As a writer/creator, Petey co-wrote, co-produced and starred in the hit webseries Meals with Mary, a Dame Edna-meets-Ina Garten comedy cooking show, based around irreverent 86-year-old vaudevillian character, Mary Dolan. They've recently finished a pilot, THEM, centered around two trans/nonbinary artists in Los Angeles, as well as recently wrote and starred in Somerville, about a group of Massholes looking for redemption, love, and wicked good pahties.
As a live performer, you can catch Petey in stand-up and improv shows around town, or as the host of The Mary Dolan Show, a comedic variety show that is a "heroic defiance of good taste" (Weekly Dig). Described by NPR as “fearless onstage… subversive and versatile”, Petey is an enigmatic live performer, and pretty darn cute to boot.

"Just as Wiig and McCarthy typify a new brand of... performer, whose humor is broad and daring and whose films flout Hollywood stereotypes by valuing friendship and self-fulfillment over romance, Gibson represents an even more radical breed of comedian. They* defy easy classification, in terms of both gender and genre. Are they a drag performer? A character actor? A stand-up? An improviser? Petey's ambiguous presentation and willingness to toy with gender make them at once subversive and versatile." -WBUR.org
