Michael McIntyre Is The Planet's Best-Selling Comic

Michael McIntyre was the biggest selling live comedian in the world last year, earning almost as much from touring as The Rolling Stones.

The comic grossed $33.9m (about £21m) from ticket sales for his Showtime tour according to concert trade publication Pollstar, outselling the likes of Aerosmith and only just falling short of The Stones ($35.5m), making him the 36th biggest selling live act overall.
