Michael McIntyre heads to Netflix for stand-up special

Michael McIntyre is heading to Netflix for a new stand-up comedy special.
The comic and TV presenter has become a household name in recent years, largely thanks to a plethora of BBC programmes, including his Comedy Roadshow, multiple episodes of Live at the Apollo, The Michael McIntyre Chat Show, and his current Saturday primetime gig, Michael McIntyre’s Big Show on BBC One, which has run since 2015 and just dropped a Christmas special at the end of last year.
Now, the entertainer is making a jump to Netflix for a new comedy special, which will record this March. His first special for the streaming service, it will be produced by Big Show producer Hungry Bear Media and exec-produced by Dan Baldwin.
There is no sign of McIntyre making a full transfer to Netflix, but the one-off special sees him join a number of British comedians filming specials for Netflix, including Jack Whitehall, Greg Davies, Jimmy Carr, Frankie Boyle and Bridget Christie.
The special will be part of his long-running Big World Tour and will be filmed at the London Palladium on 5th and 6th March.
