Michael McIntyre’s Big Show

Michael McIntyre is back on stage of the Theatre Royal Drury Lane

Bouncing onto the stage of the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, Michael McIntyre kicks off series two of his Big Show, which is like a time-honoured Saturday night variety show on helium.

And if the host is squeaky with excitement, so are the audience – there’s clearly been plenty of warm-up before the cameras start recording.

Olly Murs (and his family) is the butt of Celebrity Send to All, and an admirably cool Uber cab driver – summoned by Michael using the app on Olly’s iPhone – suddenly finds himself on stage in London’s West End before a packed auditorium.

Adding music to the mix is Ellie Goulding and there’s a number from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s latest musical, School of Rock.
