We are very excited to welcome comedy maestro Pete Henderson for representation in UK & Europe.
Pete is an award-winning and revered comedy director with a plethora of outstanding work for some of the world’s biggest brands. He likes to call his style ‘quiet comedy’, where cinematic and beautifully observed performances get struck with left-field curve balls to deliver hilarious punchlines. Pete rocks normality with the unexpected, knowing how to land perfect comedy timing and compelling storytelling.
His directing has gained notoriety for campaigns for the likes of Coca-Cola, McDonald’s, General Motors and Panasonic. After getting his directing career off to a good start by winning Saatchi & Saatchi’s Best New Director and featuring in their New Director Showcase at Cannes, Pete has collected many awards, including the coveted Best of Show/Gold for Online Film at the Marketing Awards.
Pete Henderson | “As my first foray into the UK, I am so excited to join Park Village because their roster is world-class. The work, that amazing work. All of it is so inpiring, and the company itself so multifaceted and dynamic, I don't know where one project starts and another finishes... the creativity is kaleidoscopic. I'm looking forward to the ride.”
Leonie Ellis, PV Business Development & EP | "I love Pete’s naughty tone of comedy. His observed, characterful builds are masterfully crafted, setting up punchlines that u-turn wonderfully, with rug pulls that make ideas sing. Along with Cameron Harris, he’s another delicious and experienced dollop of fresh comedy to the UK market. I’m sure his wit will resonate, and I can’t wait to see what he creates here"
Adam Booth, PV Managing Partner & EP | “Burn him. He’s a witch. Or perhaps a comedy wizard. Either way, Pete’s sharp wit and knack for character performances is a fantastic addition to the growing PV roster. Having found success shooting for a raft of well known brands in the US, we’re excited to introduce him exclusively to the UK.”
