Zach Peterson has been described as everything from “An affable oddball” to “if Bruce Springsteen’s Nebraska album was a person.” This is because Zach writes jokes that have a unique mixture of thoughtfulness, absurdity and darkness, which can be heard on his debut album “Midwestern Jokes for the Americas” that was released in 2018. When he is not crisscrossing the United States performing at clubs, theaters, and where ever else will have him, Zach makes his home in Chicago, IL where he produces and hosts the Arguments and Grievances Podcast that has been featured at numerous festivals, on Audible.com, named “Best Variety show in Chicago 2014”by Chicago Magazine and called by The Chicago Tribune, “smart, high-stakes tomfoolery disguised in a brilliant, faux-brainy conceit…This show is a riot.” Zach has toured the country with the likes of Mary Mack, Dave Ross and Timmy Williams from The Whitest Kids you know, performing at festival like The Limestone Comedy Festival, The High Plains Comedy Festival, and The Laughing Skull Comedy festival among many more.
