BBC One has confirmed that Michael McIntyre will return to the channel later this year with a brand new series of Michael McIntyre’s Big Show.
“Michael McIntyre is a born entertainer. Not only is he one of the funniest comedians in the country but he is also terrific with members of the audience. Combining those skills in an all-new show is a real treat. We are delighted to be bringing his first Saturday night entertainment series to BBC One audiences.” – Alan Tyler, Controller of BBC Entertainment Commissioning
The beeb say the next series will be ‘jam-packed with celebrity guests, musical performances and comrades from the comedy realm’. The six-part run of episodes will be recorded in front of a live audience in the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane.
“I’m thrilled to be back on BBC One with my new big show which, after several lengthy meetings, we’ve called ‘Michael McIntyre’s Big Show’. There will be big laughs, big stars and big surprises! I’m so excited to be making an entertainment show for the whole family to enjoy together on Saturday night (or alone in the week on iPlayer, whatever suits!). I can’t wait to get started!” – Michael McIntyre
