Peter Kay: Stand-up King

Peter Kay was crowned Britain's best stand-up comic this week.

Coronation Street viewers will remember Peter Kay as Shelley’s bumbling date Eric Gartside. Shelley agreed to go out with him following her break-up with bigamist Peter Barlow. After dinner, Eric and Shelley returned to his place where he lives with his overbearing mother. Everything went pear-shaped from there.

Peter Kay is a longtime Corrie fan and has this to say about the programme: “I’ve been brought up with it all my life and it amazes me, everything stops when you hear the theme music at 7.30pm.”
