Peter John Kay was born and brought up in Farnworth, Lancashire, where he attended Mount Saint Joseph RC School, leaving with one GCSE
GCSE
in art. His mother is a Roman Catholic of Irish descent, and Peter was brought up in her faith. He took several minor jobs, including working in a toilet roll factory, a Netto supermarket, a cash and carry, a cinema and a bingo hall, which later inspired episodes for That Peter Kay Thing. He began a degree course at the University of Liverpool
University of Liverpool
but dropped out because he was given an unconditional offer to attend a Higher National Diploma (HND) in media performance at the University of Salford. He then attended the University of Salford's school of media, music and performance, where he studied for an HND in Media Performance, which he completed; this involved a stand-up course. His first stand-up was the competition the North West Comedian
Comedian
of the Year, which was held in Manchester
Manchester
and hosted by Dave Spikey, who would later be the co-star and co-writer of Phoenix Nights. Kay was last on the bill and won the competition, beating Johnny Vegas. Kay has said that he sought a career in comedy. However, Kay continued to work part-time as an usher at his local cinema in Bolton
Bolton
whilst performing stand-up locally. When the cinema closed, Kay was presented with the choice between finding another job or moving into comedy full-time. After he entered and won Channel 4's So You Think You're Funny? contest in 1997, his first semi-professional stand-up appearances were at the 1998 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where he received a prestigious Perrier Award
Perrier Award
nomination. During this time, he also appeared at various other clubs, such as London's Comedy Store. Although this led to a certain level of public recognition, it was only after his first live video show Live at the Top of the Tower in 2000 that Kay attained mainstream recognition. During this period, he appeared on several chat shows, such as Friday Night with Jonathan Ross and Parkinson, on the latter of which he had previously served as warm up. It was at this time that production also began on Phoenix Nights. Subsequent advertisements for John Smith's bitter which imitate the style of Phoenix Nights
Phoenix Nights
saw Kay develop his catchphrases "'ave it!" and "two lamb bhunas". Career[edit] 1997–2000: Early career[edit]

Kay's first TV project was in a 1997 episode of New Voices, a comedy series which showcased rising talent. His episode, "Two Minutes", written by Johanne McAndrew, saw him play a getaway driver as two of his friends attempted to rob a pub of its takings. After presenting a slot titled "Peter Kay's World of Entertainment" on BBC2's The Sunday Show, Kay made an episode of Channel 4's Comedy Lab, "The Services", in 1998, which won a Royal Television
Television
Society award for best newcomer. This served as a pilot for That Peter Kay
Peter Kay
Thing. Following the series' success, Kay and his co-writers – Neil Fitzmaurice
Neil Fitzmaurice
and Dave Spikey – used the episode "In the Club" as the basis for Phoenix Nights, which was an immediate hit. Set in a newly refurbished social club run by wheelchair-bound Brian Potter, the first series was filmed in part at St Gregory's Social Club in Farnworth, Greater Manchester, where the exterior, hallways and function suite were used. In 2004, Kay followed the success with Max and Paddy's Road to Nowhere, a spin-off of Phoenix Nights. The show featured the bouncer characters from the show – played by Kay and Paddy McGuinness
Paddy McGuinness
– and at times also featured other characters from Phoenix Nights. Six episodes were made and broadcast from November to December 2004 by Channel 4. In 2005, Kay was awarded a Rose d'Or

The two-hour special was screened on Channel 4
Channel 4
on 17 October 2008. Kay won his second Royal Television

In 2007, Kay followed this success with a re-release of "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)", originally by the Proclaimers, for Comic Relief. The video featured a celebration of British talent. In 2009, Kay switched his musical fund-raising to Children in Need with the release of Peter Kay's All Star Animated Band, which had taken two years to complete. He brought together over 100 animated children's characters in a six-minute animated medley. These characters included Thomas the Tank Engine, Bob the Builder
Bob the Builder
and Paddington Bear. It also featured some of the characters' original voice artists including Bernard Cribbins, Neil Morrissey, Ken Barrie and Ringo Starr. The video was premiered on BBC1 on 20 November 2009. Kay returned his support to Comic Relief in 2011 with a cover version of "I Know Him So Well". The song was re-recorded by multi-platinum selling singer Susan Boyle
Susan Boyle
and Kay in the guise of Geraldine McQueen from Britain's Got the Pop Factor. The video which accompanied the single was also directed by Kay and identically parodied the original video shot for shot. It premiered on Comic Relief on Friday, 18 March 2011. In May 2015 his own sitcom Peter Kay's Car Share
Peter Kay's Car Share
began to air. The series was a success and a second series was commissioned to start in April 2017. In October 2015, he starred in Cradle to Grave another BBC sitcom based on Danny Baker's life as a teenager. On 19 July 2016, Kay was awarded an Honorary Doctor of Arts degree from the University of Salford
University of Salford
at Salford’s Lowry Theatre.[5] Return to stand-up[edit] In November 2009, after an absence of seven years, Kay announced a return to stand-up with four (later extended to 20) dates at the Manchester
Manchester
Arena the following April with a show entitled The Tour That Doesn't Tour Tour...Now On Tour. Demand for tickets caused him to announce soon after that the show would be toured. In January 2012, the tour entered the Guinness Book of World Records as the most successful stand-up comedy tour of all time, playing to a total of 1.2 million people.[6] Kay's tour faced criticism when his disabled fans were hit with bills of up to £39 on premium phone lines booking tour tickets [7] In November 2017, Kay announced his intention to return to Stand-up with his first tour in eight years.

Mel Brooks
musical The Producers at Manchester's Palace Theatre for 120 shows.[citation needed] Guest appearances[edit] He appeared in the first episode of the 2002 series of Linda Green, playing a pizza delivery man who ended up being something of a soulmate to the eponymous heroine. He has had two roles in Coronation Street. The first, in the late 1990s, was a brief appearance as a shopfitter, but in January 2004 he co-wrote his own scenes, appearing alongside Sally Lindsay, who played Shelley Unwin.[11] On 17 June 2006, Kay appeared in the Doctor Who
Doctor Who
episode "Love & Monsters".[11] His character, the sinister Victor Kennedy, proved to be an alien called the Abzorbaloff
Abzorbaloff
in disguise. Kay was included in the Independent on Sunday's "Happy List" in 2009 as "simply Britain's best comedian", and – as an exception to their general rule – was included again in 2010 for also raising funds for Children in Need.[12][13] On 9 September 2017, Kay took part in the "We Are Manchester" benefit concert to mark the reopening of Manchester
Manchester
Arena (following terrorist attack there in May). He gave a speech to the crowd before introducing the concert's headline act Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds.
