Pete Johansson is someone I always love to run into because when I see him it always results in intelligent lofty conversation. He has never been one to waste his time on small talk chit chat as his brain has more value to offer and he has never been one to bullshit anyone. 


Since I first met Pete we have had epic wine drinking evenings where we dissected the world's problems and laughed ourselves silly until the sunrise. He is a part of the Canadian comedy collective of what I consider to be Canada's finest comedians who make their home currently in London.


The philosophical nature of his comedy is why I am a fan of his work but it is his dedication to squeezing every drop of fun out of life is what attracts me to him as a friend. 


He was in Edinburgh for this year's Fringe festival where I got to spend many great nights talking and hanging out with him but we did not get to sit down and record this conversation until I was in London performing at the SOHO theater. As The Kings Of Leon sing about London "Those rainy days ain't so bad when you're the king." 


One of the reasons I love to go to London other than the fact that it is one of the comedy capitols of the world is because of the brain nourishment I get from talking with genius friends of mine like Pete Johansson. He always tours worldwide as I do and aside from that he and I share a curiosity about life and attaining higher plains of love and consciousness. 


It is my pleasure to present to you now the one and only Pete Johansson!
