Michael McIntyre is coming back to the stage with his brand new show MACNIFICENT – with four dates at London’s O2 Arena.

It has been five years since his last tour, and Michael McIntyre has had a record-breaking 28 sold out shows at the Arena in the past, for which he was awarded keys to the venue.

This year his tour will take to Greenwich’s stage on Friday, April 5, Saturday, April 6, Friday, April 12, Saturday, April 13 and Sunday, April 14.

Tickets for all dates are available to purchase from the Michael McIntyre website, Ticketmaster or through the O2 Arena online.

In an interview with Bruce Dessau, Michael says he wants the show to be “constantly evolving”.

He explained: “I am not locking down any material, I'm keeping it alive and open and adding every night.

“The danger is when you keep repeating yourself. You've got to try and put yourself back to the first time you thought something was funny.

“I've started recording gigs now, but I won't listen to them in case I ruin the show, I sort of do it for security, so I know it's there if I need it."

While Michael thinks comedy is an “exciting process”, his secret to success is “finding just what makes people laugh, but a little bit harder”.

“My aim is to make you laugh until it hurts for two hours,” he added.

Michael also spilled a secret about the tour, saying that he’s got a “new thing” about bread and cheese, different bread and cheeses around the world and how it’s so much more exciting abroad.

“Who knows where that’s going to go?” Michael teased.

“I’ve always enjoyed comedy about shared experiences, whether it be parenting or a UK heatwave, so a global Pandemic certainly falls into that category.

“But mainly the show is about family life and the silly situations I seem to continuously get myself into.”

Michael hosts the BAFTA-winning Michael McIntyre’s Big Show, which is currently in its sixth series and averages over seven million viewers.

The Wheel, which Michael devised and hosts for NBC in America, is about to start its fourth series and has been nominated for both BAFTA and National Television Awards.
