Michael McIntyre leads audience in rendition of ‘Fairytale of New York’
This video of comedian Michael McIntyre leading an audience in a rendition of the Pogues’ classic ‘Fairytale of New York’ is sure to put a smile on your face.
The British star included the song as a part of his Christmas special of his ‘comedy roadshow’.
Before the music started, McIntyre reminded the audience that some of the Pogues’ frontman Shane McGowen’s vocals were a little difficult to understand.
While the audience initially laughed in agreement as McIntyre butchered the opening lines, they were soon getting swept away by the song.
It was then that McIntyre introduced his special guest, British singer Pixie Lott who took on Kirsty MacColl’s role in the song.
The duo were then joined by a group of Irish dancers in festive Santa hats.
By this point the audience were in high spirits and clapping and singing along to the music.
