BAFTA award-winning comedian, Michael McIntyre, returned to Cardiff for his Big World Tour. 

As one of the UK’s most loved comedy performers, a packed house awaited him for his opening night.

From the start Michael began getting up close and personal with members of the audience who lapped up his Welsh impressions and jokes, stating Cardiff is always one of his favourite places to visit.

The entirety of Michael’s show contained what he always does best, turning normal and mundane daily occurrences into hilarious comedy routines. He covered subjects such as smart phones, traffic jams and even running a bath. Many members of the audience were nodding along and laughing, relating to the scenes themselves. 

Labelled as Michael’s Big World Tour, a large proportion of the show covered Michael’s travels across the globe from Asia, South Africa, America and so on. From a few dodgy accents, to some bizarre stories, his most memorable routine focused on his stay in a Norwegian hotel with ‘faulty’ lights. He somehow ends up in his room with a bearded Viking-like man in complete darkness.

As a big-hearted husband and father, the other focus of his show is his family with his wife, two kids and new dog. But one image the audience unfortunately may not be able to forget is Michael’s story about attempting to seduce his wife whilst wearing a medical back belt. 

The show ended with an encore, with an entertaining tale about an awkward experience in a male toilet. 

This is the usual entertaining hilarious comedy that you would expect from Michael McIntyre. 

His show continues in Cardiff until Monday.
