Alan Davies Returns to Stand-Up

31st January 2012

Comedian Alan Davies has announced his first UK tour in 12 years after a series of gigs in Australia revived his interest in live performance.

The Jonathan Creek star will take to the road wth his Life Is Pain stand-up show in the autumn of 2012, following a stint at the Edinburgh Festival at the EICC. The venue’s programme will also include Jimmy Carr, Jason Byrne, Jimeoin and Daniel Sloss.

Davies told Graham Norton on his BBC1 show: ‘Im going on tour later this year.

‘I haven’t done a stand-up tour for 12 years. We went out to Australia and we did QI live, and while I was there I did a stand-up 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.’

Davies last appeared at the Edinburgh festival in 2005 in an adaptation of Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple at the Assembly Hall.
