PETER PEN! Bolton’s Peter Kay set to release NEW book in September 

PETER Kay is to release a new memoir in September about his “obsession for TV and working in it”. 

The 49-year-old Boltonian comedian told Politicalite last night that it has been a “massive pleasure” recalling some of his “adventures” from the past 25 years in his new autobiography ‘T.V.: Big Adventures on the Small Screen’. 

Peter added: “I’d wanted for years to write about my obsession for TV and working in it. 

“It’s been such a massive pleasure recalling the adventures I’ve had over the last twenty-five years both in front and behind the camera, and I hope people will enjoy reading about the journey as much as I’ve enjoyed writing it.”

The book will be Peter’s first memoir in 14 years, and the rights have been acquired by HarperCollins Publishers. 

Publisher Kate Elton told Politicalite: “All of us at HarperNonFiction are absolutely over the moon to be publishing Peter. 

“He’s quite simply one of the most beloved entertainers in Britain, and T.V. is a hilariously funny, wonderfully warm journey through the popular culture of the last forty years. 

“Chock-full of TV gossip, brilliant one-liners and, of course, irresistible observational comedy, it’s exactly the book every Peter Kay fan has been waiting for.”

Peter had planned to perform his first tour in eight years in 2018, but he had to scrap all 100 dates of his sold out Peter Kay Live Arena Tour shows just months beforehand due to “unforeseen family circumstances”.

In 2020, the ‘Car Share’ actor was due to make a comeback with his ‘Dance for Life’ charity gigs in London, Liverpool and Manchester for Cancer Research UK in April that year, but the shows had to be postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

But in August 2021, Peter did return to the stage for his first gig in three years to raise money for terminal brain cancer patient Laura Nuttall.

‘T.V: Big Adventures on the Small Screen’ will be published on 28th September 2023 in hardback, audiobook and eBook formats.
