Dubai, UAE: Done Events and Off The Kerb Productions have today announced that comedian Michael McIntyre will return to Dubai with his hotly anticipated brand new stand-up show ‘Happy & Glorious’ on Friday 12th June and Saturday 13th June.
The Dubai dates are exclusive performances of his new show prior to a 34-date UK arena tour that starts in August.
“I loved performing in Dubai a couple of years ago, and can’t wait to return with my new shows in June at the hopefully heavily air-conditioned Dubai World Trade Centre!” said Michael McIntyre.
Michael’s previous tour ‘Showtime’, which played to over 640,000 people included two sold out stops 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.
Thomas Ovesen, Chief Operating Officer, Done Events said “After his sold out shows in 2013, I am sure tickets will fly out the door for one of the world’s most popular and best-selling comedians”.
In addition to Michael McIntyre the shows will open with a performance by Paul Tonkinson.
Tickets are priced from AED 350 are available from 10:00am Tuesday 24nd March from www.doneevents.com and all Virgin Megastores.
