Essex-born Alan Davies had cemented himself in the comedy industry before making the crossover to television.

First appearing in Jonathan Creek in 1997 and A Many Splintered Thing in 1998, his performance achieved critical acclaim. Jonathan Creek is still a highly acclaimed series.

Maintaining his links with comedy, Alan presented a documentary series on stand-up comedians in 2000. He has taken his own stand-up shows to Edinburgh Fringe festivals and he has performed at prestigious venues such as The Apollo.
