After a decade away from the stand-up stage, one of the UK's best- loved comedians and actors, Alan Davies, made his return to live performance last autumn, and brings his show to Lichfield this month for what is sure to be one of the hottest tickets at this year's Lichfield Festival.
Davies began his career in stand-up comedy in 1988 and was named Time Out's Best Young Comic in 1991, making his network television debut on Tonight with Jonathan Ross a year later.
After continued success as a stand-up, in 1996 he took the title role in BBC mystery drama Jonathan Creek, written by David Renwick. The show ran for 14 years and has been seen by audiences worldwide. More acclaimed television and stage roles followed, and in 2002 Davies took part in a comedy pilot hosted by Stephen Fry. QI has subsequently run every year since 2003, cementing Davies' place as one of the nation's best-loved comic talents.
