The secret to telling a joke and getting on HBO, according to 'Crashing' stars Pete Holmes and Jamie Lee
The Chicago premiere of HBO's second season of "Crashing" was hosted by The A.V. Club at the Blu Dot modern-furniture store.
A furniture story was the perfect setting for the "Crashing" premiere, a show that follows the struggling comedian Pete (Pete Holmes) as he tries to make it in New York City's standup scene — and spends lots of nights crashing on friends' couches.
Holmes and Lee lit up the evening, joining the audience in watching the first two episodes of "Crashing" season two and doing an hour-long Q&A.
Before, during, and after the sneak-peek showing of episodes one and two, fans lounged around, socializing, eating, and sipping cocktails.
