Pete Geist is a 12-year-old trapped in the body of a 36-year-old man. If Geist were an accountant that might be a problem, but for Pete Geist, a professional comedian, it’s a good thing. Geist has been performing his one-man show for 17 years and has been featured at the International Children’s Festival in Virginia, the National Theatre’s Family Series in Washington, D.C., and the Goodwill Games in New York, among other venues throughout the United Sates, Canada, and Europe. Pete Geist performs 150-200 shows per year and uses magic, pantomime, juggling, and physical comedy to entertain and amuse his audience.
Growing up Pete Geist, who was always a bit of a class clown, had a life-altering epiphany when he was about 9 years old. Geist ventured into a magic shop at the local mall; there he encountered a magician who performed tricks in the back of the shop. “I saw this guy do a trick with a sponge ball and something inside me just clicked,” Geist said. Pete thought to himself “this is something that I can do.” Geist’s comedic training began with his father. “My dad is a real joke teller. He’s a pretty funny guy,” said Geist, who remembers watching old variety shows, like “Dean Martin’s Celebrity Roasts”, with his father. This laid the foundation for Geist’s future comedy career.
When he was 14, Pete Geist got a summer job at a local amusement park picking up trash and cleaning. The real bonus came when he was able to perform his comedy and magic act on weekends at the park. He worked about 30 hours picking up trash, doing heavy work, sweating and getting dirty, and when he got his first paycheck, it was about $60. For one Saturday show, he earned $100 and he was doing what he loved. That is how Pete Geist got started in the business.
For the next few summers, Pete Geist continued to work at the amusement park honing his skills. After graduation from high school, he toured the country for 18 months with a fellow entertainer, who performed a ventriloquist act. Having gained a wealth of experience, Geist began to market his act, known professionally as “GEIST”, and found steady employment appearing at schools, business functions, and various performing arts centers around the country. Geist’s performance is mirrored after European clowns who rely on physical humor and not the typical American clowns who sport the red hair and big floppy shoes.
Pete Geist is also well known as the Wacky Waiter and he performs magic, juggling, physical comedy, comic improvisation, and eccentric dance.
