Five years ago he was a circuit journeyman, today he is virtually the biggest stand-up in the country, packing out arenas. No wonder he had a huge grin on his face when he did his trademark skip-walk on to the Wembley stage on Friday night. Ten minutes into his set it was easy to see why he has become so popular. Fast-paced punch lines and quick- fire quips about the frustrations of traffic jams, shopping for shoes and bringing up demanding children prompted nods of recognition as well as cascades of chuckling. Like a consummate politician tapping into our fears about street crime, this gifted gagsmith brilliantly articulates our anxieties about modern lifes minutiae. This is classic weve all been there humour. Who has not chuckled at the ridiculousness of ordering from the extensive book of gibberish wine list? For the couples in the crowd there were spot-on swipes at the way passion is eventually scheduled in between meal preparations. Cynics say McIntyre goes for mundane targets, yet for every riff about Ryanair, mobile phones or cosmetics counter assistants with most of their product on their faces, there are imaginative flights of fancy or neat back references. Superficially, the show feels like a check-list of generic gripes but there is more craft here. Plenty have peddled similar observational patter yet few, apart from Peter Kay and Lee Evans, are as persuasive or instinctive as McIntyre. Originality might be lacking but giggles are guaranteed. lAlso 24 November & at O2 arena on 2, 3, 17 November.
