About Michael McIntyre DVD

Bet you do not know who owns the title of the world's highest-grossing comedian. Well, you do not have to search over the pond to find that the comedian who garners the most revenue lives in Great Britain. Michael McIntyre has earned the top billing by working diligently at his craft for over 15 years. His stand-up show invariably receives rave reviews for the energy McIntyre exudes and the way he handles delicate topics. McIntyre has won several Best Stand Up Awards, including the coveted British Comedy award. He has performed live three times on the Royal Variety Performance show. In 2009, McIntyre performed in front of nearly 500,000 fans during his first tour of the U.K. The tour included six record-breaking performances at Wembley Arena. Like many comedians, McIntyre struggled early in his career and the struggles left him with a substantial amount of debt. After he hit the stand-up big time, McIntyre's start grew even brighter when he appeared in numerous television comedy programmemes, some of which he hosted. McIntyre has appeared three times on BBC's "Live at the Apollo", which critics contend is the standard for televised live comedic performances. He created his own televised comedy programmeme titled "Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow", which BBC aired in the coveted Saturday night time slot. McIntyre's most recent United Kingdom tour in 2012 played to over 700,000 fans that include 10 record-breaking nights at London's O2 Arena. Fans of the most popular contemporary British comedian can learn more about his life by reading McIntyre's autobiography, "Life and Laughing: My Story". Despite his stature in Europe, McIntyre has not been able to penetrate the crowded American comedian tour circuit.
