The UK’s biggest-selling stand-up comic Michael McIntyre will perform live at the Congress Theatre on July 2 for one night only, ahead of his hotly anticipated tour this year – and tickets go on sale for the Eastbourne date tomorrow (February 11).

Michael will be returning to the Congress Theatre to try out more new gags and material in front of an Eastbourne audience in preparation for his Happy and Glorious UK and Ireland Tour.

His 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.

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

Paul Tonkinson, a popular stand-up comic and erstwhile presenter of The Big Breakfast and The Sunday Show, will be supporting Michael on this tour.

Please note that as this is an opportunity for Michael to try out new material he may be performing from notes.
