Preview – Michael McIntyre’s Big Show

Michael McIntyre’s Big Show

The big Saturday nights in are back, with the return of Michael McIntyre’s Big Show to the BBC. Considered one of Britain’s best stand-up comedians, McIntyre certainly knows how to get a crowd.

His family style variety show featuring live music, heart-felt surprises and famous comic reenactments, sticks to a very uniform set-up, with season two following suit.

To kick start the second season there will be live music from megastar Ellie Goulding and an exclusive performance from School of Rock – Andrew Lloyd Webber’s latest West End spectacle – let’s hope the star studded line-up continues each week!

With Olly Murs handing over his phone, new material from McIntyre himself and a member of the public getting the surprise of their life, it is sure to be a big show. However, with exactly the same format as last, it may not be long before the show starts to tire and the jokes become unfunny.

Michael McIntyre’s Big Show – Returns to BBC One 19 November at 8.10pm
