Peter Kay Review Summary: Comedian’s First Live Show In 12 Years Entitled ‘Catnip’ For Fans

Peter Kay left fans and critics in hysterics during his first tour date in 12 years.

On Friday (December 2), the 49-year-old comedian returned from the spotlight after an extended hiatus.

Kay’s tour kicked off at Manchester’s AO and as he took the stage, the comedy star was greeted with a standing ovation that left him emotional.

“How am I supposed to do comedy now?” he said through tears. “I can’t believe you made me cry.”

Addressing his absence from the stage, Kay told the audience, “I love you too, in a way you’ll never know. I’ve been looking forward to this for five years.”

Kay was originally scheduled to tour in 2017 but canceled for reasons he never revealed. Friday’s show was the first of 110 arena dates the Bolton star will play over the next two and a half years.

The guard gave the set four stars, dubbed it “Catnip” for his fans, and wrote: While the set never directly addresses the reasons for Kay’s temporary disappearance from public life, there is a section on his recent health problems. Comically, it’s the strongest part of the show when Kay rolls his eyes as he asks the anesthetist for a selfie, then recounts the humiliation of his recent kidney stone surgery.”

The Telegraph also gave the show four stars, writing, “Anyone worried that their funny bones would be creakier than usual, rest assured: Kay once again delivers the goods, though remarkably similar to what came before – the package he offers is one of comfort rather than nervous challenge.”

It was 4 stars out iNews, whose review read, “When the lights came on for a while, I was ecstatic, not ecstatic. This was the Peter Kay I saw on TV as a kid. I could watch this kind of comedy in the comfort of my own home. The second half allayed any concerns about irrelevance.”

In the meantime, The times gave the set three stars, writing, “What started out with a great sense of event became anecdotal and meandering. A feeling of “is that it?” began to sink.”
