Michael McIntyre: Live at the Pleasance - One4Review
It was a few years ago that I last saw Michael McIntyre and then he was a definitely up and coming young comic, but was playing in the sauna that is the rather small Pleasance Attic. Things have moved along nicely for him in the interim, numerous television appearances including The Royal Variety Show have certainly made his comic genius known to a vast number of people and so his Edinburgh shows this year and already doing great business. McIntyre interacts with his audience well, comedy gifts of a similar named man in the front row, also a guy in camouflage gear, the inevitable one or two latecomers and the lady with a silent laugh are accepted with relish, however he is not vicious with anyone. That aside, he has a wide variety of subjects on which parts of his routine are based, Highland dress, toilets, swimming, Scottish addresses, laughing and of course the attack on Glasgow airport all come to the fore with that McIntyre magic. The man has an amazing memory to go with is undoubted comedy brilliance, recalling chance meetings of years gone by, and I’m sure that he will soon equally be remembered by all as one of the best comedians of recent years.
