BBC pays tribute to Peter Kay again

Second series of his Comedy Shuffle

The BBC has ordered a second series of Peter Kay’s compilation show, Comedy Shuffle.

BBC One has already featured three-and-a-half hours of his greatest hits – and is now preparing to launch  second series.

Six more half-hour episodes have been commissioned, and will air on the flagship channel from 9pm on Friday June 23.

The first series – made by Kay’s company Goodnight Vienna Productions – ran in April and May last year and averaged 4.5million viewers. It was followed by a Christmas Eve special,

The series featured clips from TV shows such as Car Share and Phoenix Nights, his stand-up routines, and other TV appearances, and is part of an extensive catalogue of shows singing his praises.

In Christmas 2015 the BBC broadcast another tribute to Kay, entitled 20 Years of Funny.

There was also an ‘in conversation’ with Danny Baker for Channel 4 in 2012; a two-part special about his Comic Relief Songs, Raider Of The Pop Charts, again for Channel 4, in 2009; and a documentary about his early years has aired on Paramount/Comedy Central.
