Peter Kay - In Conversation

Peter Kay - In Conversation


Peter Kay is a notoriously difficult comedian to interview; not that he doesn’t have anything to say, quite the opposite, he’s voluble and very funny. But it’s hard to pin him down when you want a serious answer. I know, because I have tried. He’s great company, though.

Judging by some online audience reviews — In Conversation was filmed at the Blackpool Opera House last month — disgruntled fans didn’t think interviewer Danny Baker got near the real Kay. But maybe it’s best to judge for ourselves. During their chat Kay talks about how he does what he does, both on stage with his record-breaking gigs, and in TV shows Phoenix Nights and Max and Paddy’s Road to Nowhere.


Peter Kay entered the Guinness Book of Records in 2012 when his 2010-11 UK tour broke the record for the number of tickets sold for a stand-up comedy show. In this interview, broadcaster Danny Baker chats to the comedian about his personal and professional life, with Kay revealing the creative process behind his work and offering an insight into his TV shows and live gigs.
