Theatre Royal Margate is delighted to announce that the fantastic Michael McIntyre will be coming to the South East for two nights in September and October 2014.
Michael McIntyre returns to Margate with two work in progress shows ahead of his hotly anticipated brand-new stand-up tour ‘Happy & Glorious’! He will play two nights at Margate’s Theatre Royal on Tuesday 30th September and Thursday 2nd October 2014.
Michael’s previous 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 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.
The past few years have been exceptional for Michael. In 2013 he performed internationally; playing to sold-out arenas in South Africa, Dubai, Norway, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore. His show in Johannesburg was the largest ever comedy show in Africa and his Dubai shows won the ‘Time Out Best Night Out Award’.
Most recent highlights have included him making his debut as a chat show host on The Michael McIntyre’s Chat Show for BBC1. But now Michael is set to return to the stage in what promises to be his biggest and funniest tour yet.
Pam Hardiman, Theatre Royal Margate’s Programme Manager said: “This is a massive coup for Margate and I’m thrilled to be able to welcome such a star act to the lovely Theatre Royal. I’m sure he’ll enjoy his visit here as much as we do!”
Tickets for the show are all £22.50 and will go on sale to Friends of the Theatre at 9am on Monday 11th August and on general sale at 9am on Tuesday 12th August.
