Welcome to Pete Johansson.com!

Its June 2024, and the last update on my site is 2017.

Where did I go?

In 2017, I reached new heights in my comedy career. I had just moved back to Canada after a decade in the UK, reviving my stand-up from a headliner to a top circuit performer. That year, I achieved major milestones including my fifth JFL gala, a Netflix special airing in 88 countries, and headlining Toronto’s Massey Hall on New Year’s Eve. Despite these successes, I was struggling with happiness and constant exhaustion. This led me on a transformative journey of self-discovery, health revelations, and academic pursuits. This month I am graduating from the University of Toronto with a B.Sc in Computational Cognition and Psychology. Please stay tuned as I share my story in the coming weeks and how it’s reshaped my life and comedy.

I left my last update in 2017 below to give some understanding to when I decided to change things for the better…

2017 Has already included The Hubcap Comedy Festival The Singapore Fringe festival, Kuala Lumpur’s Crackhouse Comedy Club, Angkor Wat and Comedy in Cambodia, Lot’s of Canadian clubs and colleges, London and Manchester Comedy Store shows, a Gala at Just for Laughs taped for CBC, a new show at the Edinburgh Fringe festival, and now I’m doing ontario dates of The Investor’s Group Comedy tour, as well as shows at JFL42 in Toronto! This Fall you can see me at various colleges and universities across the east coast, I’m Back in the UK for end of November at The Comedy Store in Manchester and London, then a show in Reykjavik, Iceland, and back to Canada to end the year doing New Years eve at Toronto’s Massey Hall!

And I’m always looking for fun new opportunities, so if you’re interested in bringing my unique socially progressive and intellectually challenging yet accessible comedy to your city or event, don’t hesitate to contact me and we can work together to create an event.
