The star of ABC TV’s Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow, Michael McIntyre is bringing his stand-up show that has sold out all across the UK, to Australia for the very first time. Considered the “UK’s Biggest selling Comedian” in 2012, with over 750,000 tickets sold for his live shows and over 2,500,000 copies sold of his Live & Laughing and Hello Wembley DVDs – Expect this to be one of the biggest comedy shows of the year.
Michael’s spot on observational comedy and trademark ability to turn everyday situations into master-classes of human exasperation have struck chords with millions of fans, resolutely cementing him as one of the UK’s most loved and treasured comedy performers.
Winner of Best Stand-up at the British comedy awards in 2009, his UK tour last year included four record-breaking nights at Wembley Arena and ten at the O2 Arena, where he performed for over 200,000 people in London alone. Other awards include Best Male TV Comic 2010, Perrier and Chortle Awards and a host of nominations, including a BAFTA.
Be one of the first people in Australia to witness live on stage this unrivalled comic genius. These shows will sell-out, you’ll need to be fast if you want to witness the comedian that the rest of the world is talking about.
