Cinema Sentries is teaming up with HBO Home Entertainment to award one lucky reader Crashing: The Complete First Season on DVD. For those wanting to learn more, read Davy's review and read the press release below:
This summer, the irreverently funny, new HBO hit series that “hits all the right notes” (Vanity Fair) and “delights at every turn” (TIME) will be available to take home on Blu-ray and DVD. Starring and created by Pete Holmes, one of today’s most popular stand-up comedians, Crashing: The Complete First Season is the semi-autobiographical comedy that follows a stand-up comic whose suburban life unravels, causing him to lose everything, but his sense of humor. Achieving universal critical acclaim and already renewed for a second season, Crashing: The Complete First Season became available on Blu-ray and DVD on August 1, 2017 featuring all eight season 1 episodes and Pete Holmes’ first ever HBO stand-up comedy special Pete Holmes: Faces and Sounds.
Executive produced by Judd Apatow and Pete Holmes, and loosely inspired by Holmes' personal experiences in stand-up comedy, Crashing follows an aspiring comic named Pete (Holmes), who finds out his wife Jessica (Lauren Lapkus) is cheating on him, forcing a move to New York to pursue his dream of being a comedian. Thrown into the deep end in a city that's not for the faint of heart, the formerly sheltered Pete learns some hard lessons about life and comedy, encountering all sorts of stand-up talents along the way, from cynical guru Artie Lange, to outrageous provocateur T.J. Miller, to benevolent motivator Sarah Silverman, and many more. While trying to make ends meet by crashing on other people's couches (hence the series name), Pete finds goodness in unlikely places, evolving into someone who's a little more okay with the messiness of life. A love letter to stand-up, Crashing is a series about discovering humor, beauty and grace in the crazy den of thieves that is the NYC comedy scene.
