Made me laugh far more than The Office
"That Peter Kay Thing" was written and produced following the success of "Services" a pilot which was shown as part of The Comedy Lab on Channel 4.

Both "Services" and "That Peter Kay Thing" were parodies on the popular docu-soap format which by 2000 had been done to death by BBC and ITV. Each episode used a different backdrop which included a motorway service station, working mans club, bingo hall and Manchester Arena. Peter Kay usually played about four of the characters involved which formed the main backbone of each episodes interviews.

The show was very well written, Peter Kay used a lot of his own real life experiences to create larger than life characters which are synonymous with the locations. To cap it all, Andrew Sachs narrated "That Peter Kay Thing" which made me wonder if it was a comedy at first.

If you get a chance it is well worth watching as the characters, acting and jokes form one of the most refreshing comedies on television in recent years.
