Peter Rowsthorn is a high energy, fast-paced stand up comedian one minute and a measured character actor the next. A masterful MC of corporate and private functions, he has been performing his slick & blistering stand up for three decades.
Peter is an ambassador for the Friends of Nature Play WA and is the membership program's Number One Ticket Holder. He spent much of his childhood making his own fun. “I was a 70s child, so we were not expected home until dinner time,” he says. “We would run around the neighbourhood and make up things to do.” But Peter takes a different approach to his children. “Parents don’t have the courage to just let our kids go. With screens being so engaging, it can be harder to get them out of the house. We need to find something different to get them outside.”
Most recently, Peter has appeared regularly on "Thank God You're Here" series 1, 2, 3 and 4, popped up on "Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation" and was the host of the delightful “Can We Help” on the ABC. But Peter is probably still best known as long-suffering husband and pants-man Brett Craig on “Kath & Kim”.
Peter will bring his irrepressible energy and good-natured charm to the Children and Nature Conference in his role as MC.
