London based Alternative Stand-up comedian Peter Bazely is from a family of priests but is yet to find a way to make that fact funny.
Bazely has been in the final of three new comedian competitions over the years and won none of them.
Peter sights his influences as Andy Kaufman, Stewart Lee and Steve Coogan to name a few.

Peter sites his debut Edinburgh Fringe Show Crying by a Bench (2014) as a critical success. The show was performed outdoors and consisted of some Stand-up comedy and some crying, but importantly (says Peter) it was always by a bench.
Peter Bazely cut an elegant figure, about 9ft tall and two inches wide with a dinky guitar and a unflashy confidence, trying to win himself a girlfriend with some whole-audience participation. His short songs were properly musical and not the sort of ditty that could be easily learned in a day, like so many so-called musical comedians. His presence and composure on stage should take him far, as he had instant authority with the audience.
review by Julia Chamberlain for Chortle December 2016
Peter Bazelys comedy set, fresh from the Edinburgh Fringe, was incredibly dry, which was much needed, after heavy rain. This 20-minute set was described as not so much comedy, more a cry for help. Bazely Mixed songs, poems, jokes, and a comic twist on evangelism. His masterful, self-deprecating, and droll tone brought tears of laughter to those in the Canopy Stage.

Everything was going wrong and I started to think maybe thats how its meant to be,
like a show where everything that can go wrong will go wrong, although the breakdown
he (Peter Bazely) was having seemed real.

The excitement dipped a little when dour Peter Bazely walked on, fringe in his eyes and head down. Bazely had a hint of Joe Wilkinson about him, but was less of a social misfit. Despite being very lo-fi he interacted well with the audience and had a winning unexpected Jehovahs Witness gag lurking in the middle of his set. Distinctive stuff which earned him joint third place.

Judging the 2015 Musical Comedy Awards Final
Opening act Peter Bazely didnt immediately add a huge amount to the nervously deadpan, delivering-to-the-floor style of low-energy comedy, singing and talking dryly about loneliness, although towards the end of his short set, a one-man sketch about white van men punctured through the pallor of awkwardness.
