Peter Kay has rightly earned himself a reputation as one of the country’s finest comedians, mixing in wry observations, northern humour and good, old-fashioned joke-telling at its finest. And yet even the most ardent Kay-fan, including this reviewer, would have to concede that this DVD release of Peter Kay--Live At Manchester Arena is a misstep.

It’s not that the material here isn’t funny, as frequently it is. Kay’s observations on the likes of Crimewatch, Bullseye, the daft things that people say and weddings hit home with resounding accuracy. Yet all this has been delivered before on a far better DVD. His Live At The Bolton Albert Halls disc, released two years’ prior to this one, is a taping made on exactly the same tour, and as a result, the material across the two discs is virtually identical. Furthermore, the show on this latest release is cut down to a dramatically shorter length. Save for a strong DVD extra that takes you behind the scenes of his tour, there’s simply no reason that anyone who bought the previous release should fork out for this one.

Kay’s talents are undisputed, and the aforementioned Live At The Bolton Albert Halls DVD is a must-have for fans of strong stand-up comedy. But you really should give Live At The Manchester Arena a miss, and treat is as the unwelcome cash cow it clearly is.--Simon Brew

Product Description

The ever -popular Peter Kay returns with a special edition DVD of his 'Mum wants a new Bungalow' tour. This new DVD features the show as filmed at the Manchester Arena (instead of Bolton Albert Halls) and includes the smash hit 'Show me the way to Amarillo'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't be fooled 17 Nov 2005
This is the same tour as the DVD Live at the Bolton Albert Hall so expect the same material.
If you already have Live at the Bolton Albert Halls then there's no point in duplicating what you already have, except for the "show me the way to Amarillo" insert which I believe is the only difference that sets it apart from the other.
It's just another ploy by the record company to get you to buy it again by wrapping it under a different title.
Don't bother! Unless you don't have the Bolton DVD!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Well and truely mugged 19 Nov 2005
By A Customer
DVD was verbatem Live at the Bolton Albert Halls, The only new funny bit in it was when he pokes bungle in the eye during the Amarillo out takes.
Very disappointed to have parted with my hard earned cash for nothing. Tell as many people as you can.

1.0 out of 5 stars Heard It, Ditched It, Naffed Off! 19 Nov 2005
By Mr. Sean Harris VINE VOICE
Peter Kay is a comic genius, and my recent purchase of Max and Paddy's Road to Nowhere proves to me that Peter isn't a one night stand (up) comedian.
Why then has he produced an exact repeat of his live 'My mum wants a Bungalow Tour'? I rented this DVD expecting to hear new material, new tag lines, and have a fresh burst of laughter from Mr Kay. Sadly, I was left feeling somewhat cheated. Just glad I didn't actually 'purchase' the DVD, byt both my wife and I agreed afterwards that the DVD publishing firm or Peter Kay himself are going to be leaving some fans feeling a bit cheated and let down.
My advice is to rent it, or to simply buy the Bolton Hall DVD; excatly the same matieral, just a different wrapper.

1.0 out of 5 stars Same thing..... 7 Jan 2006
We've all seen this before. No offense Pete, but this was a lazy cash-in. The jokes are the same as in the Bolton DVD, and the others that you've never told we've heard a million times before elsewhere.
Please Please Please buy another stand up DVD, like Jommy Carr Live or something.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sly Money-Making Exercise 28 Nov 2005
It's hugely cynical for Peter Kay to release this DVD in time for the Christmas market, as it will lead to many disappointed fans when they put it on. Perhaps they held a gigantic cheque over his eyes so he didn't know what he was doing. Yes, it does say on the front that it's a 'farewell performance' of the 'Mum Wants a Bungalow' Tour, which was the live show previously released from Bolton Albert Halls - but many people will not spot this or not know the tour name to realise that they already have the show on DVD. At least with the reviews below, people buying it on t'internet will be forewarned.

1.0 out of 5 stars Should have read the small print 5 Jan 2006
By Don
Yes it's funny, but spoilt by the niggling feeling that you've been conned. I feel pretty stupid for not having read the small print, but I think it's a tad cheeky releasing exactly the same material on two different DVDs. How many other Peter Kay fans presumed that this new DVD, released 2 years after Live at the Bolton Albert Halls, would be new material? Not likely. The only truly new stuff is the 'Show me the way to Amarillo' video. Cashing in, Peter? Just a bit. If you've already got Bolton Albert Halls, I'd wait until he brings out some new stuff. If you haven't already got the Bolton version, this is worth buying.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ripped off 4 Jan 2006
I think Peter Kay is really funny, i own all Peter Kay DVDS. When i received this DVD for xmas i was really chuffed but to my horror its excatly the same material as the Bolton Albert Balls DVD, if not word for word. I was dissapointed not to see Peter Kay live during his tour but im glad i didnt because ive heard all the jokes, there was nothing new in his material at all. I feel ripped off by this and would advise anybody who owns the Bolton DVD NOT to buy this. If you dont own the Bolton DVD then buy it. VERY DISSAPOINTING!!!!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Same as Bolton but great Tour Documentary 18 Dec 2005
As the other reviews have said, if you already have Bolton Albert Halls, don't expect anything new here.
VERY disappointing that only 47 minutes of the show is here - WHY cut stuff out??? Will never understand that with stand-up shows. If I buy a live show on DVD then I expect to GET the entire show - not severely edited "highlights" - the bits they do include are often not even the funniest bits from the show.
That aside, the 50 or so minute Tour Documentary is simply excellent and goes some way to making up for the disappointment of the actual show itself.
All in all, I would have LOVED to see a more in-depth collection of footage from the entire tour - would have been a lot more interesting than the 50% of the Manchester show you do get.
