'No more Phoenix Nights' says Peter Kay

Wednesday November 23, 2011

Comedy star Peter Kay has ruled out making another series of Phoenix Nights. 

The funnyman found fame on TV shows such as That Peter Kay ThingPhoenix Nights and Max And Paddy's Road To Nowhere.

But he told the TV Times:

"I could probably make another series of Phoenix Nights or Max And Paddy, but that would just feel like a safe bet."

The 38-year-old added: "I don't do that much telly because I want quality, not quantity – you've got to be happy with what you're putting out."

The comedy star's latest live show, The Tour That Didn't Tour - Tour, became the fastest-selling stand-up event of all time and is being performed in front of a total 1.2 million people.

Peter (pictured left as Pheonix Nights' main character Brian Potter) said he was shocked about the record-breaking ticket sales as the tour came after his sabbatical.

The comedian took a break to spend time with his wife Susan, and sons, Charlie, seven and Finley James, four.

He told the magazine: "I didn't expect it at all. I know it's hard to believe. But I genuinely wasn't sure.

I'd been away for a long time and you can't take anything for granted."
