Peter Kay and the writers couldn't think of a title of the show. A friend of theirs told them "No matter what you call it, people are going to ask each other 'Have you seen that Peter Kay thing?'." See more »
A Beautifully filmed docu-series forming the basis of the everyday lives of 'characters' portrayed by comedy writer & actor Peter Kay. This series gives us a great chunk of modern northern comedy film-making at it's best.
From characters as diverse as a seedy Bingo Hall host to Ice-Cream seller Mr. Softy Top, from local would-be Popstar Marc Park to the heartwarming, but funny, tale of Leonard - the oldest paperboy in Bolton...this is all truly magical stuff that put Mr. Kay on the map forever. This series also gave us the first taste of the greatest collaboration between Peter, Dave Spikey and Neil Fitzmaurice - the characters of the future Phoenix Club.
Don't miss a chance to own a copy of the DVD which includes the pilot that launched 'That Peter Kay Thing' entitled 'The Services', and look out for a young long-haired Patrick McGuinness in this one! Priceless and Timeless.
