  1. The whole time I was waiting for Glenn Beck to mentioned. I thought the conversation on money and “playing the villain” were perfect avenues for segues. Realised I mistook him for Brian SACK. Whoops.
    Great conversation btw.

  2. Dylan says:

    What a lovely guy! Late night with Conan will always have a special place in my heart. I was just watching some of the old bits the other day. Great writing.

  3. Joe Beckman says:

    Pete Holmes…I really really like you. Let’s be clear, I have a wife, and three kids, and I’m as big of a fan of boobs as anyone I know, and at the same time I feel like when I listen to your podcasts, I just want to give you a big hug.

    You are such a good dude, and a great interviewer. You’re so damn present with each of your guests, and you truly care about learning about each and every one of them.

    Two of my favorites interviews are Rob Bell, and Science Mike. SOOOOOOOO GREAT!

    Thanks for sharing your heart, being so authentic, and creating quality programming for people to digest. If you’re ever in Minneapolis I would love for you to buy me a beer.

    Peace brother

  5. Alan Spindle says:

    This niceness is not just a showbiz ruse! I knew Brian when he was doing improv in Chicago instead of going home to sleep. He has not changed a bit.

  6. Joe says:

    I couldn’t decide if Brian sounds like a happy Alan Arkin or Garrison Keillor

  7. Paul says:

    The nicest guy not just in showbiz, but possibly anywhere on the planet. He’s also insanely funny and clever and great.

    What a perfect guest for YMIW!

  8. Jay says:

    A nicer dude I could not imagine. Love his characters on Conan.

  9. Joe says:

    Brian mentions Astral weeks as his favorite song..

    Everyone go check out Astral Weeks, the song and the album.

    It might just change your whole thing.

  10. Kevin C says:

    I’ve been a fan of Brian from years of watching him on Conan! I’m glad to hear he’s such a nice guy!
