Peter Rowsthorn


Comedy, Hosts/MC's, Media

Peter Rowsthorn is a high energy, fast paced stand up comedian one minute and a measured character actor the next. A masterful MC of corporate and private functions, he has been performing his slick & blistering stand up for almost two decades. Most recently, Peter has been a guest regularly on "Thank God You're Here" series 1, 2 and 3, popped up on "Out Of The Question" and can currently be seen hosting the delightful "Can We Help" on the ABC on Friday nights. But Peter is probably still best known as long-suffering husband and pants-man Brett Craig on "Kath & Kim".
