Snook is Pete Soucy’s street-smart “corner-boy” character straight off the curb in downtown St. John’s, Newfoundland.
Fun-loving and fast-talking, Snook has entertained zillions on stage, radio and TV for well over 20 years. A former regular on CBC’s Here & Now, Madly Off in All Directions, and the Halifax Comedy Festival, Snook also hosted his own variety series Wicked Night Out, and now appears weekly on the NTV Evening News and annually at the Newfoundland Screech Comedy Festival.
An extensive ‘gig-list” includes major ad campaigns, special events, and dozens of corporate functions every year. After two successful home-videos, Snook’s Christmas CD was released in 2004. This home-run hit was followed by Snook’s Wicked DVD (2005), Snook’s Childhood CD (2006), Snook’s Christmas Concert DVD (2007), and Another Snook’s Christmas CD (2009).
Snook also tours with Jim Payne and Fergus O’Byrne in the musical comedy group WickedAltogether!
