Help yourself to an extra tasty serving of Special Kay--a golden cluster of the finest and funniest comedy moments that have made Peter Kay one of the UK’s favourite comedians. A multitude of hilarious TV moments-–many never seen before on national television--show why audiences keep coming back for repeat sprinklings of comedy magic from Britain’s funniest man. From early appearances on Granada’s The Last Laugh Show to cameos in Coronation Street; uproarious banter with Parkinson and Jonathan Ross; scintillating stand-up on Children In Need and Comic Relief, the hugely popular and award-winning John Smiths ads and so much more! Special Kay also includes Peter’s never-seen-before debut stand-up appearance and the smash hit single ‘The Winners Song' – as the delectable Geraldine - from Britain’s Got The Pop Factor.

First, I actually OWN and have WATCHED this DVD (a bit of a rarity nowdays for reviews on Amazon I know!) I am a big Peter Kay fan but I am so disappointed with this latest release.

As previous reviewers have already said, this is a collection of all the adverts, interviews, TV shows & general appearances which Peter has appeared in. To an avid fan these might be interesting (once?) but to anyone who just wants a good laugh the whole thing feels contrived and laboured.

First of all, there isn't even a menu to select your favourite item!! Want to watch that John Smith ad? or his appearance on Children in Need? then you have to put the disc in and fast forward or "advance to the next chapter" repeatedly until you find it! Ridiculous!

Secondly, the interviews are disjointed and cut into different chapters! So when you put the disc in the running goes something like this;
A not-very-funny 2 minute stand up from "Gas" (no, me neither)
A John Smith advert (top bombing)
2 minutes from his interview on Parkinson
1 minute stand up from "Children in need"
A advert for his own book "the Sound of Laughter"
A not-very-funny 5 minute sketch from the not-very-funny "Catherine Tate" show
A 1 minute appearance on "Granada reports"
Another couple of minutes from his Parkinson interview
The Texas "Sleep" video
Another one of the John Smith ads
a 1 minute stand up taken from "The Last Laugh Show"
another 1 minute appearance on "Granada tonight"
another few minutes from Parkinson......and so on and so forth
zzzzzzzzzzzz.................you get the picture?

I wanted to love this DVD, really Peter I did. But I couldn't. and when you consider the vast array of comedy DVD's out there recently released for the Christmas market then there is NO WAY I can condone anyone wasting their money on this. Sorry!

Even for Kay's die-hard fans this is just one rip-off too far. The last DVD was a joke, this is beyond the pale. It has been released because they know we'll buy it. Don't be fooled into thinking you're going to see something you haven't seen before. You're not.

Appauling

Bought this expecting to laugh, but just grimmaced all the way through. Very poorly put together clips - most of which are not even slightly amusing. Really dissappointing. This has obviously just been churned out for the Xmas market, knowing his fan base will mostly buy this unseen, DONT - you will be very dissappointed, and it will surely question if you buy any of his future output.

I got this DVD for Christmas from my mum, off the back of her recently having seen Kay's legendary Blackpool and Bolton stand-up DVDs. She thought, quite rightly, that those two had been excellent so decided to get us this for Christmas.

Basically, it's awful. Absolutely, shockingly, awful. It's just re-hashed cr*p, all of which you will have seen before or, if you've not seen it, it's because it's not worth watching (quick guest appearance on Granada local news, for example).

A few years back, my opinion was that Peter Kay was one of the funniest comedians the UK had to offer and a real shining light of 'working class' mainstream comedy.

He has very much gone down in my estimation of late, and this DVD just adds more fuel to the fire.

It's absolute rubbish -- don't bother.

Having recently watched this from start to finish, I can't help but feel let down and disappointed with the Peter Kay I used to adore.

It's broken down into several segments, none of which are side splittingly hilarious.

Parkinson - ok, so it's nice seeing him on the show, but then he sings. Stick to what you do best Peter, stand up observational comedy. It's almost cringeworthy when he asks Parky to join in - just sing the song, sit down and be funny man!

Coronation Street - even more cringeworthy. I don't know why the show thought it'd be a grand idea to have him play some sort of social retard. The only saving grace here is the lovely Shelley being in the scene - but even she looked uncomfortable with the whole sorry affair!

Catherine Tate - I'm sorry, but I just find this show offensive. I watched one episode once and possibly raised a smile once. What's funny about a foul mouthed OAP? Not alot.

The Winner's Song - I watched it when it was first on TV, and again I just didn't get it. Satire is meant to be cleverly thought out - but this was as embarassing as the real shows! Stop singing Peter!

Gas - why pick possibly the least funny one-minute clip to put on this DVD?

John Smith's adverts - Ok I admit. I laughed when they were first on television, but are they worthy of chucking on a DVD and then flogging it to the public? I'm afraid not.

Granada reports - probably the most amusing thing on there. It made me smile weakly. It was funny watching him act up for the first ten seconds, but the news reporters looked uncomfortable. He pretty much took over the news, which is meant to be a formal/serious show. No problem with doing stand-up on a stage, but in the middle of the weather broadcast?

I'm sorry - but this doesn't cut no ice with me. Peter Kay is at his best on the Blackpool/Bolton DVDs. Avoid this like a dodgy Lancashire pie!

When I first saw Peter Kay on Channel 4 (That Peter Kay Thing) I thought he was brilliant. Original, sharp, witty and intelligent. Phoenix Nights was indeed a masterclass on "how to make fresh original and keenly observed comedy that appealed to everyone".

We saw him on tour just before he became a megastar (tickets bought just before Phoenix Nights became a cult) and I can honestly say that I wanted to go home at the end just so I could get a break from laughing. It was simply the best stand-up performance i'd EVER seen.

Now he just seems to pump out substandard shows (Max & Paddy was funny in places but very lazy in others) and he (or his "company") now releases disgraceful compilations (like this and last years "stand-up DVD") that are contrived and unfunny - purely it seems - to make money. Full Stop.

That Geraldine thing was a one line joke extended until it screamed "not funny" at you but Peter knows that he's the darling of the couch potatos now and if they watch X-Factor then they're worth exploiting further.

When you parody something Peter, you mimic it to expose its pretentiousness. You don't copy the format wholesale and use it to release a drag-act single that will make you money in exactly the same way that the thing you are supposed to be parodying does!

I think Peter is extremely talented - but he seems to have forgotten his roots in favour of the almighty cash prize for selling out to the lowest common denominator.

I'm not a comedy snob but i can't be doing with rip-off or lazy comedy and Peter is firmly in that territory at the moment it would seem.

Shame Shame Shame.
