TICKETS for Michael McIntyre’s two Harrogate shows next month have sold out within three minutes.

The two dates, at Harrogate Theatre on May 7 and 8, were announced earlier this week.

They went on sale at 9am today, with orders being placed simultaneously online, over the phone and over the counter in the theatre.

It’s the fastest comedy sell-out to date. John Bishop’s June show sold out in just over ten minutes, while Jack Dee’s April gig - which had to be cancelled for a family emergency - sold out in around five.
