Peter Greathouse was born in St. Louis, MO, and brought up in the Midwest tradition of good manners and non-stop athletics. His interests extended beyond sports and into the arts at an early age. From elementary school through college he studied theatre and films, and by age 17 had developed a love for fencing and stage combat.
Peter left St. Louis for LA to pursue his theatrical training. There he earned a BFA in Theatre Performance from Chapman University, as well as certification as an Advanced Theatrical Combatant from Dueling Arts International. During his classical training at Chapman, he took the opportunity to continue a long-standing interest with improvisational comedy and eventually made the leap to stand-up. He has studied all he can to be the most well-rounded actor he can be.
