The Bolton-born comedian cancelled every single one of his work commitments just yesterday, saying he needed to put his family first.

Yet just how much money will it cost the Phoenix Nights star?

Well, when the tickets went on sale, dedicated fans snapped up the seats at prices between £35 and £99, to be regaled by the comic genius.

It’s estimated comedians pocket around half of all the box office takings from their tours, so it’s an awful lot of money.

On Kay’s last tour, back in 2010, it’s believed he took home around £20.34 million for his troubles, which included ticket and DVD sales.

So it’s thought he’d have taken a similar sum home for this tour – not that money is anywhere in his considerations for his decision.

Due to run from April 2018 until June 2019 with shows all over the UK, tickets for the tour sold out within minutes, leading to extra dates being added, but the tour has been completely cancelled.
