Tonights TV Highlights: Channel 4

9pm: Peter Kay Live at the Manchester Arena

Channel 4's Funny Fortnight continues, a two-week extravaganza of top notch comedy telly including brand new shows, stand-up and archive treats. The multi award-winning Peter Kay's live national stand-up show at Manchester's Nimex. This 60-minute special spotlights Peter's painfully funny and acutely observed humour and highlights why he has become one of the most universally popular comedians in recent times.

10pm: Bad Sugar

Shown as part of Channel 4's Funny Fortnight season. Written by Peep Show's Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong, Bad Sugar stars three of the biggest female names in British Comedy - Olivia Colman, Julia Davis and Sharon Horgan - all of whom also co-conceived the idea. Bad Sugar centres on a dysfunctional, wealthy mining dynasty, with an ailing patriarch and some greedy siblings. It's a peculiarly British take on telenovela style melodramas, played for laughs. Also starring David Bradley, Peter Serafinowicz, Kayvan Novak and Reece Shearsmith.
Later tonight there's a double bill of Dylan Moran in new stand up and Black Books ; editions of Comedy Labs with Ricky Gervais and Dynamo; Mark Thomas; Da Ali G Show - and more.
