Peter Rowley

Peter Rowley (aka Harrison Rowley) has played offsider to many Kiwi comedy legends, including McPhail, Gadsby and Billy T. His career spans comic and serious roles in 40+ productions, including voicing the dog in Footrot Flats: A Dog's (Tail) Tale. Rowley made his debut in landmark 70s sketch show A Week of It. Later he joined the ensembles of McPhail and Gadsby and The Billy T. James Show. In 1994 he got equal billing alongside comedian Pio Terei in Pete and Pio, following it with Letter to Blanchy.

He has the ability to be numerous characters all rolled into one. He’s very funny.
