Pete explained how he was dared to do this by his friends as they knew of his dreams of becoming a comedian – and it’s a good job they did!

Pete’s journey into comedy
As said, Pete’s first gig was at a bowling alley at just 16 years old but his first proper on-screen debut was in the MTV comedy series Failosophy.
This kickstarted his career and shortly after he began appearing on different reality TV shows until he got his first formal stand up performance that was aired on the comedy network, Gotham Comedy Live – a network specifically catering to showcasing up and coming comedians.
He then had a brief appearance in the hit series Brooklyn 99 before landing his current spot on SNL. He received this incredible opportunity when he was filing for his small rile in the 2015 comedy Trainwreck after meeting Bill Hader.
