The last time Peter Kay did a live stand-up tour, Gordon Brown was Prime Minister, William and Kate had just announced their engagement and Cheryl had just split from Ashley Cole.


Basically, it was a long time ago. Now, the legendary Car Share comedian has just announced a huge run of brand new tour dates for 2018 and 2019 - his first stand-up tour in eight years.

His 2010 stand-up The Tour That Doesn't Tour Tour...Now On Tour officially made the Guinness Book of World Records as the biggest selling comedy tour of all time, with the star playing to over 1.2 million people.

On why he wanted to go back out on tour, Peter said: "I really miss it. I know how lucky I am to be making television series and have really loved these past few years working on Car Share but I miss doing stand-up.

"As terrifying as it is, when it works there's nothing more fun and exciting. Plus, a lot has happened in the last eight years, with Trump, Twitter and my Nan getting her front bush trimmed at the age of 96. I can't wait to get back up on stage."
