Lazy comedy is what he excels at

The misheard song lyrics- the epitome of lazy comedy. Doesn't stop it being funny though 

Lazy comedy?

That's a fascinating concept.

To be able to raise a belly laugh in this day and age, with gentle observational comedy takes some doing.

His work on car share was masterful. 

Far more to the fella, and I reckon it takes intelligence and natural ability to make a success.

For me, I'd see a nodern "edgy" act as being no more difficult, and arguably easier.

Some of the comedy we're offered on TV nowadays is absolute pap.

Just home from the Arena. 

Solid show. A lot of references to old material but still enjoyable. Not a bad way to spend an evening.

£8.50 for a moretti can fuck off though

I was there too and I must admit, the only stuff I hadn’t heard before or a version of, was the fact his Nan had died.

Could have had a big game of Peter Kay bingo where each audience member marks off references to previous tours and shows.

Paddy McGuinness’s step brother married an old school friend and Paddy was Best Man. The speech was probably the funniest  20 minute stand-up routine I’ve ever heard. I was hurting laughing.

On that Take Me Out tv show he’s about as funny as gout but that’s probably a result of him not being his own scriptwriter.

First read that as funny as grout had to re-read.🤣… might have something to do with plumbers doing my bathroom up all week.

Went to watch him at the MEN on Friday.

Now, I love Peter Kay, especially his telly stuff. Flawless.

His stand up I’ve always thought was a bit average but funny and he’s tapped into something massively popular.

But, that show on Friday was really really poor.

30 minutes singing advert themes from the 1980’s? Misheard lyrics? I know he’s sticking to a formula but it needs refreshing. people were leaving well before the end.

He’s recovering from illness, which I don’t think helps with anything. It just feels like he’s forcing it.

Shame, really, but he gets a free pass for a body of work that’s basically perfect.

Yeah - that's why I'm saving it for the DVD/dodgy fire stick

Daughter went, group of them in their mid 20s. Half the show went straight over their heads.
