Living Outside the Box

By 1985 Pete George had already established himself as one of Cleveland’s top lead guitarists, when he was called up to join the original alternative rock group, “Separate Checks”. Releasing two original songs and a music video during the height of the MTV era, the band used its fame to start the petition drive that succeeded in bringing the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame and Museum to Cleveland.


Around the same time, Pete’s quick wit and onstage banter, prompted for calls for him to try his hand at stand-up comedy. In all three of his first comedy competitions, Pete’s unique combination of musicianship and humor won him the top spot over the more experienced comedians.


By the 1990’s, Pete’s love of entertaining led to an acting career where he honed his skills performing in theater and numerous TV commercials.  Pete booked his first film, The Shawshank Redemption, where he worked alongside Hollywood heavyweights, Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins. Pete then went on the road fulltime where his original, unique style of stand-up & comedy music earned a large following of fans from across the country.  Pete eventually moved to Los Angeles in 2000.


Now, more than 9,000 comedy shows later, Pete George has headlined Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, the House of Blues and Hard Rock Casino in Cleveland, winning fans and critical acclaim. Along with the hundreds of comedy clubs, corporate events, colleges and military shows across the country, Pete was also a host of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp at the infamous Whisky a Go Go in Hollywood.  Currently, Pete can be seen as the lead in an International Audi commercial, guest-starring in “Blood Relatives”, “The Incredible Life of Darrell” for Warner Brothers and out in 2020, playing a drag queen in "A Social Distance" movie.
