Comedian Pete Holmes to headline Comedy Attic’s 15th anniversary benefit Oct. 26-28


Comedian Pete Holmes will perform five shows at The Comedy Attic to celebrate the venue’s 15th anniversary this week. On Oct. 26, the venue will donate all admission costs to the local non-profit organization Cancer Support Community of South-Central Indiana. 

 Tickets for the 8 p.m. show Oct. 26 are available for $30, and the doors will open at 7 p.m. On Oct. 27 and 28, Holmes will perform shows at 7 and 9:30 p.m. Doors will open at 6 and 9 p.m. Tickets to these performances will also cost $30 and will offer an opportunity to donate extra money to the non-profit.  

Holmes will be stopping by as part of “The Feelin’ It Tour.” His comedy career began in New York City in the 2000’s and he has now performed on multiple late-night comedy shows. 

Since 2011, he has been hosting the comedy podcast, “You Made It Weird” with Pete Holmes. He also has released multiple comedy albums and has starred in many stand-up specials. Holmes also created and starred in “Crashing,” a semi-autobiographical HBO series. In 2019, he published the book “Comedy Sex God.”  

Each year, The Comedy Attic raises money for local non-profits and charities during their annual anniversary benefit show. Since 2008, the comedy club has raised more than $60,000 for different local charities, according to their website.  

The non-profit organization offers free support groups to people impacted by cancer in any way. Patients, caregivers, survivors, friends and family are welcome to join Cancer Support Community’s programs. Along with the support groups, the organization provides individual counseling and music and art therapy. They also offer exercise and nutrition classes, cancer education, financial assistance and a wig boutique, according to The Comedy Attic’s website.
