Career driven since kindergarten Peter Kelamis did his first stand-up act in front of his grade 4 class - he solidified his stage ambitions with a plum role in his high school's version of "Grease".  Since then this hilarious entertainer has headlined The Montreal Comedy Festival, been featured on his own CBC  Special and headlined comedy clubs and theatres throughout North America.

In the mid 1980s, he enrolled at the University of British Columbia, taking a mix of psychology and drama classes. But schooling started to slip when he heard about a lunch hour amateur contest sponsored by Punchlines Comedy Club. "I heard you could win five bucks, and I've never looked back."

Peter excelled at improvisation in the Vancouver Theatre Sports company, all this led to his first headlining appearance at Punchlines Comedy Club within a year (extremely fast by even stand-up standards) and eventually he opened for such comics as Howie Mandel and Dennis Miller. The highlight of his career to-date: Improvising on stage one-on-one with Robin Williams. "Robin came up to me after the show and said, 'You're really, really funny.' I mean, I didn't go to him, he came to me!" In fact, there was a casting agent in the house at that gig, and he's barely stopped working since.

He was a hit at the Montreal Comedy Festival and toured widely across Canada. Along with his own Comics special on CBC, and a raft of on-going voice-over jobs, he has appeared in more than thirty films, television series, specials and movies-of-the-week.
