Having just announced a massive nationwide arena tour, Peter Kay has now revealed that he is taking on a monthly residency at The O2, London, starting in December.

The comedian will perform one gig a month at the venue, from Friday 16th December 2022 until Saturday 18th November 2023.

In a statement, Peter said: “Audiences in London have always been amongst the best in Britain, plus I think seeing the show could be part of a nice weekend away treat.”

Regarding getting back onstage, the funny man said: “It’s good to get back to what I love doing best, stand-up comedy and if there’s ever a time people need a laugh it’s now”  

And tickets won’t necessarily break the bank, as Kay explained: “With the cost of living at an all-time high, ticket prices are starting from £35. The same price they were on my previous tour in 2010.”

As well as his monthly residence in London, the comedy legend is taking on 22 nights around the country. The previously announced run of dates will start on 2nd December at Manchester’s AO Arena for two nights, before landing in Birmingham, Liverpool, Leeds, Sheffield, Belfast, Newcastle, Dublin, Glasgow, Cardiff and Nottingham.


Peter’s 2010 tour still officially ranks with the Guinness Book of World Records as the biggest selling comedy tour of all time, when he performed in front of 1.2 million people. So, if you want to get along to catch him in any of the upcoming gigs, then you’d better be on the ball when they go on sale.
