6. Peter Kay

 

Comedian and actor Peter Kay was born in the town of Farnworth, Bolton and spent his school days at Mount St Joseph School with fellow funny-man Paddy McGuinness. Not only has Peter produced, directed and starred in many of his own TV programmes, but he also holds a Guinness World Record for the most successful stand-up comedy tour of all time – performing to 1.2 million people. Surely proof that some of the funniest people originate from Lancashire!
