Zack Peter is a writer, comedian, host, health activist, and advocate for autism. 

 

Zack Peter isn't your average green-juice drinking millennial. As a writer, he has published a total of four books, with work featured on Yahoo!, Men’s Health, Bustle, People, and more. In between collagen-martinis, you can catch his signature wit and gift-of-gab as host and producer of the hit weekly podcasts, #NoFilter with Zack Peter and #Adulting: Life Hacks to Get Your Sh*t Together. He currently serves as the Executive Director for Jenny McCarthy’s autism foundation, Generation Rescue, and can be regularly seen on POPSUGAR and Maria Menounos’s AfterBuzz TV network.

As a comic, he has traveled around the country performing stand-up at comedy clubs, including the world-famous Hollywood Laugh Factory, The Comedy Store, and Gotham Comedy Club in NYC. 

His accolades include being named one of 2009's Teens That Inspire by Examiner.com, being awarded Outstanding Youth Volunteer by the Association of Fundraising Professionals, and a two-time WEGO Health nomination for the Hilarious Health Activist award.
