Peter Kay Is Absolutely Rolling In It So The Phoenix Club Deserves A Renovation

Peter Kay Is Absolutely Rolling In It So The Phoenix Club Deserves A Renovation

Ever since the late 1990s when performing various stand-up comedy shows and gaining attention after writing and performing in That Peter Kay Thing, the man himself has entertained the masses.

His Channel 4 show, Phoenix Nights, achieved critical acclaim and put him forward as one of Britain's best comedians, before he went on to other TV projects such as Max and Paddy's Road to Nowhere, Peter Kay's Britain's Got the Pop Factor... and Possibly a New Celebrity Jesus Christ Soapstar Superstar Strictly on Ice, and Peter Kay's Car Share.

In 2010, Kay returned to stand-up comedy when embarking on a huge tour that was officially inaugurated into the Guinness World Records as the most successful ever having played to more than 1.2 million people.

For all his work on stage, on his own shows and other sitcoms, you'd be right to assume that he's absolutely raking it in. The latest accounts for his two businesses, Good Night Vienna Productions and Hussein Traders, show that the comic has pulled in nearly £28million.

According to Companies House, via the Daily Mail, both his businesses hold £27.7million. This means Brian Potter is probably trying to sort out a few quid to go towards renovating The Phoenix Club.

Max and Paddy are most likely also after a brand new tax free haven, while Mr Softy Top is asking for a new ice cream van and Keith Lard wants a loan to go towards a new lawyer.

Last year, the businesses reportedly held £26.4million. That means in last 12 months alone he's amassed £1.3million. Most of that will likely have come from Car Share, which was the most successful BBC iPlayer premiere to date, with 2.8million people watching it online in five days.
