When Australians want a comedian that looks like Phillip Seymour-Hoffman they turn to Peter Helliar.

Pete first came to the nations attention in 1999 as a cast member of Rove, on the Nine Network. Award winning variety show until the show wound up at the end of 2009 after a historic ten years on Australian TV.

In 2003, Pete took on Australian Rules football with After The Game, which went on to become Before The Game in 2004. The following year Pete created Bryan Strauchan, Collingwood rookie and footy superstar in the making. Strauchan created an AFL sensation picking up the codes' Personality Of The Year Award, getting his own car in the Grand Final Parade, and even being immortalized on his own official AFL Footy Card and winning Best On Ground at the 2009 EJ Whitten match.

After Rove was cancelled by the Nine Network in 1999 Pete started work on some film ideas and in 2009 he found himself on the set of his very own feature film. In 2010 this first feature film, I Love You Too, starring Brendan Cowell, Peter Dinklage, Yvonne Strahovski and Megan Gale and produced by Laura Waters (Summer Heights High) was released.

All the while Pete has been working as a stand up, touring to sold out houses in Australia and New Zealand as well as hosting his own radio shows for Triple M and 2Day-FM.

In 2011 Pete returned to radio as co-host of Saturday morning show Cheap Seats on Classic Rock 91.50, as well as making regular appearances as Strauchanie on Nova Breakfast during the AFL season. He was a guest on a number of TV shows and due to his popularity on Spicks and Specks, Pete was asked back to take part in their finale show.

2012 sees Peter Helliar a busy man, kicking if off with a brand new stand up show called "Snazzy".
