The king of British comedy, Michael McIntyre is coming to UKTV this October 16 promising viewers big laughs, big stars and big surprises in a sparkling, contemporary show that combines performances and games with his own rather unique take on life and everyday events.
Michael McIntyre’s Big Show is light entertainment that will make you laugh so hard it will make your face hurt. Considered one of the world’s most popular comedians, Michael is loved by millions and capable of filling arenas night after night. His previous tour Showtime was the biggest selling comedy tour in the world in 2012, which included a record breaking ten night residency at the O2 in London matching pop superstar Rhianna’s 2011 record. With his trademark wit, warmth, funny voice and floppy hair, Michael plays a special game throughout each episode titled Send To All. This sees Michael persuade celebrities to hand over their mobile phone so he can concoct a racy or embarrassing text which he then sends to all contacts. The funny part is receiving the replies from famous A list stars! Some of the celebs to try it out in series one include Ronan Keating, Spice Girl Geri Horner and Dragon’s Den entrepreneur, Peter Jones.
