Lancastrian comedy genius Peter Kay returns with a second series of the irrepressible PHOENIX NIGHTS. Fans may remember the Phoenix Clubs incineration at the hands of Brian Potters (Peter Kay) arch-rival Den Perry (Ted Robbins) by means of careless disposal of a cigar butt. The second series picks up exactly where the first left off, with Potter in a panic about his club/licence/melted blind-boy charity collection figurine. Having lost his licence, Brian persuades the ever-stoical Jerry St Clair (Dave Spikey) to become the name over the door and a grand reopening ensues. First-class cameos (including one by Jim Bowen as Brians bewigged mentor) and sidesplitting one-liners ensure that the chaos never lets up, and whether Max and Paddy (Kay and Patrick McGuinness) are being hired to carry out contract killings or Jerry is winding up high on ginseng, PHOENIX NIGHTS carries with it enough hilarity and panache to render it one of the most original and essential sitcoms ever made.
