Peter Kay is set to make a rare reappearance.
Four years after Peter Kay’s quiet exit from the limelight back in 2017, the Bolton funnyman is set to return to the stage – with two very special shows confirmed to take place this August in Manchester.
Last seen in a pre-recorded video last spring for BBC charity show, The Big Night In, Kay will be hosting two live Q&A’s in aid of Laura Nuttall this August 7th – helping to raise funds on behalf of the 20-year-old who suffers from Glioblastoma multiforme. Glioblastoma multiforme is a particularly aggressive brain tumour, which Laura was officially diagnosed with back in 2018.
Laura’s mother was particularly bowled over by the comedian’s generosity, writing: “Still can’t believe this actually happening! So incredibly grateful to Peter for doing this and just cannot wait for August 7th.”
This isn’t the first time Peter Kay has announced a temporary return to the spotlight in aid of charity, previously announcing a series of shows called Dance For Life – a series of events that aimed to raise money for Cancer Research. The event was unfortunately affected by the Coronavirus pandemic, however, the funnyman made a short-lived return to the public eye with a remake of hit music video Armadillo and a personal message filmed in his back garden for the BBC’s The Big Night In.
