You Made It Weird is a weekly comedy interview podcast, hosted by Pete Holmes. It was hosted on the Nerdist network since October 25, 2011, but as of February 28, 2018 is independently distributed. The show originated under the premise that Holmes would ask his guest, usually a fellow comedian, about three "weird" things he knew about them, but the show has since evolved into a much more loose conversation about such complex topics as comedy, religion, and sexuality.
While initially focusing on interviews with comedians, an increasing number of guests from other fields have appeared on the show, including musicians, pastors, scientists, and authors. Many guests comment on Holmes' unique laugh, which tends to be very loud and borderline obnoxious. Katie Levine is the producer of the podcast.
The show is usually recorded in-studio at the Nerdist studio at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles, California. Since March 21, 2012, Holmes has recorded multiple live episodes of the podcast, in Austin at South by Southwest,New York,Bloomington,Chicago,Montreal, Quebec, San Francisco, Los Angeles at the LA Riot Festival, and Toronto at Just For Laughs. These have featured several guests rather than the usual one, and focus more on comedy rather than the in-depth discussion of a regular episode.
In a 2013 A.V. Club interview, Holmes lists his favorite guests as Emily Gordon and Bert Kreischer. Harris Wittels described his long battle with addiction and his new found sobriety just months before his death in February 2015.
