Michael McIntyre wants to ‘break’ the US

Michael McIntyre wants to make it big in the US.

The 44-year-old comedian has made a name for himself in the UK and is now planning to "break America", but he got off to a tricky start when a passport control official in Los Angeles thought he was a terrorist.

Speaking on Jessie Ware’s ‘Table Manners’ podcast, he said: "The phrase, ‘I’m trying to break America’ means nothing to Americans. It’s only British people who try to break America. People who live in America don’t break America.

"He heard the words, ‘I want to break America’ and he went, ‘You want to break America, sir?’ And I was like, ‘Yes, I’m going to smash it’. All these hostile terms. He thought I was a terrorist, basically."

Michael rose to fame when he first appeared on ‘Live At The Apollo’ in 2007, 2008 and 2009 before landing his own comedy programme ‘Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow’.

In 2012, he became the highest-grossing stand-up comedian in the world with an estimated worth of £38 million at the time.

Michael has recently landed a new prime-time game show, ‘The Wheel’, on BBC One.

The programme will see the comedian – who has fronted ‘Michael McIntyre’s Big Show’ on the channel since 2015 – step in as host with celebrity guests, contestants and "laugh out loud moments" putting a new spin on "the most exciting funfair ride".

He said: "I am thrilled to be hosting a show that does reinvent the wheel!

"Contestants will be competing to win big money, celebrity experts will have their knowledge put to the test, and I will desperately be trying to avoid too many puns.

"I simply can’t wait to get behind the wheel, I’m dizzy with excitement!"
