Northern comedian Peter Kay is a British institution, the writer and stand-up comedian has had us all in stitches for nearly two decades with his observational comedy and his classic catchphrases like “garlic bread!” and other classic one-liners from his shows.
The appearance will be his first in three years, Peter was last seen at a surprise screening of Car Share in 2018, and now the Car Share legend will be performing two special live Q&A’s in aid of Laura Nuttall at Manchester O2 Apollo on 7th August 21.
Laura, who is from Pendle in Lancashire was diagnosed with Glioblastoma multiforme, a fast-growing and aggressive brain tumour, back in October 2018 after a brain scan that showed six tumours. The show will help raise money for the terminally ill young girl.
Laura’s mum wrote: ‘Still can’t believe this actually happening! So incredibly grateful to Peter for doing this and just cannot wait for August 7th.’
And other fans were just as delighted writing: ‘absolutely thrilled with this news.
If you’d like to get tickets they go on sale on Friday the 30th July at 9 am so make sure you’re ready as they’re sure to sell out fast. All profits from the two performances ‘Doing It For Laura’ will go towards the helping Laura battle her grade 4 brain cancer.
Hopefully this may be a sign of mroe gigs to follow, but we can only keep our fingers crossed that the legend from Bolton returns to stand up, we could all do witha good laugh that’s for sure.
