A renowned British comedian with a distinct style, Alan Davies has established himself as one of the finest entertainment acts in the country. A regular on television panel shows as well as stand up tours and television dramas, he has a charm that ensures his sky-high reputation with audiences.
Prior to his big TV break, Davies played comedy gigs in his locality of Whistable, before expanding his efforts. Three years after he began on the comedy scene at the age of 22, he was named Time Out magazine’s Best Young Comic in 1991. This would see him tour regularly around the country, as well as Australia in the years that followed. By 1994 he would win the Critics Award at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, leading to a role on spoof travel show, One for the Road.
Davies’ career was about to hit full flight. After heading up his own radio show on the BBC, a sitcom he wrote and starred in called The Alan Davies Show, he was soon to take on a project that would stand the test of time.
Next up he would play the lead on BBC One’s mystery TV hit, Jonathan Creek, a show which spanned five series between 1997 and 2016. His role as the quick-witted and smart unraveller of mysteries made Davies a household name. The show would gain national acclaim and win a BAFTA for Best Drama.
Soon his comic nous was in significant demand, and he subsequently took on a role as a member of the comedy panel on QI – TV’s favourite comedy intellect show. There he would form one of TV’s favourite unwritten double acts with the show’s host, Stephen Fry.
A hilarious presenter, comedian and actor, Davies has lit up our screens time and time again over the years. Holding both a childlike curiosity and a mature intellect, he can blend the mundane with the exciting and the intellectual with the bizarre in a way that few comedians in the country can.
Perfect as an award or event host or stand up comedian to entertain all manner of audiences, Alan Davies is in-demand across the event circuit.
