Peter’s not laughing over ‘misleading’ TV documentary
Comedian Peter breaks Twitter silence to slam ‘misleading’ TV documentary on his career
COMIC Peter Kay has broken his social media silence over a documentary about his career.
His official Twitter account criticised the title of Channel Five’s programme Peter Kay Comedy Genius: In His Own Words as ‘misleading,’ telling fans it doesn’t feature any new interviews or input from Peter.
The tweet reads: “Very flattering of Channel 5 to commission the programme going out tonight, but just to let people known that ‘Peter Kay: In His Own Words’ has an incredibly misleading title, as it doesn’t feature any new interviews with Peter and all the footage is completely historic.
“The title also gives the impression that
Peter has been involved in the making of this documentary, which he hasn’t. At all.”
The documentary, screened last night, featured interviews with Bolton funnyman Peter’s friends and colleagues Pete
Waterman, Jenny Powell and Bobby Davro and charts the comic’s rise to fame to performing arena shows.
It featured footage from some of his classic comedy routines along with clips from his hit shows Phoenix Nights and Car Share.
The last time something was tweeted from Peter’s account was October 11, informing fans that a Blackpool date had been added for screenings of Phoenix Nights in aid of Cancer Research.
“Oh what a shame! Was looking forward to this because I thought it was a new one, with him now, as well as older clips,” said one fan on Twitter.
“Oh dear. That’s a shame. We miss Peter,” replied another.
“We miss you on our screens,” said another fan.
