An Audience With Peter

Hardly challenging stuff — songs from the shows rudely rehashed with allusions to bum-love debauchery, and well-rehearsed ad-lib taunts for the lads' night out on the front row. But Peter's slick line in innuendo and gatling-gun delivery provided instant defibrillation to an audience in Leytonstone that had had all the mirth systematically sapped out by an earlier parade of rank amateurs.
Peter always livens up the evening when I have seen him perform. In my opinion, the only thing better than An Audience With Peter would be An Audience With Peter On Ice
Peter has something very few comics have these days... joy! I feel so happy and joyous when I watch Peter.
He's a comic who's not afraid to shock, or ashamed to entertain.I dont know about John Inman in 2002 but I've witnessed Peter Tennant revive a dead audience in 2005. He's a wonderfully skilled cabaret comedian
So cliched, uninspired and unintelligent that it always cracks me up... I can't explain why I like this act - on the surface it's shite and beneath the surface it's shite and Peter knows it's shite and he still does it and I find that hilarious. Perhaps it's fun precisely because it is so dated, and utterly lacking in what a self-respecting comic would call material - do we really need John Inman resurrected in 2005? Yes, I think we do ...and I eagarly await having Peter Tatchell picketing my club if I'm wrong ...Ground floor perfumery, stationery and leather goods.
A real crowd pleaser. Has stormed it both times I have seen him. Saved the show at a recent Stratford gig where the line up of average stand ups barely raised a laugh.
I saw Peter in London recently, and I was really looking forward to watching his act. I was very disappointed though, very crude with no wit and awful songs at the start such as "Cabaret" and "Downtown". He lacked any material and got a reception that was about as warm as the North Pole. He seems to lack material and is doing jokes that John Inman did on Are You Being Served, but with less talent.
More talent than that bore Norton - good solid stage presence. However, his brand of extreme filth, though enlightening, left me wincing
