Irreverent, brilliant, and smooth like fine jazz. That's Pete Johansson. Catching Pete perform is a trip...you can't guess where he is going, but you die with laughter when he gets there.

A former resident of Vancouver, Canada, Pete made his first forays into Hollywood after a wildly successful debut at the Montreal Just For Laughs festival.
Pete arrived in the UK a few years ago and quickly became a favourite at London’s renowned Comedy Store. Early into his move here, Pete was invited on Radio 4’s prominent Loose Ends as well as other radio and TV programmes, performed alongside the likes of Stephen Merchant, Stewart Lee and Simon Amstell as part of charity Alert’s peace benefit at the Bloomsbury Theatre in London, and bagged a starring role opposite Ed Byrne is BBC4’s Sex Bombs.
In his hit solo Edinburgh show Naked Pictures of My Life, Pete illustrated the embarrassing developments of his life and how he has reached his ‘happy-apathy’ attitude towards life. This show garnered rave reviews and also bagged him a nomination for one of the most coveted awards in comedy. Check out his press by clicking the link on the left. Since then he has returned to Edinburgh with Pete's On Earth (2010), Utopian Crack Pipe (2012), Several Jokes (2014), Just Google Me (2015) and Good People (2016).
Pete headlines comedy clubs around the world, from New York’s Caroline’s Comedy Club, The Helium Club In Philadelphia, Austin’s Capital Comedy Club, Minneapolis’s Acme Comedy Theater, The Comedy Store in London and Manchester, as well as shows in Dubai, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Afghanistan, Guam, Cayman Islands, Germany, Malta, Cyprus, Amsterdam, Ireland and Canada, and many, many more too numerous to mention.
Pete has also performed on several Just For Laughs Galas (CBC), The Late Show with Craig Kilborn (CBS), and has appeared on Comedy Central's Premium Blend, Comedy Central's Remix, Open Mike with Mike Bullard(CTV) and National Lampoon's Funny Money (GSN). He's no stranger to the UK television screens either, having performed on Russell Howard's Good News (BBC3), Comedy Central's Live at the Comedy Store and Best of the Fest (Channel 4).
