Peter is best known for his roles in ‘Spaced’ as Duane Benzie, a nemesis of Simon Pegg’s character Tim Bisley and the critically acclaimed ‘Look Around You’, which Serafinowicz starred in and co-wrote. Peter also starred alongside Vince Vaughan and Jon Favreau in the Hollywood blockbuster ‘Couples Retreat’ and Simon Pegg in ‘Shaun of the Dead’ as his ultra-professional flatmate, Pete.
He made his broadcasting debut in 1993 on Radio 1 show ‘The Knowledge’, a spoof documentary about the music industry and has since appeared on a number of other shows including, ‘Harry Hill’s Fruit Corner’, ‘Weekending’, and ‘Grievous Bodily Radio’ on Radio 4.

For his performances in this series, Serafinowicz was awarded the Best Entertainer prize at the 2008 Rose d’Or ceremony.
