A high energy, fast paced stand up comedian one minute, a measured character actor the next, and a masterful MC the following...if nothing else Pete Rowsthorn has plenty of experience, just no idea how to keep track of time!
That said, when he strides out onto the stage at your next function your audience will quickly realise that their event is going to be a little different, and if they don't, then check their pulses, because they might be dead!
One of Australia’s most experienced stand up comics, performing in just about every stand up room in the country as well as delighting numerous corporate clients, Pete Rowsthorn is also one of Australia’s most talented comedy actors.
A star of stage and both the small and big screen with numerous movie and television appearances, he was a regular participant on “Thank God You're Here”, and hosted the ABC’s series “Can We Help” but is probably best known for his role as the downtrodden Brett from Kath & Kim.
This versatility means Pete can easily communicate to, and also cater for, an incredibly broad range of clientele Pete’s infectious enthusiasm, humour and energy make him one of this country’s most popular and memorable MC’s.
His enviable reputation comes from knowing just a little bit about a lot and blending it in a visual, irreverent and highly entertaining way to ensure your event is a total success. If you get the chance, ask him to do his E.T. impersonation…you and your guests will not be disappointed.
“Peter was fantastic. He read the room perfectly and made the awards night one the most enjoyable nights ever. Nothing was too much for Peter including signing autographs, having photo’s taken, and mixing with the crowd which they loved. Professionalism personified. Could not speak more highly of a person. Thanks!”

“I personally laughed so much I could hardly breathe!! He was so funny, and I am unsure if it was coincidental or not, but I identified with every situation he described. He did a great job helping with the award presentations and certainly brought great value to our event!”
- Rosemary C
“I thought Peter got the function off to a great start and had the room for the length of his intro - he then proceeded to manage our speakers in a very professional manner. Nedlands Rugby would have no problems recommending Peter for future functions.”
