Tuesday, October 10th
8pm | Great Hall / MSC
Blue Devil Productions is proud to present comedian Pete Lee on Friday, November 10th at 8:00 pm in the Great Hall, located on UW-Stout's Memorial Student Center's upper level.
Pete Lee might be the nicest person in New York City, but that's because it's impossible to sound aggressive with a Wisconsin accent. Pete was raised in Janesville, WI by divorced parents and a 19-inch television, which is probably why he pursued a career in entertainment.
Pete made his television debut on Comedy Central's Premium Blend in 2005. Soon after moving to NYC, he was selected to perform at the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, where he was voted a standout performer. In 2008 Pete made his network television debut performing on NBC's Last Comic Standing finishing as a semi-finalist. That same year, he made his television acting debut on the CBS Soap Opera As The World Turns, lasting two episodes! At the end of 2008 he then shot his own Comedy Central half Hour Special, which earned him a "cult" following at comedy clubs, and the opportunity to perform over the next four years at 500 colleges across the country.
In 2010 Pete began producing and editing his own shows for the Internet which led to getting his own web show on MSN.com called New York Minute:30. His web shows attracted the attention of television talent scouts and in 2012 he was hired to be a writer and cast member on FUSE TV's Video on Trial and the NFL Network's Top 10's. In 2013, Pete was hired as a cast member on VH1's Best Week Ever, which debuted in January.
