Keynote speaker anounced: Peter Brown

Peter Brown has spent most of his career as a host and producer with CBC Radio in Edmonton. He was the long-time host of the afternoon radio show, Radio Active. He's also been heard on the national airwaves, hosting That Saturday Show and The Circuit: Your Summer Festival Pass, and as a correspondent for Q, Sounds Like Canada, the Roundup and Morningside.

For the past few years, Peter has been producing the sketch comedy program The Irrelevant Show, which is based in Edmonton and airs nationally on CBC Radio One. The show has toured the country, and won two Canadian Comedy Awards and a medal at the prestigious New York Festivals. The new season is airing Saturday afternoons at 1:00, and Sunday evenings at 6:30.

He has hosted many awards evenings and conferences, including the annual Safety Codes Council of Alberta AGM in Banff.

Educated at the University of Saskatchewan and the University of Cambridge, Peter began working with CBC Saskatchewan as a reporter, host and resident comedy writer. He then worked as a producer on the national arts magazine The Arts Tonight before moving to Edmonton in the mid-nineties.

Peter has a background in comedy writing and performance. He's performed at the Edmonton and Edinburgh Fringes (and was featured on BBC radio's Best-of-the-Fringe showcase), and is a regular performer with Edmonton’s improvised soap opera Die Nasty.

Peter’s hobbies include writing about himself in the third person. He really enjoys doing that.
