Versatile comedian, actor and writer Pete Zedlacher is an 18-year veteran of the comedy scene and one of the premiere headliners in the country. Zedlacher, who proudly hails from Wawa, a small mining town in Northern Ontario, draws heavily from his Canadian working-class roots. A graduate of the prestigious American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York, the intensive acting program helped him infuse a theatrical element into his stand-up. Now based in Toronto, Zedlacher has a Canadian Comedy Award, five Canadian Comedy Award nominations and two Gemini nominations to his credit. Most recently he won the Sirius XM's nation-wide comedy competition, earning him the title of Sirius XM's Top Comic.
