Peter lives in Wilmette, IL, a suburb just north of Chicago with his wife, three kids. Unlike other comedians, he has had many jobs in the "real world" including being a licensed Realtor, before delving into the business of being funny.
After receiving his Journalism degree from Drake University, Peter held many writing positions for radio stations, magazines and an advertising agency. It wasn't until he worked part-time as a bartender at a club that had "open mic"competitions, that he decided to try standup. The first time he went on stage, Peter went 15 minutes over the time limit not knowing that the flashing red light meant get the #$%@# off the stage.
With many years years under his belt, Peter knows his audience, which is intelligent, literate and sharp. His delivery comes right out of the old school: premise, setup and punch line. If you get it--great. If not, too bad.
Performing mainly for corporate and college clients and occasionally comedy clubs that aren't to far from home, Peter, who customizes all his shows, and his writing partners have completed three screenplays and are finishing up a fourth.
