Edinburgh, Blackpool, Bolton - the glamour of it all! Picking up from where Peter's bestselling autobiography The Sound of Laughter left off, Saturday Night Peter charts the hilarious journey his career took as he left the beautiful bosom of Bolton and headed for the highway, to hone his act on the greatest stage of all - the British comedy circuit! Every Saturday night, Peter would turn up at a new venue, with a new audience to win over, and a new bunch of odd characters to share the stage with: chainsaw-juggling lizards, suicidal magicians, and some of the worst tribute acts to have ever cleared a club. As his reputation grows, Peter starts to take on gigs that he could only have dreamed of when he started out: corporate shindigs in Hong Kong and Geneva, becoming the warm-up man on Parky, taking part in the Royal Variety Performance and finally onto his legendary Live at the Top of the Tower show in Blackpool, and the garlic bread that made his name. Hilariously and heart-warmingly told, this is a must-read book for all of Peter's legions of fans and another chance to peak behind the scenes of Britain's finest comedian.
