Description

Part autobiography, part philosophical inquiry, and part spiritual quest, Comedy Sex God is a hilarious, profound, and enlightening romp around the fertile mind of stand-up stand-out, podcast king, and HBO superstar Pete Holmes.Pete Holmes is a sold-out-every-night stand-up comedian with two HBO specials and the host of the hugely successful podcast You Made It Weird, and he was the creator-star of the hit HBO show Crashing. But it wasnt always roses for Pete. Growing up, Pete was raised an evangelical Christian, but his religion taught him that being badsmoking, drinking, having doubts or premarital sexwould get him sent to an eternity in hell. So, terrified of the God he loved, Pete devoted his life to being good, even marrying his first girlfriend at the age of twenty-two only to discover a few years later he was being cheated on. Thanks for nothing, God.Petes failed attempt at a picture-perfect life forced him to reexamine his beliefs, but neither atheism, nor Christianity, nor copious bottles of Yellow Tail led him to enlightenment. Pete longed for a model of faith that served him and his newfound uncertainties about the universe, so he embarked on a soul-seeking journey that continues to this day. Through encounters with mind-altering substances, honing his craft in front of thousands of his comedy fans, and spending time with savants like Ram Dass, Pete forged a new lifeboth spiritually and personally.Beautifully written and often completely hilariousimagine Dasss Be Here Now if penned by one of the funniest people aliveComedy Sex God reveals a man at the top of his game and a seeker in search of the deeper meanings of life, love, and comedy.
