You Made It Weird #1: Kumail Nanjiani

It’s the premiere episode of You Made It Weird with Pete Holmes! Everybody has secret weirdness, Pete Holmes gets comedians to share theirs.

There’s plenty weird about my hilarious friend Kumail Nanjiani to get the show started off right! I’ve been good friends with Kumail for ten years so we’re able to go deep into his comedy (specifically how his early voice was so different from his style now), his marriage (Kumail is one of the few young, married comedians I know) and his thoughts on religion. Buckle up for weirdness!

    Maybe someday we’ll see Kumail’s smiling face next to the YMIW logo. I can only dream…

  2. Loreley says:

    Hey! German sweets are the best. They beat your degenerate American twinkies and marshmallows any time, Holmes! You have so much more to learn.

  3. Justin says:

    Don’t worry Kumail, I’ll remember forever so you got at least a good couple decades of life after death. 😀

    Great podcast! Pete and Kumail were two of the guys I really liked seeing at the Lyon’s Den back when I lived in Chicago. I’m glad there was a mention of Dan Kaufman, who was another favorite of mine. Looking forward to more episodes!
