Michael McIntyre’s Warm up Gig

Posted on

I just remembered I told a lie yesterday about not being up to much lately. I went to see Michael McIntyre last Wednesday at a small venue in London called Pleasance theatre. He’s been doing a collection of warm up gigs here and there to prepare him for his big shows in September, October and November at the London o2 arena and Wembley arena. It gives him a chance to think up new material and to see what works and what doesn’t by judging how many laughs he gets. Basically we played the role of his guinea pigs which I didn’t mind at all.

I hadn’t seen Michael McIntyre live before so I was really looking forward to it. My friend Julie had got hold of the tickets for just £5 each which to say that was a bargain is an understatement. Because the venue was small, it was nice having that bit of intimacy and Michael had me crying with laughter from the moment he stepped out onto the stage. He announced that he was a little worse for wear as he had been to the Britt awards the night before and it was also his birthday therefore there would be no skipping on stage. Every now and then he would take notes as his note taker didn’t want to come out in the miserable weather, we found this just as funny as the jokes themselves and chuckled every time he turned round to scribble something down.

I certainly have new-found love and respect for this hilarious man and I would definitely recommend that you go to one of his shows if you ever get the opportunity. Even better… go to one of his £5 shows and you’ll be laughing so to speak 🙂
