Peter Kay swears by new DVD release
9:58am Saturday 6th October 2012 in News
Peter Kay fans will find the Bolton comedian has come up with a novel way of “cleaning up his act” when they watch his latest DVD.
The Phoenix Nights star has offered the choice of two versions of “Peter Kay Live – Back on Nights” – one with swearing intact and the other with all the bad language dubbed over with noises like ducks quacking and train sirens.
Peter said he hoped that having an alternative – which he has called the “Special Non-Swearing Mum’s Version” – will allow younger fans to sit down and watch the DVD, which features footage from behind the scenes of his record breaking stand-up comedy tour, which came to an end last year.
He said: “I have spent much of this year going through all the footage shot backstage during the tour.
“I decided to do a different, family-friendly version, so that kids can sit down and watch with their mums and dads. I have added in sound effects like quacks and other noises to hide the swearing . . . it makes it even funnier.”
He added: “It has been edited down and edited down again so that the very best material is there and I have included quite a bit of new stand-up material — involving audience participation and asides — that has never been seen before, so I think and I hope people will enjoy seeing a different side to me, talking about the tour.”
Meanwhile, Peter will be filming an “In Conversation” special with three-times Sony award winning radio DJ Danny Baker at Blackpool Opera House on Saturday, October 20.
Peter’s last tour recently entered the Guinness Book of Records as the most successful stand-up comedy tour in the world.
The show will feature him discussing his phenomenal career in comedy for the very first time in such an intimate style and venue, revealing the creative process behind some of his most successful work, including Phoenix Nights, Max & Paddy’s Road To Nowhere, That Peter Kay Thing and the international BAFTA winning Britain’s Got The Pop Factor featuring his female alter ego Geraldine McQueen.
