Pete's Big comedy plans
13:30 29 September 2006
'Big Brother' winner Pete Bennett wants to become a stand-up comedian.
The Tourette's sufferer - whose comedy antics in the house included walking around with a flowerpot on his head - thinks he has what it takes to make crowds laugh.
He said: "I'm looking into becoming a comedian. I am figuring out that you just have to be yourself when you're on stage. And people laugh at me anyway when I'm being myself."
The 24-year-old - who won the show's £100,000 cash prize - says he could be as successful as his comedic hero, actor Jim Carrey.
He is quoted by Britain's Daily Star newspaper as saying: "I used to look up to Jim Carrey as a kid. I thought he could give me some kind of hope because to me, he is a bit Touretty. That's why I love him so much."
Jim Carrey is best known for starring in comedies like 'Liar, Liar', 'Dumb and Dumber' and 'The Mask'.
