Episode 5: Michael McIntyre's Big Show

Summary

Jack Whitehall joins Michael on stage at London's Theatre Royal on Drury Lane, along with Sting, who performs some of his classic hits, and music from his new album 57th & 9th. Plus, Ricky Gervais's insufferable middle-manager-turned-musician David Brent makes a special appearance. Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver risks the ire of his friends and family as Michael seizes his phone in Send To All, and two people from the same family receive the surprise of their lives in Unexpected Star.

Review

Rating: 4 out of 5.

If you saw McIntyre on The Graham Norton Show you can probably afford to miss the first few minutes of this because he repeats his, admittedly very funny, riff on words like chit-chat. But be sure to catch Jamie Oliver’s genuine discomfort over the text McIntyre composes in his Send to All prank. The responses (including a rather sweet one from wife Jools, who is clearly baffled at Jamie’s out-of-character request) are brilliant, while his contact list is seriously impressive. I mean, Orlando Bloom!

There’s also a great reaction from the Unexpected Star – especially considering the fact that, when he arrives on stage, he’s wearing a pair of revealing running shorts. And this prank has a brilliant additional twist that’s rather charming. Sting and David Brent guest-star: they’re not performing together, unfortunately.
