      Everybody hates that sauce. Alton Brown threw it in the trash. Please take it out of the lineup.

      @Tom Franco In this show, "hot" is used in the sense of spicy, both for the wings and the questions, so "caliente" is a wrong translation. It should be "picante" all the way.

      I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I always wanted to say it and I'll take the opportunity that it was mentioned on this episode, but Pete Holmes is kind of right: Los Calientes does mean "The Hot Ones" but in the sense of heat, i.e. as in the opposite of "The Cold Ones", not in the sense of being spicy as you meant it. It should be "Los Picantes". I'm sure it's delicious anyway, that's the one with a bit of pineapple, right?

    That first comment.. yes, that jacket/ hair combo does have its implications.. as a shaven headed person myself, I urge Sean never to wear Doc Martens!

    Now the idiots have cancelled yet another excellent show about stand up comedy.
    'Crashing' was really good.
    'I'm Dying Up Here' was phenomenal.
    ..both cancelled, while Mrs Maisel keeps going >:(

    You never see any of these vegans or veggies eat the whole wing. You know why? Cause vegan food sucks balls!!! All the hot sauce in the world can't mask the horrible taste! LoL

    I always loves Pete Holmes, because he seems like he would be the most straight laced, conservative person, than he will make jokes about that, then also raise the most questions about pretty much any hypocrisy, on a level that he has obviously thought about it. I think that is how he can do character skits, because he understands people.

    • Neai Tuppi

      And I trust comediennes that will sometimes laugh at their own jokes.

    The only funny thing about it is that someone really said Pete Holmes is funny. He is worse than Amy Schummer in a depression episode.

    His laugh is actually sophomoric, generous, and disbelieving of what he just said at the same time. You don't see that every day.

    Why does he have zero concern for when guests choke on their own spit? Or how he fires questions while they are choking? Or how reacts less than half the time to what the guests are saying? Or how he has no concern for how hot the sauce is for himself? And how he tears up his stomach daily?
    Something don't add

    Smart Aries energy. So thoughtful without trying. I like Pete not so much as a comedian but for how good he is at analysing comedy and articulating it.

    Pete seems like a sweet, funny guy, but the way he genuinely questions if a hot sauce with the word "firewater" in it is "ok" really turns me off to him. Clearly subscribes to the PC bullshit, which for someone who calls himself a comedian is rather mind-boggling.
