At the age of 17 Pete started out in his native Blackpool as a pit drummer with the popular Lancashire comedian Jack Storey. After graduating to the roles of ‘stooge’ and ‘feed’ he acquired various musical instruments and eventually joined the international comedy act Nuts & Bolts. Forming his own act he played such diverse instruments as trumpet, trombone, clarinet, banjo, tuba and penny-whistle. Over the years Pete has appeared with such top-line comedy stars as Jimmy Cricket, Danny LaRue, Ken Dodd, Norman Collier, Bernie Clifton and many others. Pantomime seasons have seen him as principal comic and later playing ‘Dame’. Pete’s other activities include a one-man show, giving talks about the days of Variety and providing the ‘Old Amos’ character for ‘The Dalesman’ magazine. His association with “We’ll Meet Again” goes back to the first tour / summer season in 2004. He is of course delighted to have been ‘called-up’ yet again!
