Backstage Pass: An Interview with Comedian Pete George

Posted By on Tue, Jul 7, 2015 at 12:52 PM

A Cleveland native, comedian Pete George has come a long way since the days when he would open for a local magician. George, who got his start in show business as a lead guitarist in a Cleveland based ’80s rock group he says wanted to be like the band A Flock of Seagulls and called themselves A Peck of Peckers, has now played some 7500 shows over the course of a 20-year career.


He’s also had roles in The Shawshank Redemption and The Majestic and has made appearances on Blood Relatives, Tabloid, Night Shift, Now That’s Comedy and several national commercials including Audi and nick@nite. He also has a television show about his life in development and has released the comedy CD, Comedy You Can Dance To. He performs at the Hard Rock Rocksino’s Club Velvet at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday and has shows scheduled through Sunday. He stopped by our office this morning to talk about his career and what we can expect from the upcoming shows.
