Comedian Pete Holmes has a new show on TBS. He has made a series of videos about super heroes. The best of which is when he is Professor Xavier and fires individual X-Men for their lack of actual super powers. He also did a hilarious video where he plays Batman trying to have a discussion with Superman.

Another thing Holmes is good at? Awkward, yet funny, interviews with athletes. Kind of like Zach Galifianakis’s between two ferns segment but less dry. He has done an interview with Houston Rockets star James Harden and now he has posted an interview with Olympics star Lolo Jones.

She is in good spirits during the interview and more lively than Harden in his interview. They recount an awkward interview they had before, and discuss the “bases of dating.” Holmes tells the story about asking her about her tan and why she is so tan. Jones responded by saying “because I’m black.” They try to recreate the moment and Holmes makes it even more awkward.
