Celebrating the success of his award-winning comedy series 'Big Show', comic genius Michael McIntyre goes to New Zealand to bring his highly-anticipated performances to Christchurch and Auckland next year.
After the successful launch of his 'Michael McIntyre's Big Show' in 2016, Michael is now set to traverse the world. Last year, the show earned two nominations at the prestigious BAFTA TV Awards, including Best Entertainment Performance (which Michael went to win) and Best Entertainment Program. Before releasing its third series in November 2017, the show garnered an average of 6.5 million viewers on its last 2016 series.
Michael McIntyre's spot-on observational comedy and trademark ability to turn everyday situations into masterclasses of human exasperation, has struck chords with millions of fans, resolutely cementing him as one of the UK's most loved and treasured comedy performers today. Michael has previously sold out arenas in New Zealand, Australia and Dubai and he holds the record for the biggest selling comedy shows in South Africa and Norway.
In the UK, Michael has sold over 1.5 million tickets, including a record-breaking 28 performances at London's 16,000 capacity O2 Arena where he was awarded the keys to the venue in 2015, alongside musical talents Prince, Take That and One Direction.
During his early years, Michael has released four best-selling DVDs by Universal Pictures (UK): 2008's 'Live and Laughing', 2009's 'Hello Wembley' (which became the fastest-selling UK stand-up DVD of all time), 2012's 'Showtime' and 2015's 'Happy & Glorious', both of which became Christmas DVD best-sellers. Collectively, Michael has sold a staggering 3.5 million DVDs to date.
His debut autobiography 'Life & Laughing' was released in 2010 by Penguin Books. With hundreds of thousands of copies sold, the book landed the coveted Christmas number one slot and became one of the best-selling non-fiction books that year.
Apart from his award-winning show, Michael has other TV projects which include hosting the 'Royal Variety Performance' twice and appearing on 'Britain's Got Talent' as guest judge. He's also hosted other TV specials in between including 'Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow', 'Michael McIntyre's Easter Night At The Coliseum' and 'Michael McIntyre's Very Christmassy Christmas Show'.
