Product Description

The British comedian and Edinburgh Fringe favourite recorded live on his 2008 UK tour.


Acclaimed stand-up comedian Michael McIntyre delivers a hilarious performance to a receptive crowd at London's Hammersmith Apollo.

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 them 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 is hosting the BBC prime-time show Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow. In September, 2009, Michael starts his arena tour across the UK including three nights at the 02 in London.

4.0 out of 5 stars The saga the father-in-law's soggy sock. 5 Nov 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you've already seen Michael McIntyre's 'Live at the Apollo', and watched him on various panel comedy shows then you'll be pleased to hear that his "Live and Laughing" tour isn't a re-working of his older material, although some of it does seem to be cropping up when he makes appearances on TV - but that's to be expected.

Yes there are a couple of lines which you may have seen practised on Mock the Week or something like that, but you watch this and feel that you're getting good value for money. McIntyre takes inspiration from his home life for much of the show, from his seemingly anti-Semitic baby, to booking a holiday, to the 'man drawer' (where the old batteries, keys to the old house, and the old mobile phones live) and this insight into his life makes him more endearing.

In a nutshell: I really enjoyed watching this tour live (at Sheffield) and my wife laughed so much that she was hurting. I initially gave this 4 stars, but in retrospect I think it deserves 5. The Live at the Apollo performance which is included on this DVD contains his legendary 'man getting his head stuck in the tube train doors' routine which always has me in stitches no matter how many times I watch it. This is a brilliant stand up performance, a lot of creative imagination has gone into it, and I do not doubt that you will laugh until you have tears.

Many stand-up DVDs contain nothing you haven't seen performed before, but the main feature is pretty much all new material, and the Live at the Apollo routine is effectively his 'best of the rest' - and it's all good!

4.0 out of 5 stars comedy masterpiece 19 Nov 2008
after becoming a huge fan of his after his performances on live at the apollo, mock the week, the prince's birthday bash etc, i could not wait for this dvd, and it didnt disappoint. A superb performance with some hilarious sketches, such as his young son "adolf", breakfast buffets and farm traffic.
This dvd also includes his live at the apollo performance, which is worth a tenner in itself. Both performances are superb, and i cant wait for his next tour, in which i will surely be getting tickets for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cracking up and coming stand up 10 Nov 2008
You're probably only familiar with McIntyre from his regular appearances on shows such as 'Mock the Week', he could be the break through comedian of 2009 - he's that good.

Check out his 'Live at the Appollo' sketches on his MySpace page if you want a preview of what this DVD has in store for you.

It's obervational comedy at it's best.

This DVD's the first thing on my Christmas list, and I can't wait!

5.0 out of 5 stars New Light Through Old Windows 26 Nov 2008
Stand-up comedians have gotten a bit lazy in recent years. They seem to have moved away from more personal material and instead relied on taking cheap shots at easy targets like George W. Bush. Now, just as Bush is leaving the White House, comes a comedian who has a refreshing back-to-basics take on things.

His name is Michael McIntyre and his real gift is to find new things to say about the banalities of modern life, a subject you would imagine had been done to death years ago.

Like the best ideas, the things he says are so obvious that you wonder why nobody else thought of them as a subject for humour before, but McIntyre did and he got it out there. Everyone can relate to the things he says and his self-confidence means that you never doubt him or his material. He manages the difficult trick of being consistently laugh-out-loud funny and, like all talented people, he makes something really difficult look very easy indeed.

With Billy Connolly apparently not putting out a new DVD this Christmas, he has left the field clear for a newcomer like Michael McIntyre to steal his crown as the funniest man around. Hail to the Chief!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Amazing 22 Nov 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I pre-ordered this DVD weeks ago, such was my excitement, and I was in no way disappointed. From start to end I had tears rolling down my cheeks from my constant laughter. I love him on Mock The Week, I've watched clips of him at The Comedy Store on the internet (highly recommended) and knew I had to get this. There is hardly any recycled material (as far as I'm aware) from TV shows he's been on, or other stand-up of his that I've seen, however I was almost disappointed not to see the "Walking bus" routine repeated! Definitely the break-through comedian of this year in my opinion. I hope people realise just how funny this guy is. Incredible observatory humour.

Michael McIntyre is one of Britain's best comedians and will definitely stand 'the test of time'. This DVD is a testament to his comedy genius. If you want to ache with laughter - buy the DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars The live version 19 Sep 2008
I went to see Michael McIntyre at The Place in Shropshire where, at the end, he informed us he was practising his set ready to film his DVD the next day. If it has half the act he gave, it is well worth the money, he had me in stitches the whole night! From tractors to his newborn son he covers it all. The second half is a little more risqué, and you might want to make the children leave the room to avoid the swearing but on the whole another cracking performance!

4.0 out of 5 stars He will have you in stitches! 12 Oct 2008
Having seen the comedian live at Hammersmith Apollo when they were actually filming for the DVD, it will be worth every penny. He had us laughing so hard it hurt! A true genius of observational humour - an ideal watch for the whole family. Highly recommended.
