The birth of comedy companions Pete and Brian occurred in February of 2003, the same month Mr. Rogers died (though both benefited mankind, these two events are unrelated).  After breaking up and getting back together approximately 67 times, their acclaimed oeuvre,  "Pete and Brian's One Man Show," was an official selection of the 2007 HBO US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen.  

 

Since then, Pete and Brian have written two almost-successful pilots for 20th Century Fox, amassed an almost-impressive online following by making a ton of web videos -- including "FCU: Fact Checkers Unit" for NBC.com -- and have written for numerous award shows, including the MTV Movie Awards.   Their short film "FCU: Fact Checkers Unit" (co-starring Bill Murray) was an official selection of the 2008 Sundance Film Festival, their film "The Definition of Sex" was an official selection of the 2007 SXSW Film Festival, and their video "Knock Knock" won the 2007 MySpace Short Film Contest.  So there.  

Currently, P&B are developing season two of “Fact Checkers Unit” for NBC.com, as well as projects with Ben Stiller's Red Hour Films and "Zombieland" director Ruben Fleischer.  Sans Brian, Pete can be seen playing the role of "Jim" in the Fox show "Traffic Light," as well as “Pritchard” in the upcoming Fox animated series “COPS: The Lost Tapes."  Sans Pete, Brian co-produced and co-starred in “I Am Having A Difficult Time Killing My Parents,” an official selection of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.  Sans each other, Pete and Brian are nothing.
