" Michael McIntyre walked out of a gig rather than perform for a firm of debt collectors.

 

The comic lost out on a £28,000 fee when he refused to compere the £200,000 private party less than half an hour before it was due to start at London’s 02 Arena.

 

Michael, 33, who faced debt problems before hitting the big time as a stand-up, told friends he did not know what the company did when the gig was booked – and said performing would have been against his principles.

 

Organisers of Friday’s event, for 350 workers at award-winning Kent-based Cabot Financial Limited, had to find a last-minute stand-in.

 

A source said: “They were furious as it was a coup to land Michael. They have been doing really well while everyone else has been struggling and wanted to reward their employees.”

 

 

Michael later said he would never have agreed to sign up had he known what the firm did.

 

It makes its money buying bad debts from banks and credit card companies and chasing them up – last year it made a profit of £13million.

 

Michael recently said: “Four years ago I was £40,000 in debt – credit cards, loans, all that, with no assets and often no way of actually meeting the rent.”

 

His spokesman said last night: “Michael was in debt himself and has a conscience, especially at this time of year.”

 

Cabot Financial were unavailable for comment.

Has gone way up in my estimation.

And mine, what a wondeful man - a most welcome member to the Cabot fan club.

 

I think these 'debt collector award' ceremonies should be scrapped altogether, they are parasites patting themselves on the back.

It is so good to see some one successful not forgetting how hard it is for others, and seeing some things are more important than money.

 

Good for him!! :D

This wasn't a ceremony it was a staff party.


I really do appreciate all those 'thank you' emails - I'm glad I've been able to help. Apologies if I haven't acknowledged all of them.

You can also ding my gong if you prefer. :)

Hi there

Great stuff -- at least it's great to know that there are still SOME human beings left on this planet.

 

What however was the "Award winning Company" given its award for --for causing the most amount of Distress to the largest number of people in Kent in any one day in 2009.

 

I have to deal with another hideous outfit Restons solicitors at the moment.

 

I always endorse my envelopes to them in big red letters on the outside

 

Hey, Hey We're Restons OK

How many Houses have you Repossessed Today.

 

Good to see a great comedian sticking good to his principles - even in this time of tough market conditions -- that Gig presumably would have paid him a sizeable amount - especially welcome just before XMAS.

 

My faith in Human beings is a little stronger today -- well done.

 

Cheers

jimbo

Very impressed. Respect!

TBH there was always something I didn't quite like about him, couldn't put my finger on it. I'll rethink that now :)

His street cred has gone way up.

Cabot are doing really well are they? I thought they just posted losses of £6m.

 

Anyway, good for Michael Mcintyre. I don't particularly like him as a comic but he's got my respect for that.

Before you criticise another man you should first walk a mile in his shoes. Then, when you criticise him, you'll be a mile away and he won't have any shoes on.

 

Don't get me confused with somebody knowledgeable by all those green blobs. I got most of them by making people laugh.

And I DO like him as a comedian. Thanks to him, we now have a "man drawer" in our house too. We always had it, just didn't know it had a name, lol.

I wonder if Cabot will try and write off the cost of this event against their tax liabilities? Or is it a smoke screen to thank their staff for enduring the tough year they've had and oh, by the way, here's your p45s.
