Peter Helliar

Comedian, broadcaster, actor & film writer

Peter Helliar has been one of Australia's favourite comedians since his first appearance on our TV screens as a core cast member on the Logie Award winning Rove back in 1999. Pete has performed stand up for years, selling out shows right across the country, where he makes "the difficult business of being funny look dead easy".

Now the Gold Logie Nominee making people laugh four nights a week on Network Ten's The Project, the beloved show where news is delivered differently.

A man of many talents, Peter created and co-produced two series of the award winning It's A Date for ABC TV, in which he also made his television directorial debut and his new scripted series How to Stay Married aired its first series on Network Ten in 2018.

He also recently released another book as part of his best-selling Frankie Fish series for kids.

In 2018, Frankie Fish was voted one of Australia's Top 50 kids books in the annual Better Reading Top 50 Kids Books poll and Frankie Fish and the Sonic Suitcase was shortlisted for the ABIAs for Book of the Year for Younger Children in 2018.
