Dubai, UAE: Comedian Michael McIntyre will return to Dubai with his hotly anticipated brand new stand-up show ‘Happy & Glorious’ this weekend. It’s no surprise then that today organisers declared the Friday show completely sold out, with just a few tickets left to purchase for Saturday’s performance.
Michael’s previous tour ‘Showtime’, which played to over 640,000 people included a sold out stop in Dubai in June 2013. It was the biggest selling comedy tour in the world, playing to sold out arenas in South Africa, Norway, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore. His show in Johannesburg was the largest ever comedy show in Africa and his Dubai shows won the Time Out Nightlife Award for Best Comedy show. In the UK the tour included a record-breaking ten-night residency at London’s O2 Arena.
Since breakthrough appearances on OSN’s ‘Live at the Apollo’ the skipping, stand-up has achieved (comedy) world domination through his observations: he’s had his own TV stand-up and chat shows, sells out massive tours in a matter of minutes and has spawned numerous impressions.
