The country’s biggest-selling stand-up comic Michael McIntyre is back at The Congress Theatre in Eastbourne later this year.

He will perform live on Thursday, July 2, for one night only, ahead of a hotly anticipated tour.

Demand is expected to high for tickets which went on sale from 10am today (Wednesday).

Michael will be returning to the Congress to try out more new gags and material 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 more than 640,000.

Michael’s recent highlights include the Michael McIntyre’s Chat Show for BBC1 but now he returns 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 who, as this is an opportunity to try out new material, may be performing from notes.
