Michael McIntyre's first Stand Up was breath-taking, literally. It was fresh it has lively it was unique but original all in one! His second stand up Hello Wembley, is not so. As a stand-up show it is well above average but I cannot help but compare it with his previous stand up 12 months earlier.
It is still the same Michael we see in his previous show but something is missing, the thing that made his first show such a success, has gone and I can't quite put my finger on it. His approach seems to be a little different, he seems to shout a lot more and ends his jokes quite abruptly, and the stories don't flow as well. Don't get me wrong, many the stories he tells us are hilarious and similar to his previous show, many are relatable. He seems to have lost his quirkiness in this one, his one liners and his witty sarcasm is sometimes replaced by a more childish approach of shouting and acting out scenes on stage. It has a more 'child aimed' feel to it.
This review seems to be overly negative and I'm sure you are wondering how I have given it a 7 based on this and not a 1! At the end of the day Michael is hilarious, he comes across as such a likable guy and tells us stories that has us in stitches laughing. There are many memorable gags and plenty of laugh out loud moments. I just feel that he has changed certain areas of his style for this tour and I don't feel it was needed. If it's not broke, don't fix it! His first stand up could well have had a negative effect on his future tours (in a rather strange, backwards way) as it set the bar so high that even Michael himself is struggling to reach it now!
