It’s hard to remember a comedian that’s enjoyed anything like the far-reaching success of Peter Kay in recent years. A best-selling autobiography, writing and directing hit television shows, and a comedy tour that broke records are just some of his achievements, and there’s a strong flavour of what makes him so popular on this Stand Up Ukay DVD.
The disc is effectively a greatest hits collection of his stand-up comedy routines, apparently chosen by the British public. So therefore Stand Up Ukay brings together some hilarious work: Hob Nobs in the your tea, how people dance at weddings and the infamous garlic bread are examples of some of the material here. The disc is then rounded out with the music video to "I’m Gonna Be" (500 Miles).
Without doubt, Stand Up Ukay is a DVD packed with laughs, but conversely, there’s little getting away from the fact that it’s full of material that the majority will have seen and enjoyed before. That some of it is making its third appearance on a DVD release does sour the taste a little, too.
Still, if you’ve missed out what all the fuss about, then Stand Up Ukay is an excellent starting point. Everyone else is best being a little more cautious. --Simon Brew
