Born and raised in Belfast to a Malaysian father and Irish mother, Peter is a comedian with hard hitting, punchy jokes and hilarious tales of growing up in Northern Ireland.
Since he started performing stand up, he has reached the semi-finals of the Laughing Horse New Act Competition and won the London Comedy Store’s King Gong Competition. He is also resident MC at Fulham Comedy Club and cementing himself as a must-see act on the circuit.
Combining his love of comedy writing and acting (he was a member of the National Youth Theatre of Great Britain) Peter has been creating funny sketches for Instagram and TikTok. He is soon to be seen on Comedy Central Live in March and has supported Seann Walsh and Kerry Godliman on tour around the UK.
