Petey J. Gibson (Transparent, This Is Me) is a comedian, writer, and Groundlings-trained character performer based in Los Angeles. Most recently, 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.
When not touring as Mary nationally and internationally, Petey also writes, produces, and hosts The Mary Dolan Show, a beloved monthly (in LA)
and nationally touring variety show that is a "heroic defiance of good taste" (Weekly Dig). Petey is also a member of improv and sketch group Side Effects, spearheaded by legendary character actor Donovan Scott.
Described by NPR as “fearless onstage… subversive and versatile”, Petey is an enigmatic live performer, and pretty darn cute to boot.

"That fans might separate [Petey's character Mary Dolan's identity from Petey's real identity] is a tribute to Gibson’s skills as an actor and improviser" - The Boston Globe
"Just as Wiig and McCarthy typify a new brand of female 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. She defies easy classification, in terms of both gender and genre. Is she a drag performer? A character actor? A stand-up? An improviser? Her ambiguous presentation and willingness to toy with gender make her at once subversive and versatile." -WBUR.org
