If comedy didn’t exist Peter Helliar would be in a lot of trouble. Pete was born to be a comedian, he has no choice. Pete spent many of his younger years involved in amateur theatre and community radio before he decided to try his hand as a stand up in 1996. It was a fait accompli that Pete would become one of the most talked about new comics. In 1999 he joined Rove McManus on rove on the Nine Network and followed him to rove[live] on Ten, where he has stayed. He continues to work as a stand-up selling out at the Melbourne Comedy Festival and can be heard on Austereo nationally on Saturday Morning Rove.
