Well done Michael. . .

 

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.”

You don't suppose someone he knows reads this forum, do you? He was heavily criticised on here last year when he DID perform for a DCA award... :razz:

Good on him! Thing is I didn't know how awful DCAs were until I found this thread. £28,000 grand though...........a lot of money to lose, so I admire him for this and he is very funny!!!
