"I would like to thank Peter More for being hilarious."
-- Joanna Ut-Seong Sio, "Modification and Reference in the Chinese Nominal"

Born in Kent in the UK, he has lived the last 10 years in Amsterdam. Naturally humorous, everyone smiles when he speaks Dutch. Once upon a time he had conversations about football in Mandarin but these days he can barely tell the difference between his mother and a horse. He has been on Dutch TV and Slovenian radio. He performs improvised comedy, acts, does stand-up, teaches, voices over and gets obsessed with bands. Number of celebrities he has nearly thwacked or walked right through currently stands at 4.

Mustard

Peter enjoys most forms of putting pen to paper and finger to plastic square, but especially loves gags, sketches, humorous essays and travelogues. He has a mad scientist approach to words, believing they can be, under the right conditions, mixed, compounded, extracted and cloned. New words can be created from bits of old ones. They can even be brought back from the dead.
