  • Co-producer Judd Apatow told the Hollywood Reporter that Pete Holmes had him drastically worried at the pitch meeting because he intellectualized the show rather than tell jokes.
  • In the show, Pete meets TJ Miller at a club in Albany when TJ is already an established comedian. In real life, Pete and TJ are long-time best friends, having met when they both started doing comedy in Chicago.
  • On The Pete Holmes Show, Judd Apatow was in a sketch where Pete pitched several ideas to him, one of them being the premise for Crashing.
  • In the pilot, much of the pep-talk that Artie gives to Pete at the pizza place was improvised after director, Judd Apatow, told Artie to tell Pete the actual advice he would give to a younger and newer comedian in real life.
  • Pete Holmes was raised as an evangelical Christian, went to a Christian college and was thinking of becoming a youth pastor.
