A former resident of Vancouver, and Montreal, Pete made his first forays into Hollywood after a wildly successful debut at the Montreal Just For Laughs festival, where appearing in one of the smaller shows he signed a deal with Warner Brothers Television, soon after Pete made his network debut on NBC’s Friday Night and followed that with the lead in the independent film Mixed Signals with Jason London and Brook Langdon. Keeping on the road Pete performed across the country for the Improvisation comedy clubs in his spare time. The following year he made his first foray into comedy in England and Ireland performing at London’s Comedy Store and various clubs. Returning from the road Pete started working with HBO independent productions in a new development deal and landed a spot at the USA Comedy arts Festival in Aspen Co, as one of the new faces. Pete also starred in his first half hour special for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in an episode of Comics. He followed this up the following year with an hour long special for The Comedy Channel’s Comedy Now! series.
