After doing a comedy training at Jacksons Lane in 1996, Flanagan became a professional comic in 1997. He worked as a painter and decorator during this time because his early comedy appearances were unpaid. He drew inspiration for his early comics from his upbringing.
He was one of four headline performers in the Big Value Comedy Show at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2001, and he co-headlined a show with Nina Conti in 2003.
In 2006, he debuted his first full-length solo performance, What Chance Change?, and was nominated for Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards the following year. In 2010/2011, he toured the United Kingdom with The Out Out Tour.
In 2008, Flanagan was a regular on Radio 2‘s Out to Lunch, and in 2009, he appeared on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow. He appeared on Live at the Apollo, Stand Up for the Week, and the Royal Variety Performance in 2010, and hosted a four-part series for Radio 4 called Micky Flanagan: What Chance Change? In 2010, he featured on Mock the Week, and he returned in 2011. In August and September 2011, he appeared on the BBC1 game show Epic Win as a panelist.
Flanagan’s agency filed a complaint with the Advertising Standards Authority in 2009, alleging that his “out out” catchphrase and act were used in a television commercial for directory enquiries service 118 118. The comedy, which debuted on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, is based on the concept that various people have varying levels of going out, with “out out” alluding to a huge night out. The statement was used by an animated character in a nightclub scene in the commercial. The ASA acknowledged the resemblance but stated that it was beyond its authority to intervene.
Flanagan agreed to write his autobiography with Ebury Publishing in 2011. He was a guest on Bradley Walsh’s celebrity edition of The Chase.
In 2012, he played as a captain on Channel 4’s advertising-themed comedy panel show The Mad Bad Ad Show, with Mark Watson and host Mark Dolan. He appeared on The Graham Norton Show with Dan Stevens, Hayden Panettiere, Robin Thicke, and Pharrell Williams on June 7, 2013. On the BBC One comedy programme I Love My Country, which is presented by Gabby Logan, he was a team captain alongside Frank Skinner. [requires citation] He was also a team captain on the Channel 4 comedy panel Was It Something I Said?
He took a year off in 2015, citing stress and the need to process.
Micky’s ‘Another Fing…’ sell-out tour (and DVD) was the biggest comedy event of 2017, with over 600,000 people attending across the UK and Ireland, shattering box office records all across the country.
Micky updated fans on his ‘where he is at’ following his ‘gap year’ on the DVD, which was recorded live at The O2.
It was dubbed “Comedy Par Excellence” by The Evening Standard, and “he’s the country’s most popular comic and, by some measures, its most popular performer full stop” by The Guardian.
11 sold-out nights at the London O2 were part of the ‘Another fing’ tour.
