Good observations mixed with imaginative writing and energetic delivery produce a good show
13 January 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

With his own unique humour Peter Kay performs in front of hundreds of his Northern brethren from the top of the Blackpool Tower. Drawing on his own childhood, Kay covers family holidays, ceefax, fathers, dinner ladies, the weather and so on. Despite this video coming out first, I had already seen him at the Bolton Albert Halls before I saw this video and I wasn't too impressed with that. However, I'm not sure why but I enjoyed this show a lot more.

Maybe because it is a longer show with a better mix of humour but it is better than his purely observational humour of the other show. Here he draws heavily on real life but he also does it with a real humour and energy that makes it stand out from the loads of comics who do the "isn't it funny when…" stuff. I'm not sure how well it will travel because it is not only very English but it is specifically very Northern observations that those not knowing people similar to his family and friends. However even without this knowledge the show is still funny because he has such energy and his delivery is much better than in the later video from Bolton.

Overall it helps if you can relate to the material but even without this you can still enjoy the fast paced and energetic delivery from Kay. An enjoyable show with plenty of good observation mixed with imaginative writing will produce enough laughs to justify watching this show.
