Peter Kay, 48 has announced he is currently writing a new autobiography after taking a sudden break from showbiz. The comedian announced this whilst promoting the audiobook for ‘The Sound of Laughter’. In 2017, the stand-up comedian was due to go back on tour, but decided to cancel all of his gigs and future obligations due to undisclosed “unforeseen family circumstances”.

I just hope people enjoy it as much as this first one.

He posted on Twitter: “Peter Kay Finally Records First Record-Breaking Autobiography – The Sound of Laughter.

“Released Thursday 16th September.”

In the promotional link attached, Peter announced he is writing a third book.

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

“I had the idea about ten years ago.

“All about working in TV.”

The book will cover a period of 20 years from his time in Coronation Street, right up to his latest BBC venture, Car Share.

He said: “I’ll no doubt be recording that book too before you know it.

“I just hope people enjoy it as much as this first one.”

Fans were quick to comment on Twitter about the news.

One said: “Can’t wait to listen! excited for the new book too.”

Another said: “Just what the nation needed at this time.

“Laughter is the best medicine in the world.”

The comedian’s previous book, The Sound of Laughter, sold over two million copies worldwide, and is still the best-selling hardback autobiography in the UK.

The audiobook is being released 15 years after the book’s initial release.

Audible approached Peter during the pandemic, and he had a great laugh recording the book at home.

Peter had not read the book since he wrote it in 2006, so he forgot major parts of what he had written.

He said: “Although weirdly, even though I knew what was coming next, I’d forgotten so much of what I’d written.”

In 2016, he won the BAFTA TV Award for Best Male Comedy Performance as well as a National Television Award for Best Comedy for Car Share.

Peter Kay’s The Sound of Laughter is available to download from Thurs 16th September.
