The big guy with the (usually) goofy hair has spent his entire life entertaining the public.
In his native Wisconsin, Peter worked in radio as an on-air personality, advertising copywriter and producer, promotion coordinator and, eventually, as program director. During this time he also performed in community theatre, wrote and performed songs in an alternative rock band and began a second career as a nightclub disc jockey.
Over twelve years ago, he moved to Seattle and quickly became a popular and successful disc jockey in the region. He also helped manage a Seattle record store and did freelance writing for the music industry.
Peter is relatively new to stand-up, having only begun to pursue it in earnest as of March 2003, but his experience and comfort with public appearances has made him a sought after MC and feature act. He has a wealth of fresh topical material with a decidedly personal spin and a wry wit.
