    It was indeed the Greatest Hits tour, Chichester, on Monday. Stewart Lee was only 23 at Brighton Dome, Content Provider tour in February. Now that was value for money!

    Bridges, Kay, McIntyre, they must be raking it in, even 2nd order folk can make a million from a small enough tour. I just can’t believe 10000+ are willing to watch so many stand ups these days. Yet small comedy clubs are dying. How will the new generation get onto shit C4 panel shows that propel them to their fortune?

    Not wishing to derail the thread, but I came across my old copy of Q from August 1998 today. It had a feature about the 100 wealthiest rock stars and at number 90 and upwards the numbers were absolutely tiny by today's standards.

    That was before touring the enormo-domes became a thing. Kay did 30 consecutive days at Manchester Arena. Back of a fag packet calculations, 10,000 tickets a night at 30 a ticket = 300,000 in ticket sales. Merchandise at 50,000 a night. Staging costs and arena hire for that kind of event are 20k a night maximum.

    He was clearing 200k a night easy. It's why people do it.

    The same way that they have done - by signing with the right agency. There are two agencies that supply talent to every panel show on TV. If you don't go with them, then it doesn't matter how good you are, your chances of getting on TV are nil. It's why when the discussion about women on panel shows came up they were able to fill all those suddenly required seats. With Katherine Ryan.

    What? You thought those seats would be filled by different women?

    I presume it’s still Avalon and Off The Kerb who are the duopoly? I did wonder of the death of Addison Cresswell had dented the latter at all.

    Not much known out of me typing that, unless I’m unconsciously plagiarising again. But it should be a word.

    Hot on the heels of this, (Off the Kerb client) Kevin Bridges checks in with a tour that's now up to 57 dates - generally big theatres rather than the arenas that Peter Kay is filling, but he is doing 15 nights at the Hydro in Glasgow.

    I remember when I was a lad and it was a big deal when Newman and Baddiel did Wembley Arena....

    These things seem to reach a critical mass, where people are scared to miss out, like the scramble for Ed Sheeran tickets earlier in the year. Easy Christmas present too.

    As someone else said on the internet recently, save money on Peter Kay tickets by remembering things yourself.

    Entire tour cancelled due to "unforeseen family circumstances".

    Must be a serious family illness I would think because that's a lot of cash he's passing up.

    Katherine Ryan isn't with either of those two agencies, though.
