DVD next Tuesday the 14th.
...and if you like Pete's standup. Check out his podcast "You Made It Weird" in which his goal is to talk to comedians, friends, and both about things that you're not supposed to talk about: Comedy, Sex, and religion (or lack thereof) but inevitably end up talking about a whole bunch of other weird, funny shit.
