A highly distinctive performer and deft writer of finely crafted jokes, Peter Brush unassumingly takes the stage with his slight bespectacled frame and scruffy hair, before consummately conquering it with an arsenal of razor sharp quirky one-liners and peerlessly original routines, all delivered in an amusingly awkward fashion.
Peter has been a finalist in a variety of local and national comedy competitions including the BBC New Comedy Award 2013, as well as winning the Harrogate Comedian of the Year 2012. He has also written for BBC Radio 4’s ‘The News Quiz’, ‘The Show What You Wrote’ and ‘Newsjack’, and supported Arthur Smith during his 2013 tour.
He currently performs at weekend level (or paid 20 minute sets) for: Highlight/Jongleurs, The Stand, The Frog & Bucket, Manford's Comedy Clubs, Kill For A Seat, Rob Riley Productions, Toby Jones Productions, Buzz Comedy (Agraman), XS Malarkey and various others.
