Michael McIntyre tested his new material and his fans loved every minute of it
Funnyman Michael McIntyre hosted a low-key event at the Everyman Theatre in Cheltenham, where he performed his new material in front of fans and they absolutely loved it, according to GloucertershireLive.co.uk.
The news outlet sent in a spy to view the gig as official review tickets were not offered due to the nature of the performance, however that only made them more determined to watch.
According to GoucestershireLive, the gig sold out within hours, and that’s no surprise as McIntyre, 40, is one of Britain’s most loved comics.
The website’s spy wrote:
“After a warm up act who provided just the right balance of self-depreciating humour and a personal spin on the international political situation, Michael McIntyre stepped out on the stage of the Everyman Theatre.
“He opened with a polite explanation of the “work in progress” title and from there proceeded to entertain for over an hour. Having previously watched his big tour shows on television with perfect timing and slick delivery it was a treat to see the natural, slightly bumbling humour that makes him funny.
He provided stories and quips about varied topics from his sons to Mothers’ Day, scribbling down notes on stage when the audience shrieked with laughter and abandoning things that weren’t met with such rapturous applause. It was a “rough cut” performance with a few stumbling moments, a lot of rambling, several sheets of paper and even a surprise “hiccough” but it was perfect.
After an initial warning that he may provide no humour all evening, Michael McIntyre under promised and over delivered. Watching him work is a fascinating experience and this warm-up gig gave the audience an opportunity to feel like part of the process.”
