Michael McIntyre’s meteoric rise to fame took the comedy world by storm in 2008. He sold out over 100 tour dates around the UK and his first DVD release Michael McIntyre Live & Laughing became the fastest selling debut stand up DVD of all time. Michael set off in 2009 on his biggest tour to date taking his new show to arenas around the UK. Recorded at Wembley Arena, Michael McIntyre – Hello Wembley! features 90 minutes of brand new material from the man who has been hailed by both audiences and critics as the best new stand up to emerge in a decade.
More about Michael McIntyre:
Michael McIntyre doesn’t hang about; he can take claim for having the fastest selling debut stand-up DVD ever with Live & Laughing, along with being the quickest-selling comedian at the Edinburgh Festival packing out 26 consecutive nights. Now he’s started, there appears to be no stopping London-born Michael, who is the rising star of British comedy. His brilliantly engaging delivery and effortless rapport with the audience have led to him to be hailed by audiences and critics as one of the best-stand-up talents currently performing in the UK. Michael observed the world unpaid until 2003 when he began his stand-up comedy journey and was nominated for the Perrier Best Newcomer Award at the Edinburgh Festival. Since then he has sold out theatres across the country, become a regular face on television and has been nominated for a whole host of prestigious awards. Michael’s ever-increasing fan base has grown via word-of-mouth popularity rather than from a regular weekly TV slot. Michael says: “I don't really do jokes. I just talk about things that I find funny. I tend to laugh at them myself as well because I find them funny. I don't do gags, just observational comedy. I just collect all these stories and try then out and if people laugh I do them again and make them better.”
In 2008, Michael won Best Headliner at the Chortle Awards and was nominated in the same category the previous year. Michael proved he’d earned his place as one of the country’s most popular comedians when he was nominated in the Best Live Stand-Up Performer category alongside Alan Carr and Russell Brand.
Michael has twice hosted the popular BBC show Live at the Apollo and performed for Prince Charles on his 60th Birthday on ITV’s We Are Most Amused as well as well as the Royal Variety Performance. Consequently, he’s now on first name terms with his Royal Highness, Prince Charles.
During the past year Michael’s meteoric rise to fame has seen him play just under 100 sold-out dates throughout the UK including five sell-out nights at London’s Hammersmith Apollo. In June, 2009, Michael hosted the BBC prime-time show Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow. In September, 2009, Michael started his arena tour across the UK including three nights at the 02 in London.

I seriously recommend everyone buy this dvd. You will never watch anyone who is as funny as this guy and you will be left crying with laughter by the end of it. Michael McIntyre is truly amazing when it comes to being comedic and I can't wait for him to do another tour!!! Absolutely hilarious...a must-see!
Part of his appeal, for me, at least, was that he is genuinely laugh out loud funny, without the incessant cursing, swearing and eviscerating of folk. All good on the latter front, but in this he swears like a trooper and it was a little off-putting. I maintain a well-placed swear word can add a lot to language, but swearing to make up for the lack of actual content will never raise the standard of the routine, even if it raises more laughs from the live audience.
Equally, the material isn't as good. Quite apart from anything else, he recited much of it on Jonathan Ross amongst other things. It's common practise for comedians to do this, but if he's going to, surely he ought to wait until the DVD has been released and watched so paying customers have the benefit of watching it fresh. Having looked forward to this (in fact having *pre-ordered* it in June) for so long, seeing what now amounts to regurgitated material left me feeling disappointed and underwhelmed.
And then to the actual content: it's just not as good as the stuff in Live & Laughing. Maybe it's that we've become accustomed to his style, or maybe he's now too polished and rehearsed... or maybe it really is that it's simply not as clever or funny. He's still a joy to watch, and there are several moments when I laughed so hard I saw a couple of stars - but they were surrounded by minute after minute after minute of being a little confused and dismayed.Read more ›
His family life feeds him his lines; it must be a challenge to be his wife although he is basically kind and warm in his use of them all. I hope he finds the time and peace to come up with equally funny new anecdotes and doesn't turn into a caricature of himself, all shouty and over wrought. He has a rare talent for humour without lewdness and so it was a bit depressing to hear some of the dirtier stories, please don't go down that route, MM, there's no need - you are great at what you started out doing.

The DVD did not play sadly.
It began playing and the sound began jumping and then completely paused all together. Read more
