Pete Dominick is a Stand Up Comic, radio host, activist and staunch environmentalist. He’s best known for his daily national public affairs show on SIRIUSXM, “Stand Up with Pete Dominick.” The daily 3-hour show has been airing for over eight years, which regularly features some of the biggest names in politics, journalism, academia and entertainment. In 2015 he created developed and launched the “Insight” channel at SiriusXM described as “Inspiring Talk with A Sense of Humor”  – because he believes “comedians do news better.”

The show invites experts on to cover a wide range of topics – from parenting to politics to environmental concerns. Nature is Pete’s true passion, and preserving it is his primary driving force.

If you listen to his show you’d know.  He’s been accused of spending a disproportionate amount of time discussing issues related to climate change, sustainability, conservation and wildlife.  But he believes an early connection to nature is key. Being a father of two daughters, Pete speaks to parents regularly about the importance of keeping nature at the center of their children’s lives. He, along with many experts, believe “If children develop an appreciation for their world early on, they’ll want to preserve it.”

Pete’s keynote environmental speeches blend humor, wit and intellect to deliver a poignant and stimulating message, making him a sought after speaker for many organizations and events.

Pete ends his radio show everyday asking his audience to be the change they want to see in the world. Pete’s home is solar powered, his hyprid car runs on solar, and he is now an amateur gardener with his very own compost.
