Michael McIntrye will return to Capital FM Arena Nottingham with his hotly anticipated brand new stand-up show Happy & Glorious.

The comedy superstar will perform three massive dates there from September 10-12 2015.

Michael’s previous tour Showtime was the biggest selling comedy tour in the world in 2012, playing to over 640,000 people including a record-breaking ten-night residency at London’s O2 Arena matching the pop-superstar Rihanna’s 2011 record.

Michael has released three best-selling DVDs: 2008’s Live and Laughing, was the biggest 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 Number One 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 show in Africa and his Dubai shows won the Time Out Best Night Out Award.
