Are you ready for nights of non-stop entertainment?

Who is your favourite comedian?

It really is a tough one, isn’t it? When reflecting upon the stellar stand-up sets and specials we’ve had in 2019, it becomes far more difficult to pinpoint a favourite. 

The year has given us some outstanding work from the likes of Bill Burr, Nikki Glaser, Dave Chappelle, Mo Gilligan and more, but there are still others who – despite not being so firmly under the spotlight right now – stand out as all-around crowdpleasers. 

Without a doubt, one of the popular favourites is Michael McIntyre. The 43-year-old English funnyman has been making the masses laugh consistently for years, and was launched into stardom like few other modern comedians. Tackling presenter roles, he has proven he can do it all. So, we’re over the moon to announce that he’ll make a triumphant return to screens very soon…

Michael McIntyre’s Big Show 2019: Start date

You’ll be thrilled to learn that Michael McIntyre’s Big Show will be back on screens on Saturday, November 23rd 2019. 

It’s crazy to think that the show was originally set to be just a one-off special for Christmas back in 2015. Due to the overwhelming and frankly rather inevitable success it scored, the BBC swiftly brought it back for an entire series in 2016, much to the delight of his fans. 

We’ve seen plenty of great celebrity guests and performances grace the stage at London’s Theatre Royal Drury Lane over the years. However, we’re now ready to witness the fun head over to The London Palladium for the 2019 series; this will be the fifth. 

So, when can we watch it?

How to watch Michael McIntyre’s Big Show!

Episode one of Michael McIntyre’s Big Show will air on BBC One on Saturday, November 23rd 2019. A specific time is yet to be confirmed. 

There will be six episodes in total, which will air weekly. From this, we can expect episode six to air on Saturday, December 28th 2019. 

We can’t wait to kick back and enjoy such segments as Midnight Gameshow and Unexpect Star. Looking ahead, do we know who will be on the show yet?


Michael McIntyre’s Big Show: Guests

Not all of the guests for all six episodes have been confirmed just yet, but the first episode is all set. 

Episode one will see Liam Payne take to the stage to perform his track ‘Stack it Up’ – fans won’t want to miss that one!

The 26-year-old former One Direction star has been progressing in his solo career for a good few years now and has previously topped the Billboard charts with his infectious pop hits. 

Then, we also have everybody’s favourite survivalist Bear Grylls taking on an exciting new challenge. Then, of course, we’ll have to tune in to find out who the Unexpect Star is. We wouldn’t want the surprise ruined!
