Peter Kay, one of Britain's best-loved comedians, and multi award-winning actor, writer, director, author and producer, is returning to his most successful hobby, stand-up.
The funnyman's last tour, back in 2010, which still officially ranks with the Guinness Book of World Records as the biggest selling comedy tour of all time, played to more than 1.2 million people. So why a return to stand-up now?
Peter said: "I really miss it. I know how lucky I am to be making television series and have really loved these past few years working on Car Share but I miss doing stand-up.
"As terrifying as it is, when it works there's nothing more fun and exciting. Plus, a lot has happened in the last eight years, with Trump, Twitter and my nan getting her front bush trimmed at the age of 96. I can't wait to get back up on stage."
The tour begins in April, in Birmingham, and will visit arenas across the country and here are the dates and venues announced so far.
