Comedian and QI star Alan Davies is set to bring his latest show, Life Is Pain, to Princess Theatre Torquay and Plymouth Pavilions this winter.
Following the phenomenal success in 2012 of his critically acclaimed show, Life Is Pain, Alan Davies – the much-loved star of iconic television series such as Jonathan Creek and QI – will extend the tour through UK this winter.
After a hugely successful tour of Australia in 2011, Alan Davies, the much-loved star of iconic television shows such as Jonathan Creek and QI, made a long-awaited return to live standup in the UK last year.
He told Graham Norton on his BBC One show: “I haven’t done a standup tour for 12 years. We went out to Australia and we did QI Live, and while I was there I did a standup tour. It was great, I really loved it.
“I used to tire of touring and all the hotels but actually now I’ve got small children and I’m always exhausted I like being on my own. Plus they provide half the material for this show!”
Alan Davies began his career in stand-up comedy in 1988 and was runner-up in the City Limits New Act of the Year contest 1989.
Named as Time Out Best Young Comic in 1991, the award-winning comedian and actor has gone on to appear in numerous stage and TV shows, taking the eponymous role of one of his best-loved characters in Jonathan Creek, written by David Renwick, in 1996. The show ran for 14 years and has been seen by audiences worldwide.
Now, more than a decade since his last stand-up tour, Alan takes his unique brand of observational storytelling back on the road in his new show Life Is Pain.
