Mean Spirited Attack on Peter Kay

What on earth inspired this piece of evil minded vitriol ?

IMO it goes beyond valid criticism and is just downright vicious. Especially this bit:

"PETER Kay is an old school, 16-stone light entertainer of a kind that 30 years ago would have been telling crap jokes about Chinkies, Pakis and West Indians called Chalkie"

What the chuffin heck has Peter Kay ever done to Tony Parsons?

How horrible Sour grapes maybe????

Janos Wed 23-Mar-05 17:26:36

Serves me right for reading a tabloid I guess!
What do I expect, Tony Parsons always makes me , the nasty minded little scrote.

Yeah, but TP is a raddled old hasbeen. He did a series of programmes on class once. The "middle class" one was based on a couple in my home town . They were the dullest, beigest, most pretentious dinner party people I had ever seen. I he was loving it, lapping it up.

Hey peter kay is a great comedian. Nothing too offensive and I for one object to the Northern comment.

tony parsons is probably peed off with the reviews of his new book (The Family Way). Someone left it in our loo (I presume dh!) and it's so dire, I found myself wanting to shout at the main male character in it (things like get a life!). I only managed to read around 3 chapters before completely giving up.

ks, No! Peter Kay is a comedian - he did Phoenix Nights among other stuff and I think did a song for comic relief?

I know his comedy is not to everyone's taste, fair enough but I just thought that 'article' was downright spiteful.

Peter Kay is v funny and TP, just for a change, is talking out of his ar$e.

TP is a man who has written the same, rather crap book what is it now, 3 or 4 times? Odious little man....

its a point of view I suppose - he probably knows he'll get inundated with hate mail following his little outburst - he'll feel important for 5 minutes - nice work - what a talented journalist.

Will Peter care? probably do him more good than harm.

not too sure about this remark though
"performing in front of pissed audiences who are stupid enough when they're sober"

thar-al bee me ven - hic!

Cracking show at the Lowry Peter, thoroughly enjoyed myself - thankyou.

and how dare he say that about Robbie Williams

Janos Wed 23-Mar-05 17:43:21

Well I really like PK and I'm supremely intelligent thangyewvwerymuch

I can write proper and spel good so I must be clevva.

Janos Wed 23-Mar-05 17:45:30

They should lock Tony Parsons in a padded cell and leave him with nothing to read apart from Julie Burchill columns (evil cackle)!!

Oh, they can shove India Knight in there too while they're at it.

ks, there are no more fat blokes in the north than there are anywhere else!

ark Wed 23-Mar-05 17:50:15

Have to say - I think Peter Kay is fab. I wish people would stop flinging the word Northern around as an insult.

SeaShells Wed 23-Mar-05 17:50:34

I think Peter Kay is BRILLIANT!

And he can sing, I just commented on this the other day while watching max and paddy!

Janos Wed 23-Mar-05 17:53:20

Another brilliant northern comedian (comedienne?) is Victoria Wood.

JanH Wed 23-Mar-05 17:54:58

ks, no, you are thinking of one or more other fat Northerners. PK doesn't do rentavoice and he is very funny.

Put big light on.

SeaShells Wed 23-Mar-05 17:56:32

Garlic bread!?

JoolsToo Wed 23-Mar-05 17:56:42

avvvvvvvvvvve it!

Tortington Wed 23-Mar-05 17:56:51

peter Kay is a comic genius. max and paddy - genius. pheonix nights - genius becuase it is the social club at the back of every council estate.

always happy and funny - never heard him say a bad thing - nice man all round - and what the fck does his weight have to do with anything? mirror fckwits

Why is it that sandwiches cut into triangles always taste better?
