Michael McIntyre on injury list after making fun of England’s Euro 2012 exit

The comic was on crutches after an attempt to recreate goalkeeper Joe Hart's dive during a performance in Ireland


Michael McIntyre turned sit-down comedian after scoring something of an own goal during a performance in Cork, Ireland, last night.


In a routine about England’s recent Euro 2012 penalties exit against Italy, McIntyre attempted to recreate goalkeeper Joe Hart’s mis-timed dive against Andrea Pirlo’s chipped shot and ended up clutching his leg in pain.

Following the interval, the usually energetic comic came back on stage with the aid of crutches and performed the rest of his routine sitting down.


As the show ended he told the audience: “You’re entitled to a refund. It isn’t the show you paid for — unless you enjoy casualty waiting rooms.”
