Peter Kay changed the voice of his Character Max for this show. In Phoenix Nights (2001) the character spoke with a much deeper voice. Kay found trying to do this voice for an increased length of time required due to the greater amount of dialogue as the shows star put tremendous strain on his voice, which he then kept losing. He decided to make Max's voice higher than that in Phoenix Nights and decided not to alter his own Bolton accent to protect his voice. At times Max speaks in almost the exact tone of Peter Kay's normal voice, due to how close it now is to his natural voice. See more »
You're not Patrick O'Shea?
You know him?
Everyone knew Spazzy Paddy. Where's your calipers and your brace?
Long time ago that.
He was worth more for scrap. You don't remember me do you? My sister you to babysit him. He were a right dirty little sod.
We had to rush him to hospital one night, he'd only stuck Okay Wan Benobi up his arsehole, he was always at it...

I have watched all three episodes of Max & Paddy and have laughed out loud again and again. OK it's not as good as Phoenix Nights, but M & P shouldn't be compared to this because of the all the different characters within Phoenix Nights that allow this to create more comedy moments.
The Mick Bustin episode is the best so far and the wood scenes were Peter Kay and Paddy McGuiness through and through. I think it's best to watch the episodes a couple of times as this gives you the chance to pick up on things missed the first time around. Anyone who has watched any Peter Kay material knows that you must watch everything a few times to appreciate all the comedy classic moments.
I laughed more the second time of watching all the episodes.
All I can say is lets celebrate people who are trying to make us laugh and not knock them down. I hope Peter and Paddy carry on as a double act because I think they're classic!!
How far away are they?
