About this deal

Still, Gamble – whose material is a good match for Davies’s self-deprecatory tales – deals with it well and slowly warms up the large audience with his tales of an intimate medical examination.

While the name of Greg Davies’s last, excellent, show Throwing Cheeseballs At A Dog was an accurate representation of the central anecdote, The Back Of My Mum’s Head is more esoteric. comedy Award nominated comedian, Greg has performed on numerous TV Shows including: '8 Out Of 10 Cats' (Channel 4), 'Mock the Week' (BBC Two), 'Never Mind The Buzzcocks' (BBC Two). Star of BAFTA award-winning The Inbetweeners and BBC Three's Cuckoo, much-loved towering beacon of comedy Greg Davies is one of the most successful stand-ups in the UK. This show is funny, but to be clear, if you're looking for insight into the human condition you'll be better off eating a bun or picking up a stick. Ed Gamble was delayed by a miserable rail service meltdown, and in voiceover Davies delights in the fact he’s shoving him straight on to the stage, 20 minutes later than planned, sweating and breathless after his run from the station.

You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. He concedes that the minor details in a creepy tale from an American driving holiday make it sounds like it was written by Stephen King; while the pair of childhood mates he takes to a rock festival in a hideously misguided attempt to recapture their youth seem like a comic-book threesome: one giant, one tiny man, and one pencil-thin. Foolish behaviour is just as likely to be celebrated than mocked, provided it comes from a place of child-like abandon.

Is it part of a comedian’s personality that means they attract more than their share of strange experiences – or are they simply better equipped to spot them and retell them? While many comics spin out their tales seeking laughs in the details, Davies distils many his yarns down to only their funny essence, moving quickly from one tale to the next.

It's just the fact that Greg Davies sometimes starts fake laughing about a joke he's going to tell and that is a bit annoying. A couple of times, he presents a series of tales as a Top 5 countdown – of his favourite involuntary noises, or most shockingly inappropriate lines he’s heard – the former being punctuated by the audience’s cacophonous, ill-timed attempt at the old Pick Of The Pops theme.
