Michael McIntyre
Hyperactive British standup comic focusing on observational humour. Also a frequent guest on Panel Games. Like Peter Kay, is subject to a dissonance between being popular in the general public but hated by many critics for being 'too conventional' or 'too safe'. His best known routines are probably the "Man Drawer" and his claim that skipping while swinging your arms gives you Super Speed at the expense of looking a bit stupid.

List of subjective tropes is HERE.
Contains examples of:
  • Anthropomorphic Food: One of his bits is about different spices talking amongst themselves in a cupboard.
  • Camp Straight: His usual manner, often lampshaded.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Despite his usual hyperactive manner, he is given to moments of wry, sardonic wit.
    Mother: I've heard that sex and curry can induce labour. Unfortunately, it kind of got me and my wife kicked out of the Raj King.
  • Eye Tropes: Despite having no known East Asian ancestry, Mc Intyre has "Chinese eyes", which he sometimes mentions.
  • I Am Very British
  • Large Ham: Just when you thought he reached how loud he could get, he always manages get even louder.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: Always wears a suit.
  • That Came Out Wrong: An attempted 'innocently quirky joke reply' which came out as implying he was a paedophile:
    Mother at playgroup: Which child is yours?
    Mc Intyre: Oh, none of them.
  • Who Names Their Kid "Dude"?: Has a routine about this, trying to find a fake name for his child weird enough to stop people from automatically saying 'what a nice name' when told it, including "Adolf" and "Laser Child of Mine".
