Peter Berman wanted to be a stand up comic since a very young age. While attending the University of Michigan, he finally had his opportunity. Within no time at all he was opening shows for Tim Allen, Paul Reiser, and Jerry Seinfeld. A Boston native, now living in Los Angeles, Peter has performed in every great comedy club and rotten hellhole throughout the United States, Canada, England and Ireland. His first television appearance was as a contestant on the MTV game show Remote Control.
He came in second to a kid named Puck.
Peter dusted himself off from this defeat and went on to win a national stand up search naming him The Funniest College Student in America. After numerous appearances on stand-up comedy shows on MTV, VH-1, Comedy Central and A&E, he went on to become the Host of NBC’s Friday Night. Perhaps his shining moment was being named Anal Newcomer of the Year in 1999. Just seeing if you were paying attention.
Peter recently appeared on CBS’s Late, Late Show with Craig Kilborn. In addition to television, Peter quickly became the Host of Morning Sickness, his own nationally syndicated morning radio program on the Comedy World Radio Network, after starting out as a writer.
He has also contributed material to The Howard Stern Radio Program.
Somehow he was lucky enough to find his beautiful wife, Teresa, and trick her into marrying him. Luck struck two more times with the birth of their sons Jack and Miles.
All is good in his neighborhood. Just tell his three dogs to quit barking. At the present time, Peter continues to make people laugh...
