I didn't even realise tribute acts to comedians were a 'thing'
you can have that.
what i mean is, has peter kay even been around that long? like, big enough to have a tribute long i mean
they've spelt what I assume is meant to be "lancashire" as "lancashitre"
oh my god
it almost becomes like catchphrase comedy, he turns up and trots out a load of old Peter Kay jokes and people fall about laughing. They have heard it ten times before and know it word for word, they still love it.
the name of like a noise artist or ironic indie band
Trotting out someone else's lines (presumably the ones everyone has heard before) isn't funny. If he is actually funny, he should be an act in his own right.
Reminds me of when Rory Bremner used to do Billy Connolly: just made you want to watch a Billy Connolly DVD
I suppose a lot of live comedy is in the timing and the delivery, which is hella different to actually writing the material - much in the same way that writing songs and performing them are different things, and that's the space in which tribute bands operate.
But it's still just really odd.
is that it's a tribute to a guy who is still alive and doing the rounds. do a nirvana/morecambe and wise tribute, fair enough (sort of) but peter kay is still doing the rounds. imagine if there was an alt-j tribute act
Good songs, played well, in a decent venue, for a decent price. And it's not as if Weezer are exactly prolific at touring.
Forget the Beatles and the Doors, I wanna see more cover bands of mid to low ranking bands that I probably wouldn't otherwise see.
i'm going to take that stance that weezer are dead to me so it's fine
and all the povvos will go home happy
Still don't get it though
Do ya remember when we all watched Peter Kay? On the telly box? On channel 3? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Repeat ad infinitum
that man just has the worst job ever.
whenever people have to come to my office from other offices that's where we make them stay
It was pretty funny, everyone would take it dead seriously and he would go up and just wail and scream into the microphone. The DJ used to fucking love it
and therefore a tribute act of this nature will go down a storm.
with a PHD who absolutely loves him. She's dead sharp and funny herself too...
because i thought 'there's ooj's NI mate for one'
Gotta say, I'm tempted, just to see what a tribute comedy act is like...
Would be just a stall of over priced merch with a cut-out of him pointing and laughing at the audience.Or someone shouting GARLIC BREAD over and over until everyone has left.
Shows can be as long as you want. Anything up to 75 minutes.

there are more on there
the 'Leonard' episode of the That Peter Kay Thing is one of the best things i've ever seen on TV. genuinely touching and absolutely hillarious.
It's easy to gain indie points by saying only poor and unintelligent people can find him funny (good work again DiS) and he does overdo the "shite things from the early 90s" schtick, but there is no way he isn't a great night out.
in that he started out almost parodying old fashion comedians (not a straight up parody like the pub landlord, but he was definitely tongue in cheek)
but he became really popular with people who just wanted to see that kind of comedian. now I think he does tailor his act to that kind of audience, but fair do's because it's massively popular.
