A month or so ago, I told you all that you should be watching The Pete Holmes Show. Pete is an incredibly funny guy as most of you know by now. Granted, some of the guests he interviews are not top tier yet, but that comes with time. A late night host first needs to find his legs. It seems he is finding his legs with extremely funny sketches between guests on his show. I am sure many of you are already familiar with his Ex-Men bit, where he dresses like Professor X from X-Men and fires random X-Men for various, insane reasons? Well, sit down and get ready because this time, Pete Holmes fires Cyclops.
So what, did you expect me to just tell you how awesome it was? Nah, that’s not cool. You need to see Pete Holmes fire Cyclops for yourself.
You know, rather than say all the things I love about this, it would be easier to say what I don’t love about it. Nothing. I think it’s awesome. Pete Holmes has made it quite clear he knows how to lampoon pop culture and bring in the nerd demographic, because believe it or not, we are legion. With the nerd legion at his back, Pete Holmes really can’t fail.
So I have to ask: What X-Men do you think Pete Holmes will fire next? My money is on Banshee. Ohhh, you can yell and fly around, and that does exactly WHAT to help us?
