I'd seen Peter Kay presents and always found them funny enough, but not so much that my sides ached. After watching Live at the Top of the Tower, however, my opinion of PK has changed. From start to finish, I had tears in my eyes. The humour is all observational or memories from Peter youth. It touches on many subjects which it seems anyone and everyone can relate to. In the vain of Monty Python and other classics, there are one-liners all over the place, that will be quoted for years to come
Unless you've seen it you can't appreciate how easy it is to laugh at his comedy genious, that stems from all our childhoods, PK just remembers it so vividly. It gets better the more times you see the show.
As my title suggests and hopefully my review commends - the only comedy to top this, was seeing him live in Sheffield in November on his sold-out tour. Front row seats - best in the house - I was crying and my sides were aching all the way through. Strange that on leaving, I could recall very little other than it was brilliant and I had seen nothing so funny before.
I sincerely hope we get a second helping of the new tour if it ever gets distributed. Based on how demand was for tickets, I'm confident it will hit the shops soon.
