Peter Rogers is an improv performer and director who works primarily with The Hideout Theatre.


Prior to 2000, Peter's only experience with improv had been a number of improv games in high-school theater class, a 1997 trip to see Second City in Chicago, and an absolutely terrifying batch of improv games once in college. Peter saw his first improv show in Austin after getting a free ticket to a ComedySportz show at Northcross Mall from a comedy defensive driving class in May 2000. After that, he saw many more improv shows in town, and then he took the Hideout's first set of improv classes, from Shana Merlin, between 2000 and 2001. After that, Peter joined First Round Draft, the troupe that formed from the first batch of Hideout students. He left improv from 2004-2007, and then returned to do more shows, primarily at the Hideout.

Peter was a core cast member in The 42-Hour Improv Marathon and The 44-Hour Improv Marathon.


Peter has photographed nearly three hundred improv shows, though he is perhaps better known for videography, posting improv videos to vimeo almost weekly, and setting up The Austin Improv Vimeo Channel.
