Peter Helliar

Peter Helliar is an Australian comedian, TV presenter and children’s author. He lives in Melbourne with his wife and three kids, and currently co-hosts the award-winning news and current affairs program The Project on Network Ten. Helliar plans on being the first human to travel back in time, and expects this to have happened by the time Frankie Fish and the Sonic Suitcase is published. Since first appearing on Rove Live in the late 90s, Helliar’s extraordinary entertainment and comedy career has spanned everything from radio to screenwriting, producing and co-starring in feature films (I Love You Too) and television series (It’s a Date), as well as creating a beloved AFL sensation in his alter-ego Bryan ‘Strauchanie’ Strauchan. Helliar’s most recent comedy tour, One Hot Mess, sold out shows in Australia and New Zealand.
