Saleh entered the world of comedy in 1990 under the alias Peter Salah (‘so people would think I was white’, he says). Since then, he’s performed in movies, on television and as a regular radio and talk show host, while also writing a book about his journey from Egypt and his life as an Arab on the Australian comedy circuit.
As a stand-up comedian, he’s performed at festivals all around the world, including Edinburgh, Montreal and The Melbourne International Comedy Festival. He has also won numerous awards, including two ARIA nominations for his live specials.
