Peter Funt is a speaker and columnist, continuing the Funt Family tradition of making people smile–while examining the human condition. After 20 years hosting the landmark TV series “Candid Camera,” Peter currently writes frequent op-eds for The Wall Street Journal and New York Times as well as his weekly column, distributed by the Cagle Syndicate. His new book is titled "Cautiously Optimistic." Peter's writing and public appearances contain the same pointed social observations that have made “Candid Camera” so popular since its invention by his dad, Allen, back in 1947. Peter was editor and publisher of the television magazine On Cable. He authored the book "Gotcha!" for Grosset & Dunlap on the lost art of practical joking. Peter’s essay on the evolution of television is included in “The Story of American Business,” published in 2009 by Harvard Business Press.
