Greenwich Comedy Festival 2017: Alan Davies, Kerry Godliman, Nish Kumar, Andrew Maxwell
Much lauded as resident dunderhead on QI or the charming but reticent crime solver Jonathan Creek, Davies virtuosic story-telling and whip-smart funny bones combine as he heads to Greenwich Comedy Festival for an unmissable night in the Big Top.
Joining Alan is an astounding supporting cast with razor-sharp Live At The Apollo star Kerry Godliman, the wildly acclaimed Have I Got News For You regular Nish Kumar and Irish rabble rouser Andrew Maxwell as host.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
English comedian, writer and actor, best known for starring in the mystery series Jonathan Creek and the panel show QI.
Alan began his career in stand-up comedy in 1988 and was runner-up in the City Limits New Act of the Year contest 1989. He was named Time Out Best Young Comic in 1991 and made his network television debut on Tonight with Jonathan Ross in 1992. In 1993 he was nominated for a British Comedy Award as Best Newcomer. Since then, Alan has gone on to appear on TV and on the stage, winning Best Actor in a Drama at the Monte Carlo Television Awards for his 2001 role of Bob in Russel T Davies’ Bob And Rose.
After returning from Australia following a successful tour of QI Live, Alan went back to his stand-up roots in 2012 with 'Life Is Pain', and is back on the road in 2013 with his highly anticipated follow up show, 'Little Victories'.
