“Pete is a hilarious comedian who I have seen in action on many occasions. He is a very likeable and talented young man who can alter his act to suit the audience, a rare talent indeed. His ‘This is your life’ for me was so funny but also very moving and something I’ll always remember. It’s nice to listen to a comedian who can make people laugh without being rude or offensive”.
