“a thoughtful performer of smiles and warmth with flecks of disdain; he’s quick-thinking, with effortless confidence” - The Skinny
Since starting to perform in 2010, Pete Otway has quickly gained momentum, establishing himself as an extremely strong new act. As comfortable and confident as an MC as he is an act, he is booked regularly to do both, and was a recent finalist in the 2012 BBC New Comedy Awards.
