Pete Bladel started doing stand-up in Washington, DC shortly after college and moved to New York a few years later, with a brief detour working one summer as a roadie for a friend’s pop-rock band (It’s a long story). He has performed in amazing venues like The Kennedy Center, The DC Improv, Carolines On Broadway, and the UCB Theatre.

Pete Bladel has worked with some killer comics, including Dave Attell, Amy Schumer, John Mulaney, and Michael Che. He’s performed in festivals all over the country, such as Laughing Skull, Laugh Your Asheville Off, and The Boston Comedy Arts Festival. He was also featured in an episode of truTVs Billy On The Street in the role he was always destined to play, Bro.

Carolines on Broadway is proud to present the Breakout Artist Comedy Series, a series which put the spotlight on the very best and brightest emerging stand-up comedians in their very own headlining show. These are the comedians that are currently plying their trade and honing their craft on their way to becoming the stars of tomorrow.
