  • It’s only been a few of months since I discovered this podcast, I’ve listened to the lot and lately seeing a new episode become available has become a highlight in my day.

    My big hope is that The Midnight Show (is that what he said it was called?) will be available as a podcast too.

  • Half-way through one of my favorite episodes.

    I really like what you said about making it to a certain point in your career where you can step back and think how far you come (specifically, you story about middling at the stress factory and now headlining there).

    I play in a band that does OK now and I love having those moments. Like how I was listening to and obsessing over a band ten years ago and now my band gets to play with them and I’m good friends with them. It’s great to be able to have those moments and share them with people you know appreciate the same way you do.

  • Loved how cringy John felt about things he had previously said to Pete in their “safe place”. Could totally relate, made me think he is – One of us. One of us.

    Was looking forward to John Mulaney on the show – did not disappoint. Great ep!

  • Everything pete says is hilarious. Keep laughing every two seconds pete! Glad you got malaney on the show finally. I’ve been saying you should get him on since this first started.

  • *log onto nerdist to see if any new podcats have dropped.

    JOHN MULANEY! I loved Riki’s interview with him, and since Pete brings him up ALL the time, I’ve been waiting so long for this. Now I must rush home to listen. Happy day! :)

  • Haven’t listened yet. I’m just so excited for my two favorite stand-ups on the same podcast! Mulaney’s latest album is the best comedy album I’ve listened to in years.

  • I totally did that ride it out thing with you Pete when you came here to Salt Lake City. I can’t even remember what I said, I just wanted to hug you. I hope it wasn’t too awkward for you, because it was just awkward enough for me.

  • Yay, John Mulaney! I first heard both of you guys on Pandora and got Impregnated With Wonder, and just now ordered New In Town. You both have a stand-out quality that really appealed to me. Every time I hear the bit about the homeless guy I die laughing!

    I stopped approaching entertainers to compliment them (not that I’ve done that a lot) because the last few times I felt like they looked at me like I had Down’s Syndrome (I don’t), which is kinda how I treat someone who talks to me about Jesus. Loved your Johnny Carson dream!

  • Pete. I am getting a divorce. It has been so good to hear you talking so frankly about the subject. You have steadily become one of my favorite comedians. I think you are great but I also think it’s hilarious when people insult you and you react with a false “Fuck you forever.” So I will end with this. My seven year old niece came up with “Prince get mints.” all on her own. She’s seven and coming up with comedy equal to yours.

  • It wasn’t Mulaney who made a negative reference to Pete’s ex-wife on one of the live shows, was it? Whoever it was, Mulaney’s remarks towards her filled me with the same perverse delight as that since Pete is usually so even-keeled about her.

  • Jake, that was Matt Braunger live in chicago! I love it too. Zach, I love that a seven year old did a joke of mine organically (it really did make me laugh) but since I think you want one, here’s a joking “fuck you forever!” Sorry about your divorce, hang in there!

  • Pete, I can’t tell you how much I enjoy your podcast, because I don’t… GeeHeeeee! F*ck Me Forever. I LOVE your podcast, Pete. (Please have thought that was funny). Listening to you laugh puts a smile on my dumb face after a long day of working in a hospital full of terminally ill puppies…. How sad would that be? No, I actually work at a real hospital and your show is a great reminder to keep life vibrant and light. This was a great episode and your new prospective show is very exciting. You deserve great things, Pete. Your carefree and brave attitude <–(Is that a thing?) towards trying new things, like impressions, without consequence of judgment is something I'm trying to incorporate into my life. For example, I'm posting this fairly long, personal comment full of risque jokes in the open. And I decided to learn a new musical instrument I've always wanted to: ukulele. I want to be Hawaiian. Or maybe I just like pineapple a lot. Either way. Thank you Pete.

    John, I remember your "I love it" sketch on weekend update. I always wanted you to do a lot more of that, because it was clever.

    Ok, I'm officially a crazy guy for writing all this.

    Or maybe I'm just a weirdo.
    Thanks Pete,


  • Pete, I love you, but you’ve gotta quiet down sometimes and let the guest talk. Mulaney’s one of my favorites and there were too many times when he had to quiet you down to get a word in edgewise about his own career. You’re smart and awesome and I love it best when you have an evenly matched ping pong game between another smart and awesome guy rather than seeing you bounce the ball on your side

    Love you, love your show. YOu’re the best Pete, I only let you know this out of love

  • Pete,this is the first time I’ve listened to you { my son told me about YMIW} I had no idea who you were,glad I do now. You are almost as good at interviews as Mark M. but you seem to be getting there fast.I’ve been a fan of Mulaneys for a couple of month’s now,and i hope he’ll come to the Count Basie theatre in Red bank,NJ some day soon.I will continue to listen to you in the future Pete,Stay Crispy.

  • Pete,
    I love your laugh. It is the only one that can rival my wife for loudness and breadth. I really really loved the ending talk about religion. I thought it was insightful, funny, and tender. Great stuff. The entire podcast actually inspired me to go to my first open mic Friday night. Thank you so much. Though, maybe after Friday night I will be cursing you and John Mulaney’s names. haha
