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. See all Product description

By half way through the 80 minute routine, my jaw was aching from smiling and laughing - and yet I *had* to carry on watching.
His humour is - this my sound odd - very gentle, and very kind. He doesn't depend on eviscerating anyone to push boundaries and get laughs, which is what comedy seems to primarily consist of nowadays. His humour is observational, and it really is the stuff we've all thought and experienced. He talks about tractors on roads and the line of cars behind it, and the penis in the BMW who over-takes all of you; the "man drawer" with old batteries and light-bulbs and random keys... you can imagine Bill Bryson discussing the same thing; the flip-and-sit seats in cinemas (incidentally, he has the hips of a belly-dancer!) and the escapades of his toddler, Oscar.
He's hugely energetic, but it's not slapstick. He strides, skips and wriggles his way across the stage, and pulls all manner of facial expression, but it's still immensely intelligent, thoughtful, *kind* comedy, and it comes more recommended than any other stand-up performance. Next to the likes of Bill Hicks and Ross Noble, that's really, really high praise, and it's genuinely deserved.
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!
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.
This was disappointing.
