He has brought out another christmas DVD of stuff he has released twice before and his tickets for his tour are £40 quid each this guy must be the greediest comic around. I bought tickets for Frankie Boyle and Lee Mack that cost less for the two and as far as i am concerned they are both funnier than Kay. haws anyone on here bought tickets for Peter Kay

An very funny guy at the time, but as you say recycled his first act so many time its becoming a joke in itself.

Enough sheep out there to get tickets at £40 each. He is a greedy bloke.

£15 for John Bishop and £18 for Lee Mack looks like the future for me. Will keep an eye out for Jason Manford too.

Maybe, only poor men can't afford to see Peter Kay so we have to go see Manford instead.

Heh, fair enough smile.gif I've only ever seen him on that 8 out of 10 cats, and he just seems to be trying to be just like Kay, but less funny.

JB is only £12 down our way - in Epsom. You going to see him in Livepool or Warrington? If so, let me know what he's like and I just may book for Epsom, which is much later in his tour.

Runcorn in March, will let you know. £12 isn't a gamble by the way. He is very funny indeed.

Went to see Jason Manford last weekend at Liverpool.

Really enjoyed it, thought he was very funny. Also he stopped in the bar for ages after and had time to have a chat with anyone!

Agreed. I have tickets to go and see him next year. I went to see Jimmy Carr on Friday night, not as good as previous years but still enjoyed it.

Cheers for the heads up about John Bishop, I'll try to get to see him in Derby.

Can't remotely agree with that. His style is right for shows like Mock, but his material is all one liners, relying on shock humour rather than anything particularly intelligent.

The best on the circuit at the moment, you're looking at Adam Hills, Russell Kane, Jason Byrne and Mark Watson.

the same as football comedy is about opinions I like a broad range of comedy from shock comedy like FB or silly one liners like Stewart Francis or Milton Jones. Your opinion is wrong by the way biggrin.gif

Saw Jason Manford last year and he was very funny, think I paid £15.

He's just putting his tour dates in for next year so keep an eye out. I subscribe to his twitter and facebook and he's a real genuine bloke.

Can be a bit similar to Peter Kay but I wouldn't pay £40 for Kay.

Are you allowed any opinions on here? I'm sure a topic has been wiped from last night as well, pathetic.

Anyway, £40 a ticket is shocking but like someone said, plenty of sheep and it has sold out I believe.

Peter Kay is an odious t**t. The 'gag-pie' won't be getting any of my money.

If you want to go watch a robotic, mechanical comedy show that literally doesn't deviate one word off script then go ahead. I prefer to watch clever comedians that have the ability to evolve their comedy show to show.

To call Mountford a 'poor-mans' Peter kay isn't fair, what exactly are you basing that on? Let me guess, the fact he's slightly over-weight and from a similar area?

Twenty dates at the MEN Arena? Mental, though not surprising. There'll be a lot of people there that have never seen live comedy before, I don't doubt. Been a few years since I watched the routines that he's released on DVD every Christmas for the past half-decade but, fair play, he had some very funny material in there, or at least I recall it as such. Phoenix Nights was genuinely excellent too, That Peter Kay Thing showed flashes of genius, and Max & Paddy was throwaway but fun. Since then, though, he seems to have disappeared up his own backside and that Britain's Got The Pop Factor thing last year and the subsequent flogging of his Geraldine character were just poor.

Wouldn't mind seeing what his new show is like, but £35-odd plus fees a pop is just too much for live comedy really; you'll get just as many laughs with a decent comedian for a £12 ticket, and in a more personable setting too. From the press release that preceded these tickets going on sale, I don't hold out too much hope for it being anything special and for the money, I'd rather just rent out the inevitable DVD that hits the shelves in the Autumn.

Saw Jason Manford last year in St Helens and he was alright. Had probably seen his funniest moments already on various TV appearances but there was some good audience banter, and the Peter Kay comparisons are a bit lazy for the most part although they're both ploughing a similar seam of observational comedy. Adam Hills is the best I've seen this year, Mark Watson was good too though his set was a little brief, Rhod Gilbert's "Mince Pie" show which has just come out on DVD was epic and good, ranty fun. Will be seeing Frankie Boyle next year, but funny as he is on Mock The Week, I'm not sure how good he'll be stretched out over 90mins or so. A lot of his TV-based material is based around so-and-so looking like such-and-such crossed with such-and-such-else. Can't argue with the name of the show as being the best I've seen for a while though.

I found Peter Kay's DVDs hilarious at 16, and I think that's about a fair review of Peter Kay.

No question that he's undeservedly full of himself now though. He's not very popular amongst comedians and I think that says a lot, as they largely stick together. I fear Michael McIntyre, who was an excellent comic a few years ago, may be heading in a similar sell-out direction, but not in quite the same regard.

Peter Kay has resorted to dressing as a woman and making observations that we all make about the X Factor. He's now lowest common denominator humour, and he was never much above that. Funny enough when you're young and not really into comedy, but pretty weak in comparison to scores of other comedians who'll only charge you a tenner or so.
