TV review: Michael McIntyre's Big Show, BBC1

This is a show that wants to be everything for everyone. It even harked back to McIntyre's Live at the Apollo roots with a stand-up set from special guest Joe Lycett, who did a winning routine about scamming a scammer who was trying to get him to pay a deposit on a possibly non-existent flat. I'd heard him do that gag so long ago it harked back to those happy carefree days before Brexit. But then in that way this is a show all about nostalgia. Apart from Send To All there is nothing truly new in it. But do you know what the weirdest thing is about it? It all happened so fast I was too busy enjoying it at the time to notice.

Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke, 19th November 2017

Michael McIntyre's Big Show, BBC1, review

A pleasantly silly Saturday night winner.

Jeff Robson, i Newspaper, 19th November 2017

A third run of McIntyre's amiable funfest introduces a benign nightmare called The Midnight Gameshow: the host bursts into a sleeping fan's bedroom and stages a quiz, complete with celebrity guests. Back at the theatre, Emeli Sandé and Joe Lycett are the turns, while Ed Balls plays Celebrity Send to All. Before sending an awkward text, McIntyre has a peek at the intimidatingly extravagant Balls/Cooper Ocado order.
