Most recently we have sympathised with Peter as Brett - Kim's estranged husband in ABC`s Kath and Kim. Brett is a computer geek, a bit of a pants man who is deeply in love with Kim. Brett considers himself a Mr Average that is lucky enough to have a horn bag of a wife and he can't believe his luck at being married to her.
