‘Let it Shine’ Viewers, North of ‘Peter Kay line’, in hysterics at Honey G impression New research accurately maps populations who find Peter Kay hilarious

Peter Kay line
Such fun – north of the ‘Peter Kay line’

PSYCHOLOGISTS have delineated Great Britain to show who find comedy genius, Peter Kay, hilarious.

Barry Barmcake, from Pontefract, said, “Did you see Peter Kay as guest judge on ‘Let it shine‘ last night? Hilarious. Classic. Had me howling.”

“He looked eerily like Honey G. Have they ever been seen in the same room together?”

“I am fed up with Londoners saying that Northerners don’t have a sophisticated sense of humour.”

“This inspired witty performance should silence all criticism.”

“I think Peter Kay dressing up in a shell-suit with a gold lamé baseball cap had all the irony and pathos of pretentious Southern chattering-class comedy like ‘The Thick of It‘.

“You can keep Armando Iannucci down South munching on his humus.”

Dr Sally Doolally, from the League of Psychologists, said: “This mapping exercise is a milestone in trying to understand why some people find certain comedians funny.”

“We have also confirmed that people’s senses of humour travel with them. Someone from Barnsley, holidaying in Benidorm, will still find Peter Kay hilarious if he happened to be on a Spanish tour.”

“However, there isn’t a genetic element to comedy taste. A primitive sense of humour does not pass down through the generations.”

“Two Northerners setting up home in Brighton usually find that any offspring reject their Peter Kay heritage and prefer a Southern comedian, like Michael McIntyre.”

“There must be some sort of environmental factors as to why Northerners like Peter Kay. Maybe it’s lead in drinking water or the terrible weather, which makes you desperate for any form of comic relief.”

“I read an interview with Peter Kay the other day. He stated that the retro-comedians ‘Cannon and Ball’ are hilariously funny. I can’t work out whether he was actually serious or is a genius master of satire.”

Barry Barmcake said: “I am proud to live the correct side of the Peter Kay line in the Northern Powerhouse.”

“Nowadays, we even have the latest technology in Pontefract!”

“When I p**s myself laughing watching Peter Kay’s classic comedy video: ‘(Is this the way to) Amarillo‘, I am playing it on an iPhone 7 Plus.”

“What do you think about that?”

“My pigeons, whippets and ferrets love that song!”
