Sharing a photo of himself giving the thumbs up, Helliar praised the “brilliant” Covid-19 vaccine for saving him from serious illness.

Helliar said he was now nearing the end of his quarantine person and feels “absolutely fine”.

“The worst it got was a mild cold,” he said.

Peter Helliar Career

Pete Helliar first came to the nation’s attention in 1999 as a cast member of Rove, Rove McManus’ ill-fated first series on the Nine Network. When the show went to Network TEN in 2000, Pete went with it, becoming an integral part of the Logie Award winning variety show until it wound up at the end of 2009 after ten historic years on Australian TV.  

In 2003, Pete took on Australian Rules football with After The Game, which became Before The Game in 2004. The following year Pete created Bryan Strauchan, Collingwood rookie and instant superstar. “Strauchanie” created an AFL sensation, picking up the code’s Personality Of The Year Award, getting his own car in the Grand Final Parade, and even being immortalised on his own official AFL Footy Card and winning Best On Ground at the 2009 EJ Whitten match.  

All the while Pete has been working as a stand up, touring to sold-out houses in Australia and New Zealand as well as hosting his own radio shows for Triple M and 2Day-FM and guesting regularly on Nova.   Writing has always been at the centre of everything Pete has done as a comedian.

After Rove was cancelled by the Nine Network in 1999 Pete started work on some film ideas, and in 2009 he found himself on the set of his very own feature film… In 2010 I Love You Too, produced by Princess Pictures and starring Brendan Cowell, Peter Dinklage, Yvonne Strahovski and Megan Gale was released.  

Pete also created It’s A Date, a comedy series which aired on the ABC in the second half of 2013. The series, produced by Princess Pictures, was nominated for an AACTA award and warmly received by the ABC audience. A second season of It’s A Date brought all-new awkward, beautiful, funny, sad dating scenarios into our lounge rooms in October 2014.

As well as writing and co-producing, Pete turned his hand to acting in and directing a number of episodes across both series.   2014 proved to be a super-busy year for Pete. In addition to writing, directing and co-producing IAD2, he joined the desk at The Project as a full-time co-host, replacing one of his best mates, Dave Hughes. Alongside his television commitments with The Project, Pete continues to tour the country with his live stand-up shows each year,
