As always, this Late Night event is free and funded by the Student Activities Fee.Pete Lee picturePete Lee might be the nicest person in New York City, but that’s because it’s impossible to sound aggressive with a Wisconsin accent.

Thanks to his highly rated Comedy Central Presents half hour special, Pete has packed venues at over 500 colleges and universities across the country. Pete has also been a standout on NBC’s Last Comic Standing and played a doctor on the CBS soap opera As the World Turns. His hit YouTube series titled Pete Lee’s Internet Freak Show attracted the attention of television executives. He was quickly hired to be a writer and cast member on FUSE TV’s Video on Trial and cast member on VH1’s Best Week Ever. Pete is a rising star in the college market and on television, but he is also really fun to have dinner with at your town’s Applebee’s.
