Finding humour in the everyday
Michael McIntyre: Showtime, UKTV, Sunday at 8.30pm Qld, 9.30pm NSW
THE UK’s top stand-up superstar Michael McIntyre (pictured) returns for this hour-long comedy special, which follows on from his two record-breaking shows Live
and Laughing and Hello Wembley. Packed with razor-sharp observations and fizzing with energy, Showtime is a comedy masterclass. Recorded during his phenomenal 10-night run at London’s O2 Arena – part of McIntyre’s massive 71-date tour during which he played to more than 700,000 fans – this show captures the comedian at his breathtaking best. Loved for his ability to turn everyday encounters into priceless comedy vignettes, Michael has once again set the gold standard for stand-up with another critical and commercial smash-hit.
