Peter Kay at Live 8

Peter Kay is a stand up comedian from Bolton, England. Much of his early days were spent in dead-end jobs. He earned a living as a steward at Manchester Arena, a cinema usher, even a mobile disc jockey.

When Peter Kay eventually tried his luck at stand up comedy he found that is was these dead-end jobs that had furnished him with an almost endless supply of characters and situations to draw on for material.

Within a year of launching himself onto stand up comedy circuit, Peter Kay won the 1997 Channel 4 'So You Think You're Funny?' competition. From there Peter Kay began his rise to the top. Along the way he received a Perrier nomination, the Big Breakfast, The Peter Kay Thing, sell out tours, and the British Comedy Awards.

Peter Kay co-produced, co-wrote, and starred in several roles in a collection of six individual comedies entitled That Peter Kay Thing. The programs were narrated by Andrew Sachs and shot it what was called "mockumentary" style.

The project was filmed in and around Bolton and in it Peter Kay played 15 characters, including the town's oldest paperboy and a psychotic ice cream man. This distinctive hybrid of comedy and drama, merged with documentary, won Peter the Best New Comedy Series at the British Comedy Awards 2000. The success of the show led to the now legendary Phoenix Nights, which has attracted a huge following.

Peter Kay was voted among the top 50 comedy acts by fellow comedians and insiders. He has had a cameo role in Coronation Street in January 2004. IN November 2004 we saw the launch of the spin-off series Max and Paddy's Road to Nowhere in which Kay reprised his role as Phoenix Nights' bouncer Max.

Peter Kay has also released several live DVDs including Live At The Bolton Albert Halls. And Live at The Top of the Tower.

Peter Kay's film appearances have included roles in 24 Hour Party People (2002) and The League of Gentlemen's Apocalypse (2005). Kay promoted the re-release of Tony Christie's 1971 hit Is This the Way to Amarillo on 14 March 2005, for the charity Comic Relief. The song was made famous after Max and Paddy did a sing-along in a scene in Phoenix Nights. They made appearances in a new promotional video, along with Brian Potter and Kay himself. On Sunday, 20 March 2005, the single reached number one in the UK Singles Charts, and stayed there for 7 consecutive weeks.

Peter Kay recently performed at Bolton's Reebok Stadium to open for Elton John, and appeared as a host at the London Live 8 concert in Hyde Park on 2 July 2005, and at the July 6th event in Edinburgh, Scotland.
