Peter Kay reveals new book on way as recording released

In 2006, Kay wrote his first autobiography, which was turned into an audiobook in 2021.

And, he revealed that the experience has led him to start writing another memoir covering his TV career.

The funny man said he had been approached to record The Sound of Laughter in an effort to cheer people up a bit during the pandemic.

A second book, Saturday Night Peter followed and now fans can look forward to this third offering.

Speaking in 2021, Kay said: “Within the first few chapters of recording, I was inspired to start to write a third book.

“I had the idea about 10 years ago. All about working in TV. From when I started doing bit parts in Coronation Street right up to Car Share.

“It’s been a real joy recalling the memories. There’s over 20 years of stories about filming series like Phoenix Nights and Max & Paddy’s Road To Nowhere. Appearing on chat shows like Parkinson, at the Queen’s Golden Jubilee and sharing letters from Ronnie Barker.

“I’m very proud of it. I’ll no doubt be recording that book too before you know it.”

The Sound of Laughter was written in 2006 as remains the biggest selling British autobiography in hardback of all time.
