Comedy superstar Michael McIntyre is playing an exclusive Harrogate Theatre show next month to showcase new material - and tickets go on sale soon.

This warm-up date on Thursday, September 18 is a real coup for Harrogate Theatre, though it’s not the first time he has trialled his latest routines at this 500-seater venue.

The arena star also came to Harrogate Theatre in 2012 to try out new material.

Tickets for the Harrogate preview of his new show, Happy & Glorious, which will tour the UK and Ireland in 2015, will go on sale on Friday, Augst 15 at 10am.

They are expected to be snapped up within minutes and are limited to six per booking.

Michael’s previous tour Showtime was the biggest selling comedy tour in the world in 2012, playing to over 640,000 people including a record-breaking ten-night residency at London’s O2 Arena matching the pop-superstar Rihanna’s 2011 record.
