Smart-suited comedian from North London who has appeared on Mock The Week, Have I Got News For You and 8 Out Of 10 Cats to name but a few.
The past few years have been exceptional for Michael, performing sold-out shows in arenas all over the world. His 2012 tour, Showtime, was the biggest selling comedy tour in the world in 2012, playing to over 640,000 people including a record-breaking ten night residency at London’s O2 Arena, matching the pop-superstar Rihanna’s 2011 record.
Michael has also released three best-selling DVDs: 2008’s Live and Laughing, was the biggest selling UK debut stand-up DVD of its time, Hello Wembley, which in 2009 became the fastest-selling UK stand-up DVD of all time - a record it still holds, and 2012’s Showtime, which beat its competitors to the Christmas Number One spot.
'One of the most gifted performers to emerge in years.' - The Evening Standard.
Michael McIntyre tour dates
Alan Carr is one of Britain's most successful and treasured comedians. His unique humour and effortless stage presence have earned him a catalogue of awards. His hit Channel 4 chat show Alan Carr: Chatty Man is now firmly established as one of the nation's favourite entertainment TV shows. Alan's unique warm hospitality and infectious personality have won audiences hearts, ensuring he is the perfect chat show host as he invites his A-list guests to a tipple of their choice, to let their hair down (which they often do), and most importantly have fun.
Alan Carr tour dates
Although he's a man of few smiles, Jack Dee's deadpan, dry humour has made him one of Britain's favourite veteran comedians. Starting his career as a stand-up comic, he first came to the small screen in the 1990s as the face of the John Smith's Bitter advertising campaign and soon became known as 'The Midget with the Widget'. By 1995, he had appeared in countless TV shows and gained an impressive array of awards. In 2001, he was the highlight of Celebrity Big Brother digging secret escape tunnels while the others were in the bath. Much to his surprise, the nation showed their adoration voting him the winner of the series. With often sell-out gigs, a chance to see this talented misery onstage definitely shouldn't be missed.
