Britain’s biggest comedian Michael McIntyre is set to return to New Zealand with his eagerly awaited new tour and this time he is going global!

Michael McIntyre’s Big World Tour will see the BAFTA award-winning comedian perform in arenas around the world. The tour, which started in late 2017, will come to New Zealand in June 2019.

Michael McIntyre’s spot-on observational comedy and trademark ability to turn everyday situations into master-classes of human exasperation, has struck chords with millions of fans, resolutely cementing him as one of the UK’s most loved and treasured comedy performers today.

In the UK, Michael has sold over 1.5 million tickets, including a record-breaking 28 performances at London’s 16,000 capacity O2 Arena where he was awarded the keys to the 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.

“Joyously Performed” - The Times

2016 saw the launch of Michael’s own television show Michael McIntyre’s Big Show. In 2017, the show earned two nominations at the prestigious BAFTA TV Awards, including Best Entertainment Performance, which Michael went on to win - the show itself earned a nomination for Best Entertainment Program. The last series averaged over 6.5 million viewers and the show returned for its third series in November 2017.

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

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.

Joseph Cederwall Review: NZSO Plays Zappa

The first of the NZSO’s Shed Series concerts at the more informal and intimate space of Wellington's Shed 6 last Friday night featured music composed by, or with a connection to Frank Zappa. Zappa, a psychedelic rock legend, activist and popular culture figure and all round colourful character, was an excellent choice for the concert’s theme of innovation. More>>

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

Top international world music artists seldom make it down to this neck of the woods, so for those of us into this sort of thing WOMAD is certainly a welcome addition to the cultural calendar.

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions. In their overweening wish to "push boundaries," Charlotte Davy and Megan Tamati-Quennell have made a number of serious miscalculations by ignoring a basic rule - keep it simple. More>>
