Michael McIntyre - Macnificent World Tour

Five Reasons Why We Love Michael McIntyre

19 May 2023

Multi-award-winning comedian Michael McIntyre has already won the nation’s hearts with his flawless comedy and incredible wit. With it being five years since his last tour we’re ready to see him back on the live stage.

He is undoubtedly one of the most popular stand-up comedians in the UK, this is confirmed by the critics:

The delivery is a sight to behold: McIntyre hurls himself at the material, never losing his way, always segueing well, funny faces and voices effortlessly deployed.The Guardian

The man is quite simply top-to-toe hilarious. Michael McIntyre is uproariously funny.***** The Daily Telegraph

His trademark for being able to dish out amusing observational comedy about everyday life is one of the main reasons he has become a household name. Here are five of our favourite hilarious moments over the years:


Everyone’s favourite segment from Michael’s Big Show involves celebrities handing over their mobile phone leaving Michael the chance to scroll through their mobile as well as send an embarrassing text to all their contacts.

Viewers were left in knots when special guest Lewis Capaldi bravely handed over his phone back in February 2023. This is a MUST-watch.


Sneaking into Peter Crouch’s holiday home in Portugal to play a game of ‘Spot the Difference’ – what could go wrong? We owe a special thanks to Peter’s wife Abbey Clancy for making this possible. With special guest Holly Willoughby, this Michael McIntyre moment is hilarious.


Michael has a great ability to turn everyday parenting battles into laugh-out-loud moments. This section from The Big Show highlights the very basics of parenting and how it’s not quite what it seems – parents and caregivers this one is for you.

    4. THE SCOTS

    Since Michael is returning to Scotland for four dates, we thought it was best to throw in a compilation of some of his best jokes about The Scots – if you know you know. #LegalTender

    5. SHOWMAN

    Michael made his Netflix Original Stand-up comedy debut with Showman in 2020. The comedic superstar recalls international encounters like avoiding shark attacks in Australia, New Zealanders' strange relationship with vowels, the difference between performing for a US audience vs. a British audience, as well as his trademark tales of family life.

    Michael will be making mirth from the madness of it all at ‘Macnificent’ coming to P&J Live on Wednesday 15th & a sold-out show on Thursday 16th May 2024. Tickets for his Wednesday can be booked on Ticketmaster.
