Britain’s biggest comedian Michael McIntyre has confirmed a string of Brighton dates in the middle of his newly-announced world tour.

He will be at the Brighton Centre from May 25-27 next year, 2018 (0844 847 1515; http://www.brightoncentre.co.uk).

Spokeswoman Hannah Allan said “Michael McIntyre’s Big World Tour will see Michael perform to arenas across the UK and Ireland in 2018 as well as revisiting Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa and Norway and heading to America, Canada, Switzerland, Iceland, Sweden, Malta and the Netherlands for the first time.

“Tickets for Michael’s UK and Ireland tour dates go on general sale from 10am on Friday 5th May, with pre-sale tickets available from 10am on Wednesday 3rd May. Tickets will be available to purchase from http://www.michaelmcintyre.co.uk.”

Hannah added: “In the UK, Michael has sold over 1.5 million tickets, including a record-breaking 28 performances at London’s 16,000 capacity 02 Arena where he was awarded the keys to venue in 2015, alongside musical talents Prince, Take That and One Direction.

Around the world, Michael has previously sold out arenas in New Zealand, Australia and Dubai and he holds the record for the biggest selling comedy shows in South Africa and Norway.

“2016 saw the launch of Michael’s own television show Michael McIntyre’s Big Show on BBC One. The last series averaged over 6.5 million viewers and recently earned two BAFTA nominations including Best Entertainment Programme and Best Entertainment Performance for Michael himself. The series has been commissioned for a third series, returning to BBC1 in the coming months.

“His other TV accolades include; hosting the Royal Variety Performance twice, Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow (BBC One), Michael McIntyre's Easter Night At The Coliseum (BBC One), Michael McIntyre's Very Christmassy Christmas Show (BBC One) and as a judge on Britain's Got Talent (ITV1).

“Michael has released four best-selling DVDs by Universal Pictures (UK) - Live and Laughing in 2008, Hello Wembley in 2009 (which became the fastest-selling UK stand-up DVD of all time), 2012's Showtime and 2015's Happy & Glorious, both of which became Christmas DVD best-sellers. Collectively Michael has sold a staggering 3.5 million DVD's to date.

“His debut autobiography Life & Laughing was released in 2010 by Penguin Books. With hundreds of thousands of copies sold the book landed the coveted Christmas number one slot and became one of the best-selling non-fiction books that year.”
