As a comedian and writer living in New York City, Pete Bladel likes to pretend that he’s artsy. His background is anything but. A former college football player (despite never being very good at football), Pete based his whole career off of grit and scraptitude. He brings that same mentality to the stage, performing all over New York at places like Caroline’s On Broadway, Stand Up NY, and Gotham Comedy Club. A contributing writer for Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update, Pete has opened for some of his favorite comedians, including Dave Attell, Amy Schumer, John Mulaney, Neal Brennan, Colin Jost, and more. He also hosts a weekly podcast called “Comedy Jocks” where he and some fellow comics discuss the biggest stories in sports. Look him up online and become his new best friend.
