Peter Rowsthorn is a high energy, fast paced stand-up comedian one minute and a measured character actor the next. He is probably best known as long-suffering husband and pants-man Brett Craig on Kath & Kim.
Peter’s career really took off in 1988, when he was offered roles in The Comedy Company, Fast Forward and The Big Gig, all in the same week. He chose The Comedy Company and spent the next two seasons with the show. After performing in the feature film Crackers, he became a semi-regular on Hey Hey, It’s Saturday and hosted the Red Faces spin-off Gonged But Not Forgotten. He was also the host of Foxtel’s Sunday Roast for two seasons.
Peter has guested regularly on Thank God You’re Here series 1, 2, 3 and 4, popped up on Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation and hosts Can We Help for the ABC on Friday nights.
He recently appeared on Network 10’s 2018 series of I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here.
Peter is one of Australia’s best stand-up comedians and is also an extremely skilled Master of Ceremonies.
