Peter Kay announces return to stand-up comedy with first live tour in 12 years

Peter Kay has announced his return to stand-up comedy with his first live tour in 12 years.

The 49-year-old comedian, who has barely appeared in the public eye for the past four years, will embark on an arena tour that runs from December to August 2023.

This will be his first live tour since 2010, when he scored the Guinness World Record for the best-selling record of all time, performing to more than 1.2 million people.

His return was announced during promotional time during the series premiere event of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! on ITV.

He said: “It’s good to get back to what I love to do most, stand-up comedy, and if there’s ever a time when people need a laugh, it’s now.

“And with the cost of living at an all-time high, fares start from £35 – the same price as on my previous tour in 2010.”

Kay will begin her tour on December 2 at the Manchester AO Arena before visiting locations including Birmingham, Liverpool, Sheffield, Belfast, Newcastle, Glasgow and Dublin.

His run will end on 11 August 2023 at Sheffield Utilita Arena.

Following the announcement, Kay’s official website appears to have been briefly down due to increased online traffic.

Kay, from Bolton, has gone largely unnoticed in recent years.

He returned to the stage in August 2021 for two special charity events to raise money for Laura Nuttall, then 20 years old with a malignant brain cancer called glioblastoma multiforme.

There was also a brief comeback in January 2021 when he appeared on BBC Radio 2 to chat with Cat Deeley – who was working after Graham Norton left the station – about his love of music, mixtape and musical Mamma Mia.

He also made a surprise appearance at the charity screening of the series Car Share in 2018.

Kay canceled her last tour in December 2017, citing “unforeseen family circumstances”.

In the last few years, Kay has wowed fans with the hit TV series Car Share and his Bafta Award-winning stand-up routine.
