With comedian Pete Lee • Raised in Janesville, Wis., by divorced parents and a 19-inch television, Pete Lee was destined to pursue a career in entertainment. He was the first standup comedian to get a standing ovation on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” and it resulted in him appearing on the show three times in one year. 

Pete has also been seen on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing,” his own Comedy Central Half Hour Special, and CBS’ “The Late Show with David Letterman,” amongst many other appearances. Most recently, Pete became a writer/ cast member on the hit show “This Week at the Comedy Cellar” on Comedy Central, where he can be seen every Friday night at 10 p.m. CDT. Pete just moved to Los Angeles and launched a new podcast titled “Snugglestorm.” If you haven’t heard of Pete Lee yet, prepare to tell other people.
