Top UK comedian Michael McIntyre is preparing for a return to Belfast next month as part of his ‘Happy and Glorious’ tour.

The past few years have been exceptionally successful for Michael. His previous tour Showtime was the biggest selling comedy tour in the world in 2012, playing to over 640,000 people including a record-breaking 10-night residency at London’s O2 Arena, matching the pop-superstar Rihanna’s 2011 record.

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.

More recent highlights have included hosting the prestigious Royal Variety Performance on ITV1 for a second time, as well as hosting BBC1’s ‘Michael McIntyre’s Very Christmassy Christmas Show’ on Christmas Day and ‘Michael McIntyre’s Easter Night at the Coliseum’ on Easter Sunday.

He will also be back on TV screens later this year with a brand new variety show for BBC1.

Michael has also kept comedy fans happy by releasing 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.

This top comedy performer will be appearing at the SSE Arena, Belfast on Friday, November 13 and Saturday, November 14.
