Michael McIntyre has been presented the keys to The O2, after reaching the milestone of 21 performances at the venue. The record, first established by Prince in 2007, was equalled and subsequently smashed by the legendary comedian during his current seven-night run.
With his first arena tour in 2009 of four nights; a run of ten sell-out shows in 2012; seven shows in his most recent Happy & Glorious 2015 tour and appearances at the annual Channel 4 Comedy Gala; Michael McIntyre has a record twenty-seven performances to his name. He is the most performed artist at the world's number one music and entertainment venue, beating the likes of Take That and One Direction.
The key, designed by The O2 team and presented by Operations Director Steve Gotkine, was finished in gold and mounted on a red velvet backing, resembling the comedian's own iconic artwork. Housed on the walk to stage at The O2, the award will be visible to everyone who performs in future.
Commenting on his record-breaking achievement Steve Gotkine, Operations Director said: 'No other artist has come close to Michael's success at our venue. He has performed a record twenty-seven times, making hundreds of thousands of fans laugh, time and time again. Our team loves having Michael perform and nobody deserves this honour more. Congratulations to Michael and his team.'
Upon receiving the key to The O2 Michael Mcintyre commented: 'This truly is an honour and I'm delighted to have this award. This is a great venue and I'll be reminded every time I look at this wonderful gold key. As I'm now in The O2's twenty-one performances club, I'll be starting a super-group with the other members: Prince, Take That and One Direction. We'll be back to perform together next year.'
'They tried to tax our hot pasties. We stopped that. They tried to tax our caravans. We stopped that. They tried to tax our grannies. We stopped that. Never again will a political party try and stop us enjoying a Ginsters with an elderly relative on a piss-poor family holiday.'

'A seriously good comedian' ***** - The Times
Are you sixteen years old, yet feel twenty-one? Are you forty, but tragically faking twenty-five? Or maybe you're full-on eighty years, with the heart of three oxen and the sex drive of a bonobo chimp. Don’t worry: this is normal. No one is ever the 'right' age - it's is the beauty and the curse of being a real person.
In this brand new show, Russell Kane unleashes another blisteringly-funny, award-winning stand-up performance about growing up, growing down, and why farts will always be funny.

'... at the top of his game' - The Guardian
Bring the Noise, Sky 1's all-new music and comedy show has revealed their team line-ups, it was announced today.
Comedian Joel Dommett will appear as a regular panellist each week alongside team captain Nicole Scherzinger, whilst comedian Katherine Ryan will join the opposing team, captained by Tinie Tempah.
The show will see Ricky Wilson debut in his first hosting role, when he puts the panel and guests to the test during rounds including music trivia, spoof video parodies and unmissable musical performance battles.
Joel said: 'I am unbelievably thrilled about the prospect of being a regular comedian on Sky 1's Bring the Noise. I'm sure Nicole Scherzinger is equally as excited at sitting next to me, as I am to her. I have fancied her for so long I know how to spell her name correctly. Our pretend enemies are the cool/sexy/funny combo of Tinie Tempah and Katherine Ryan. I'm hoping some of those attributes rub off on me. And of course it's all held together by the excellent charms of Ricky Wilson. I predict a riot (the good kind).'
The eight-part series produced by Twenty Six 03 will transmit from Thursday 22nd October, 9:00pm on Sky 1.

'Ranganathan's punchlines are sharper and funnier than many of his peers' - The Guardian
Romesh Ranganathan is back with a brand new show exploring the rationality of his worldview. Irrational will see Romesh examine the issues close to his heart, and explains why everybody else is wrong about them.
**** - The Sunday Times
The last two years have been incredible for Ranganathan with his two critically acclaimed Edinburgh Festival shows, Rom Wasn't Built In A Day and Rom Com being nominated for the coveted Edinburgh Festival Awards for Best Show 2014 and Best Newcomer in 2013. This new show promises to be as much of a hit!
'Supremely accomplished' **** - Chortle
Romesh has come a long way since quitting his career as a maths teacher making a real name for himself appearing on Live At The Apollo, Jack Dee's HelpDesk, Have I Got News For You, Mock The Week, The Apprentice: You're Fired, Play to the Whistle, The Jonathan Ross Show, Alan Carr: Chatty Man and most recently Dave's Taskmaster.
This autumn will see the launch of Romesh's very own six-part series for BBC Three Asian Provocateur where we will see his mum sending him off to Sri Lanka in search of his roots on the trip she has always hoped he would make.

Josh is the brand new sitcom for BBC Three, written by Josh Widdicombe and Tom Craine. The series, made by BBC Comedy and directed by David Schneider (I'm Alan Partridge and The Day Today), will air on BBC Three this November (date to be confirmed).
After a hugely successful pilot for the BBC's Comedy Feed pilot initiative last year, this much anticipated debut series sees the return of Josh, his flatmates Kate (Beattie Edmondson) and Owen (Elis James), and their relentlessly annoying landlord Geoff (Jack Dee).
BBC Three is sending stand-up comedian Romesh Ranganathan to Sri Lanka to connect with his roots for a six part series called Romesh's Return Ticket (working title) to be broadcast later this year. The people he meets, the places he goes, the experiences he has will all have been set up by his mum who is sending her son on the trip she has always wished he'd make.
Romesh gets asked about his Asian roots all the time. But he can't answer any of the questions he's asked. While that is a constant source of shame and embarrassment, he can't quite bring himself to do something about it. Romesh, who considers himself British through and through, grew up in Crawley, doesn’t speak a word of Tamil, has no idea about his cultural heritage and has almost zero desire to go to Sri Lanka.
But his mum has other ideas and she's sending him back to become the good Tamil boy she hoped he'd be. Each episode will be a mini-adventure revolving around one of the Ranganathan's distant Sri Lankan friends or relations. They'll be taking him to the must see locations and will also be expecting him to take part in traditional rituals and customs. And when it comes down to it they'll also be expecting him to pull his weight.
The result is either going to be a sense of cultural awareness and a renewed sense of self-identity. Or it's going to drive him mad.
Tune in this Monday (21st September) as Dara O Briain hosts In Case You Missed It a unique TV review show on BBC Two at 10:00pm.

Jack enjoys a special empathy with the candidates as he has been through the process himself, taking part in 2009's Comic Relief Does The Apprentice. Jack made it into the final boardroom only to be beaten by Michelle Mone of the women's team.
Jack commented: 'I'm very much looking forward to hosting You're Fired and hope that the luckless candidates will see me as the friendly face at the end of a difficult time in their lives.'
Romesh Ranganathan commented: 'As a massive fan of The Apprentice this is very exciting for me. I love You're Fired and am looking forward to putting all the questions to the candidates that people at home want to see asked. I also have a number of business proposals of my own that I think Lord Sugar will be pretty interested in...'
Mark Linsey, Controller Entertainment Commissioning added: 'It's great news that we have someone of Jack's comedy calibre as host of You're Fired, and I'm really excited that he will be aided and abetted by the hugely talented Romesh. Jack will be brilliant at guiding us through the highlights of The Apprentice and as a super fan of the series, Romesh will provide us with his own uniquely funny perspective.'
Kim Shillinglaw, Controller BBC Two and BBC Four, said: 'BBC TWO should always be fantastic company and who better than Jack Dee and Romesh Ranganathan to share the candidates' highs and lows with us and bring their wonderfully funny take on the week’s events - I'm delighted to welcome them both to You’re Fired.'
The Apprentice and You're Fired return to BBC later this year.
