Pete developed an interest in magic courtesy of Expo 88, the international festival showcasing performers from all over the globe. Here he learnt how truly universal magic was as an entertainment, engaging audiences of all ages and languages. He learnt that magic really is the most surefire entertainment to cover a diverse audience.
Pete now performs for corporate shows and private parties around Australia. He specializes in interactive comedy magic, involving stand-up comedy, audience participation and magic. He developed this style of many years as a way to bring people together at any event.
In 2013 Pete teamed with mentalist Sean Mergard to create Turning Tricks, which premiered at the Fringe Festival in September 2013. The show returned for a sold out extended season at the Anywhere Theatre Festival in May 2014 and was described as “A mind boggling fusion of magic and comedy”. The show then went on to Brisbane Powerhouse’s Wonderland Festival. The follow up show: Turning Tricks 2, again played to sold-out audiences at the Anywhere Theatre Festival and a return Halloween season at the Metro Arts Theatre. 2016 was the premiere of Miracle Mongers at the Anywhere Theatre Festival and again at Brisbane Powerhouse’s Wonderland Festival.
