Barry is the youngest of three sons in his family. He had an unusual and non0traditional childhood, as his family were building a ship for years and finally finished it when Barry turned five. The Peppers set sail and the ship became their home for the next five years as they traveled around the world, visiting such exotic places as Fiji, Tahiti, Hawaii and the Marquesas Islands. He was home-schooled by his parents, but they would also enroll him in public schools in those exotic places whenever possible. As a consequence of not having television on the ship and the fact that he grew up around Polynesian children who cherished dancing, singing and performing, he became interested in performing sketches as a form of entertainment. After a five-year cruise, the Peppers returned to Canada where Barry matriculated from high school and then graduated from college, majoring in Marketing and Graphic Design.
