Funny man Michael McIntyre is the UK’s most searched for comedian- with Brits Googling his name almost six times every minute!

Research by ticket marketplace GET ME IN! reveals that as well as the usual searches relating to his tours, DVDs and comedy tickets, fans are digging for more unusual information online, including: ‘Michael McIntyre debt’, ‘Michael McIntyre zodiac sign’ and ‘Michael McIntyre phone number’.

Russell Brand comes a close second in the Google stakes, generating approximately 201,000 monthly searches, compared to Michael’s 246,000. Unsurprisingly, Russell’s search queries mostly relate to his marriage to pop star Katy Perry, but with people searching for ‘Russell Brand lookalike’ and ‘Russell Brand wig’ there are clearly plenty who want to imitate his style too!

Other funny men and women who are getting Britain clicking include Lee Evans and Russell Howard, who both generate about 165,000 monthly searches, and Peter Kay with 135,000 searches each month. The full top 10 is as follows:

1. Michael McIntyre
2. Russell Brand
3. Lee Evans
4. Russell Howard
5. Peter Kay
6. Alan Carr
7. John Bishop
8. Tim Minchin
9. Jimmy Carr
10. Jason Manford

Some more quirky searches suggest an interest in comedians’ privates and private lives, with people Googling ‘Jack Whitehall bulge’ as well as looking for the names of wives and girlfriends on a regular basis.
