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 »
The first time I ever saw Peter Kay was on one of those 100 best ever programs. Didn't have a clue who he was. Then I caught an episode of That Peter Kay Thing; the one where he played Mr Softy Top the ice cream man. I WAS IN FITS the whole time.
From that point onwards Peter Kay was the man for me. Even my mother likes him. She is not British born and can hardly understand the northern dialect but still manages to get the joke. He is a comic genius for our generation.
My mother also loves Phoenix Nights. But she can never remember Peter's name. She calls him MR SOFTY TOP!
