Peter cried as he returned to the stage with his first live comedy tour in 11 years

,

An emotional Peter Key wiped away tears as he returned to the stage on the first night of his first live comedy tour in 11 years.

The BAFTA-winning comedian has been absent from the tour circuit since 2011, but is hitting the road with his aptly titled Better Late Than Never Tour, which comes after canceling a 90-date tour in 2017.

Peter was given a rapturous standing ovation that lasted several minutes, with the audience chanting his name, when he took to the stage in Manchester on Friday.

He appeared overwhelmed by the reaction, leaning against a stool on the stage and rubbing his eyes before standing, according to the PA news agency.

“Oh Jesus look at me, I mean what is this all about… Now how do I do a bloody comedy?” he asked the audience, prompting the first laugh of the evening.

He reportedly added: “Beautiful Manchester you made me cry… Where did all these emotions come from?”

Peter last announced a tour five years ago, but ultimately had to cancel due to “unforeseen family circumstances”.

In the years since, she has kept a relatively low profile, but returned to the stage earlier this year for two special charity events to raise money for Laura Nuttall, a young woman with cerebral palsy. There is an aggressive type of cancer called glioblastoma multiforme.

In 2018, he also made a surprise appearance at a charity screening of his award-winning comedy series Car Share, of which he later recorded an audio special during the 2020 Covid lockdown.

Friday’s show at the Manchester AO Arena is the first show in a massive arena tour spanning December to August 2023.

He is due to visit venues including Birmingham, Liverpool, Sheffield, Belfast, Newcastle, Glasgow and Dublin, with the run ending on 11 August 2023 at the Sheffield Utilita Arena.
