When Australians want a comedian that looks like Phillip Seymour-Hoffman they turn to Peter Helliar.
Pete first came to the nations attention in 1999 as a cast member of ROVE, Rove McManus's ill-fated first series on the Nine Network. When the show went to Network TEN in 2000, Pete went with it becoming an integral part of the Logie Award winning variety show until it wound up at the end of 2009.
All the while Pete has been working as a stand up, touring to sold out houses in Australia and New Zealand as well as hosting his own radio shows for Triple M and 2Day-FM.
