In this Christmas Day special for BBC One, Michael presents the world’s leading comedians and music superstars, as well as his own unique talent, for a night packed with festive treats and surprises. Expect the unexpected as Michael provides his own inimitable take on Christmas with a little help from an unsuspecting audience and some star guests. It’s a night at the theatre you won’t want to miss!
Michael McIntyre says: “It’s such an honour to be hosting Michael Mcintyre’s Big Christmas Show on BBC One this Christmas day. With big stars and big laughs at London’s beautiful Theatre Royal, it promises to be a night you won’t forget, although given the level of merriment of some of the viewers at the end of Christmas day, not all of you will remember it. I know my mother-in-law won’t!”
Alan Tyler, Acting Controller of BBC Entertainment Commissioning, says: “I’m delighted that Michael is back on the BBC this Christmas. He is one of the country’s best-loved comedians, and I’m really looking forward to seeing how he plans to celebrate the festive season with the UK!”
Dan Baldwin, MD for Hungry McBear Media, says: “It’s always a privilege working with Michael and we are looking forward to building on the success of our Easter special with another fantastic show for BBC One on Christmas Day. This is an entertainment spectacle with the country’s biggest and best comedian at the heart of all the festive fun.”
Michael McIntyre’s Big Christmas Show is exec produced by Ed de Burgh and Dan Baldwin, series produced by Christian Fletcher for Hungry McBear and commissioned by Mark Linsey, Acting Director, BBC Television and Charlotte Moore, Controller, BBC One.
