Distinctly Average
14 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

Don't get me wrong I'm a huge Peter Kay fan some of his shows like Phoneix Nights, Max and Paddy have kept me laughing even on repeat showings but this show was just too close to the X Factor for comfort. So close that at times an average viewer may not have realised it was a spoof.

There was just a huge shortage of jokes, one or two big laughs and the odd titter do not make a comedy show.

Also you must remember that just because you have a rosta of celebrity guest stars it doesn't mean that guarantee's you a hit show, I was actually quite surprised to see an artist of Sir Paul McCartney in a show like this.

My advice Mr Kay, next time please try harder......
