Michael McIntyre in the slow lounge about an hour ago, had to really tap into my specs ops training to take this pic without being seen and looking like a total fan boy. The staff were comeplty oblivious and interestingly along with everyone else in the lounge. Anyway he seems to have taken the BA6414 to Johannesburg.

But about the most commercially successful, didn't he make over 20m from one tour alone?

Commercial success cannot be confused with talent, the best example of which must be Cheryl Cole, or whatever her current last name is.

Never sure why people on here think it is a badge of achievement to be so ignorantly ill-informed about a well-known member of society.
You don't know who he is? Congratulations, you'd be a thrilling contestant on Universally Challenged.

Also it's "nor do I".... you wouldn't say "me have no idea who he is". Or maybe you would.
I don't care, I can't take it anymore.

Least funny? Ever?
At least we now know to put this post in the category of "so dense that light bends around it".

Wrong side of the bed day ?

Grumpy but fair!

Can we agree, at the outset of this 2018 thread that 'I've never heard of him/her' posts are banned.

Google if you don't know, you don't have to tell us.

Sir Rod Stewart arriving back at Terminal 5

Craig David - don't know where he was going but this picture was with a member of cabin crew on board. The reason why I know this is because I follow online through socials. I must say Craig ages like fine wine totally gorgeous from the picture x :-:

I agree, "don't know them" type posts don't contribute to the thread. Humour is subjective based on so many factors though so Michael McIntyre won't be to everyones tastes. I liked his work when he peaked, with the Comedy Roadshows and his own tour etc a few years ago.

In other news and definitely a candidate for the "I don't know him" crowd. Dave King (Rangers chairman) making one of his regular jaunts from JNB to GLA. Wonder if he is a prem? The whole playing squad also recently flew EDI - TPA on BA for their mid season break and participation in the Florida Cup.
