American actor Peter Hulne was born on September 22, 1967 in Chicago, Illinois. Growing up with a knack for performance, he initially began playing impressions to his family. He kept that love through his school years, working on high school productions and focusing on his improvisational skills. He later graduated from Columbia College, carrying a major in advertising art and a minor in theater.
As a comedian, he found an affinity towards physical comedy. During his years in Chicago, he trained at the Piven Theater Workshop, The Second City, Improv Olympic and the Annoyance Theater. He also began doing television commercials and voiceover work. He got his first film role in 1996, when he starred in the comedy Celtic Pride. He has since played roles in films such as Can’t Stop Dancing, In My Life, Elf and Employee of the Month.
Hulne also has extensive television credits, playing guest roles in All That, Clubhouse and Scrubs. His first regular television stint was in the comedy show American Body Shop, where he played articulate but trapped body shop owner Sam. During his off time, he continues to do stand-up, performing with his improv group BeerSharkMice in Los Angeles.
