The Nose Is "Crashing" New Haven

Mar 10, 2017

Here's a familiar formula: stand up comedian + television cameras = sitcom. And, ultimately, that's the math behind HBO's new series "Crashing" starring Pete Holmes and executive produced by Judd Apatow. This show is a little different, though, from things like "Louie" and "Seinfeld" (and a lot different from things like "Roseanne" and "Everybody Loves Raymond") in that it's actually about Holmes's (character's) fledgling stand up career.

And speaking of stand up comedians and television: New York magazine's current cover story interview with David Letterman contains multitudes.

GUESTS:

  • Lucy Gellman - Reporter for the New Haven Independent and host on WNHH
  • Pedro Soto - Chief operating officer at Space-Craft Manufacturing in New Haven
  • Shawn Murray - Stand-up comedian based in New Haven
