Max and Paddy's Road to Nowhere is a British comedy television show on Channel 4 starring and written by Peter Kay and Paddy McGuinness. All the episodes were also directed by Kay. It is a spin-off of the popular series Phoenix Nights, also written by Peter Kay.
It began on 12 November 2004 and ran for six 30 minute episodes up until 17 December 2004. This spin off from Peter Kay's Phoenix Nights follows the two Bolton doormen/bouncers Maxwell "Max" Bygraves (Kay) and Patrick "Paddy" O'Shea (McGuinness) as they wind their way around Britain in their campervan.
The key reason why they are on the open road is never mentioned in the series however: they took £8,000 from a woman in the second series of Peter Kay's Phoenix Nights to kill her husband, but never properly went through with the job. When she discovered this, they hit the road in the van to escape the possible consequences.
