Peter Kay’s ‘terrifying’ return to stand-up
PETER Kay has shared how ‘terrifying’ he finds stand-up after announcing his first live tour in eight years.
But despite his nerves, the Car Share star said he has missed getting up in front of an audience and can’t wait to try out lots of topical — and, in at least one case, potentially risqué — material.
‘I really miss it. I know how lucky I am to be making television series and have really loved these past few years working on Car Share, but I miss doing stand-up,’ he said.
‘As terrifying as it is, when it works there’s nothing more fun and exciting. Plus, a lot has happened in the last eight years, with Trump, Twitter — and my Nan getting her front bush trimmed at the age of 96.
‘I can’t wait to get back up on stage.’
The Bafta award-winning writer and actor follows up his record-breaking 2010 show with a 26-date tour, kicking off in Birmingham in April 2018.
Kay will also play two nights in Glasgow, four in Manchester, four at London’s O2 and two in Leeds in 2018.
In 2019, he will perform for two nights in Belfast, two in Nottingham, two in Dublin, two in Newcastle, two in Sheffield and conclude with two nights in Liverpool on March 18 and 19.
Tickets for the tour go on sale this Sunday at 10am
