Ontario-born, Pete went to school in New York City, had a successful run in an Off Broadway production and then found his way back home. Landing in Toronto, he threw himself into the stand-up comedy circuit with much success and has quickly become one of the top headlining comics in the country, as evidenced by his 2006 Canadian Comedy Award for best male stand-up. He has appeared on his own episode of Comedy NOW! for CTV/The Comedy Network. Last summer Pete made his fifth appearance at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal starring in his own gala performance. Pete has made numerous film television appearances, including the upcoming ABC series Copper, CBC’s The Sean Cullen Show and Little Mosque On The Prairie.
