The comedian hasn’t performed any gigs or made any public appearances since 2018, which is when he did a charity screening of Car Share with Sian Gibson. In 2017, the 49-year-old was forced to cancel his tour due to “unforeseen family circumstances”. Despite taking some time away from the limelight, Peter’s fans were thrilled to see the comedian back on stage in Manchester yesterday. The funnyman even teased his TV return as he let slip to fans that he and Paddy McGuinness had written two Christmas specials for Channel 4 comedy, Max and Paddy.
The comedian took part in two live Q&As on Saturday at the Apollo in Manchester – all in aid of charity.
The Doing it for Laura gigs are to raise funds for 20-year-old Laura Nuttall who is suffering from a glioblastoma multiforme, an aggressive form of brain cancer.
During his set, Peter’s fans were clearly delighted to see him back as he received a standing ovation
According to the Manchester Evening News, Peter joked: “I’ve never in my life had a standing ovation when I came on.
“I’m going to go away for four more years.”

As he started the matinee performance, Peter said: “I was a bit nervous this morning, when I got here.”
“I was looking at all this and thinking, ‘Oh my God’ but it’s really nice to be doing this.”
“It’s like getting in a hot bath,” he added.
He also answered questions from audience members which had been submitted before the gig.
When asked if the TV series Max and Paddy would be making a comeback, Peter teased: “I loved making Max and Paddy. It was one of the best times we ever had filming and we had such a good laugh.
“We actually wrote two Christmas specials and then we never made them so you never know.”
When another fan asked if people shouted “garlic bread” at him following his famous stand-up sketch, Peter revealed: “I can’t buy it when I go to the supermarket, I’m too embarrassed.”
Fans who attended the gig were also thrilled to see the comedian back on stage, with many taking to social media to share their excitement.

He penned: “Due to unforeseen family circumstances, I deeply regret that I am having to cancel all of my upcoming work projects.
‘My sincerest apologies… I’m sure you’ll understand that my family must always come first.
“I’ve always endeavoured to protect my family’s privacy from the media.
“I hope that the media and the public continue to respect our privacy at this time. Once again, I’m very sorry.”
