Peter Kay - mean with the brews

We have got a couple of my brother’s mates staying this week. They work for British Gas and are up in the northeast for a few weeks to help reduce the backlog on a few jobs. They were saying last night how they had been to service Peter Kay’s boiler. It amused me that Peter Kay has British Gas 5 Star cover for his boiler. It epitomizes exactly what his comedy is about. Apparently, he was recording some sections for a CD at the time, scrabbling around in a gravel tray for sound effects. He is also mean with the brews, not offering a cup of tea until his wife came home. First rule with gas fitters – always make them a brew first!
