Biography

Petra Mede (born March 7, 1970) is a Swedish comedian and television host, having retired due to injury, from a previous life in the performing arts in Paris and Stockholm. She first stepped into the limelight due to her success at stand-up comedy at the Bungy Comedy competition in March 2005, but also largely from her subsequent roles in comic television shows like Morgonsoffan, Parlamentet and Stockholm Live, these being amongst Sweden’s most popular TV shows. In 2009 she was voted Sweden’s best female comedian and replaced Kristian Luuk as the host of Melodifestivalen, where the Swedish entry for the Eurovision Song Contest was chosen. Petra’s unique raw sense of humour led her to start her own Petra Mede Show on TV3 and today she continues to host A-list events, conferences, television shows and gigs all over Sweden.
