Peter Kay Gets Ovation At Comeback Appearance

Peter Kay Gets Ovation At Comeback Appearance

Comedian Peter Kay got a rapturous response at his first stage appearances since unexpectedly cancelling his UK tour four years ago.

Kay was appearing onstage for two Q&As at the Manchester Apollo with all profits will go to the Doing It For Laura & The Brain Tumour Charity.

The two back-to-back shows sold out within minutes of going on sale. 

Laura Nuttall was 18 and in her first term at Uni when, after a couple of headaches and a routine eye test, she was given the devastating diagnosis of Glioblastoma, a grade 4 brain cancer with a prognosis of 12-18 months.
 
She has since been through 2 brain surgeries, 30 sessions of radiotherapy and 12 months of chemotherapy and soon exhausted all the treatment options available in the UK.

Her family identified experimental immunotherapy available in Germany and Laura’s been making regular trips out to Cologne when Covid has allowed. She is now 2.5 years post diagnosis and has just completed her second year at Manchester University.

At the show Peter Kay got an ovation as soon as he walked onstage. According to reports the comedian said that being back onstage was like  "getting in a hot bath".

He said that "I've never in my life had a standing ovation when I came on. I'm going to go away for four more years."

Answering questions from the audience he said that he had written two Christmas special episodes of his hot C4 show Max and Paddy, co-starring Paddy McGuinness, but that they had never got round to making them.

Kay has not made many appearances since unexpectedly cancelling his last UK tour. He recreated his iconic Comic Relief music video for his version of Tony Christie’s hit, “(Is This The Way To) Amarillo” for the BBC's Big Night In night in April 2020 and also put togther an audio version of Car Share.
