Funnyman Michael McIntyre returns to Aberdeen for a third time next year with his brand-new stand-up show Happy & Glorious.

He will play two nights at AECC’s GE Oil & Gas Arena on Tuesday and Wednesday, November 24 and 25 2015 bringing with him special guest, Paul Tonkinson.

Michael’s previous tour ‘Showtime’ was the biggest selling comedy tour in the world in 2012, playing to more than 640,000 people including a record-breaking ten-night residency at London’s O2 Arena.

He has released three best-selling DVDs. 2008’s ‘Live and Laughing’, was the top-selling UK debut stand-up DVD of its time, ‘Hello Wembley’, which in 2009 became the fastest-selling UK stand-up DVD of all time - a record it still holds, and 2012’s ‘Showtime’, which beat its competitors to the Christmas No 1 spot.

The past few years have been exceptional for Michael. In 2013 he performed internationally playing to sold-out arenas in South Africa, Dubai, Norway, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore.

His show in Johannesburg was the largest-ever comedy event in Africa and his Dubai performances won the ‘Time Out Best Night Out Award’.

Most recent highlights have included him making his debut as a chat show host on Michael McIntyre’s Chat Show for BBC1. But now he is set to return to the stage in what promises to be his biggest and funniest tour yet.

Brian Horsburgh, AECC’s managing director said: “It is great that Michael McIntyre has confirmed he will return for two nights in Aberdeen, his previous performances have delighted our audiences.

“Happy and Glorious will be a sought-after show as he has many fans in the region.”
