I got his autobiography for Xmas off a friend and read it in Turkey. I was laughing out loud all the time and I now think of this as t'internet and our Tosun's 'dinky' as his 'lipstick'!!!

(you need to read it to understand, maybe?)

I don't think he in the slightest bit funny.
Re: Peter Kay Theories by Spursfan on 24 February 2007 12:16pm
Perhaps you have to be English and northern (well, I'm a midlander but from the NORTH midlands!).

It's the observations, Kazzzz. Things that people say, and most comics don't pick up on. You often recognise that either yourself or someone you know says them.

Like "It's spittin'!! Everybody in! It's spittin'!" And "It's that very fine rain that soaks you".

I think you're right Anne, he's not on tv here and when I was in England I found his work to be very topical...it would be like you lot trying to understand the comedy of a local comedian here...you'd be goin' wot on earth is he talking about? ;)
