About Pete Correale
If you listen to comedian Pete Correale for about five minutes -- or less -- you'll have no doubt about where he's from.
The delivery and the accent are pure New York. Born and raised on Long Island, he still mines the Big Apple for a lot of his material. He's a huge Yankees' fan, and says one of his primary life goals is to one day sit down for a few beers with Billy Joel.
Moreover, it was with another Long Island product, "Saturday Night Live" veteran Jim Breuer, that Correale first insinuated himself into the national consciousness. The name of their Sirius Radio show was "Breuer Unleashed," but the program unleashed Correa, as well.
Now 39, he is one of those overnight success stories that took 15 years to happen. Over the last few years, he has popped up on the late-night sets of David Letterman, Jay Leno and Carson Daly. Pete was recently named by Entertainment Weekly as one of the top 10 comics to watch.
This spring, he launched his own show on Comedy Central, "The Things We Do For Love." He has performed on stages from Las Vegas to Lebanon.
