Peet Torjussen

Peet is an actor, comedian, writer and voice-over performer based in York, specialising in interactive character comedy and improvisation. He has been performing in some capacity since the age of 8, as a member of Nottingham and later Harrogate Youth Theatres, going on to study Drama at Harrogate College and Communication and Performing Arts at York St John University.

He has worked on numerous professional and amateur productions including several video games and feature films. In addition Peet has, through his alter-ego Sir Dickie Benson, been performing stand-up comedy for over ten years, both as compère and comedian.

He is a frequent fixture at the Edinburgh Fringe, and can be seen performing in solo shows and as the host of the successful ‘The Midnight Cab’ at the Voodoo Rooms.

He was recently diagnosed with ADHD, which came as no surprise to anyone that knows him.
