Michael McIntyre's Big Show is coming to BBC One.
Michael McIntyre is returning to BBC One with a variety show format, following the success of his recent Christmas special, Michael McIntyre’s Big Christmas Show.
Michael McIntyre’s Big Show will be filmed in front of a live audience at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, and will feature comedians, musical acts and special guests.
Michael Says: “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!”
Alan Tyler, Controller of BBC Entertainment Commissioning, says: “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.”
The specials begin filming later this month, with transmission likely to be at Easter.
