Pete Lee 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 the last year. Pete also just released his new special "Tall, Dark, and Pleasant" streaming on SHOWTIME.

In 2005, Pete flew to New York to make his television debut on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend. Soon after moving to NYC, he was selected to perform at the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, where he was voted a standout performer. In 2008 Pete made his network television debut performing on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, finishing as a semi-finalist. That same year, he made his television acting debut on the CBS Soap Opera As The World Turns.

At the end of 2008, he shot his own Comedy Central Half Hour Special, which earned him a cult following at comedy clubs, and the opportunity to perform over the next ten years at 500 colleges across the country. In 2013, Pete was hired as a cast member on VH1’s Best Week Ever, where he was a writer and cast member for three seasons. That same year, he made his late night television debut on CBS’s Late Show with David Letterman.

Showing off his writing versatility, he was hired by the Duck Dynasty folks to be a writer/producer, and he helped develop the hit Duck Dynasty spin-off Going Siral. He also starred in a documentary titled I Need You to Kill that is now available on iTunes and Amazon. 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 11pm ET.
