Welcome to Comedy Now, a weekly column cataloging what comedy fans should know about what’s available in the streaming world. Whether it’s a brand new special, an old classic, or the oddball show that defies categorization, we’ll list as many as we can for your enjoyment right here. Who knows? We may even throw in a few non-streamable bits on occasion, like tour announcements from our favorite comics. You can check out the previous column here.
Pete Holmes is a really approachable guy, no matter how dirty or clean he gets
The third season of comic and podcaster Pete Holmes‘ popular HBO series Crashing premieres on January 20th, but his latest special with the premium cable channel debuts Saturday at 10 pm ET/PT. Titled Dirty Clean, the followup to 2016’s critically acclaimed Faces and Sounds bears all the hallmarks of Holmes’s preference for digging into the tiniest of details. In this case, the comedian spends much of the hour discoursing on the nature of clean and dirty material, why these categories even exist and which faces, sounds and gestures best convey each.
