The show’s finale was watched by six million people in 2018, but when a fan asked if the comic would consider a Christmas special, he said he “could do it.”
Peter, 48, said: “Of all the things I’ve done, this is my favorite. I like being with Sian [Gibson] and we had a good laugh.
He added that filming inside a car with Covid restrictions would be “a lot of work.”
Speaking on stage at his first gig in four years, Peter said he wrote two episodes of Max and Paddy that he might choose to do now.
He recounted how much he loved shooting the show, adding, “It was one of the best moments. “
Fans of Manchester’s O2 Apollo were thrilled with Peter’s return for two shows on Saturday to raise funds for Laura Nuttall, 20, who suffers from aggressive brain cancer glioblastoma multiforme.
He answered questions submitted by the public during the concerts which sold out in 30 minutes.
Fan John Bohan, from Wirral, Merseyside, said it was the best performance in the comics.
Laura, who was in the public, initially had 12 to 18 months to live when she was diagnosed at the age of 18, but fundraising paid for immunotherapy treatment in Germany.
His sister Gracie introduced Peter on stage and said the family were grateful to the audience for “potentially saving my sister’s life.”
Hundreds of fans lined up in the rain to see the comedian who canceled his last tour in 2017, citing “unforeseen family circumstances”.
