Get To Know More About Funny Man Peter Kay

The English comedian Peter Kay has made his name as a stand up comedian, actor, director and writer. Right at the beginning of his career as a fresh comedian he won the North West comedian of the year award in the year 1996. He had only performed at two gigs by then. That was just the beginning. After that he has won 4 Royal Television Society Awards, 4 British Comedy Awards which included the award of writer of the year and also the Rose D’Or. In 2009 he bagged the very prestigious BAFTA/LA Award for Britain’s Got The Pop Factor.

In the year 1997 he won the So You Think You’re Funny contest. Later in 1998 he made his first appearances as a stand-up comedian at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. He got nominated at for the Perrier Award at this festival. But before actually pursuing his career as a comedian Kay has done a number of odd jobs like packing toilet papers in a factory, as a mobile disc jockey, at a bingo hall, in a video shop and even a super market. Other than these he worked in a garage for almost six years in between all these jobs. Peter believes that he was destined to only make people laugh and that’s why he couldn’t stick to any job for long. Although he dint fulfill his child hood ambition which was to be a bin man, he surely is one unique comedian who has a qualification in stand up comedy. This qualification he achieved while giving his BTec in Media Performance Studies.

There are some trademarks that are observed in all his performances like playing many characters in the same show at the same time or even including a fictional radio station called “Chorley FM" most of his projects. It was in 2000 that due to heavy promotion his show ‘Live at the Top of the Tower’ made him enter the mainstream. He made his first television appearance in an episode of New Voices which was a show for promoting upcoming comic talents. That Peter Kay Thing was written, directed and starred by him. It was completely based on all his early life experiences during the time he worked in those menial jobs. The DVD of ‘His Mum Wants A Bungalow’ still holds the record for selling the maximum numbers compared all British comedy stand up DVDs. His TV show ‘Peter Kay's Phoenix Nights’ was an instant hit because of a cast full of stand up comics.

He has stated that out of all jobs he did before turning to stand up comedy, he like the Usher’s job at a local cinema in Bolton. This was because he got to see all the movies for free, got free sweets and even told the people who were just going in for the movie about its ending. Due to marvelous comedy timing Peter Kay tickets are selling like hot cakes. Now he performs on stage shows while touring which are named as "The Tour that Doesn't Tour Tour” and also 'The Tour That Doesn't Tour...Now On Tour...The Farewell Tour'.
