Stoic Midwest husband and dad, Tom gets laid off from a car assembly line and makes the extraordinary decision to provide for his family by following his dream of becoming a professional bowler. Tom begins his new career with the loving okay from his wife, Jen the unfaltering support of Archie, his mentor and the proud owner of Archie’s Lanes: Home of the Curly Fry, the cautious backing of his protective mom, Helen, and the encouragement of his son, Sam.
Over the course of his silly, high-energy performance, Holmes shares his thoughts on such disparate topics as: the keys to happiness; the illogicality of nightmares; being an “easy laugh”; what to wear on a flight; bizarre quirks of language; filling one’s “joy quota”; how the British deal with awkward situations; the ridiculousness of porn; and more.
In his first hour-long special on Comedy Central, comedian and podcast host (You Made It Weird) Pete Holmes perfects his signature silliness and really gets into that time Juan won one. While he may look like a youth pastor, he’s as comfortable talking about religion as he is secretly hating his girlfriend’s friends and being a straight man who is 100% Gay for Ryan Gosling. Trust us, this special is McDonald’s.
