Alan Davies to Bring LITTLE VICTORIES to the O2; Kicks Off Autumn Tour, Sept 26

Following the phenomenal success of his Spring tour earlier this year, Alan Davies has announced a further tour this Autumn of his brand new show, Little Victories.

His previous show, Life Is Pain - his first UK tour in over a decade - was critically acclaimed in Australia, New Zealand and across the UK and due to unprecedented public demand, was extended twice running for almost eighteen months culminating in the release of a DVD of the show filmed at London's iconic Apollo Hammersmith.

Alan Davies - probably best known as the much-loved resident dunderhead on QI or the star of iconic television series Jonathan Creek - 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 two appearances on C4's Viva Cabaret led to a nomination for a British Comedy Award as Best Newcomer.

In 1994 he won an Edinburgh Festival Critics Award for Comedy and a Perrier Award Nomination and the show was released on VHS as Live At The Lyric. The following year he appeared at the Montreal, Melbourne and Auckland Comedy Festivals and was nominated for a British Comedy Award as Best Stand-Up Comedian..

In 1996 he took the eponymous role of Jonathan Creek, written by David Renwick. The show continues to attract huge audiences and has won numerous awards, including a BAFTA for Best Drama and a National TV Award

His 1998 show, Urban Trauma ran at the Duchess Theatre before touring the UK and was recorded for a DVD and shown on BBC1 with a documentary series about the tour, Stand-Up with Alan Davies.

In 2001 Alan took the role of Bob in Russel T.Davies' Bob & Rose for which he was awarded Best Actor in a Drama at the Monte Carlo Television Awards.

In 2002, he starred in Auntie and Me by Morris Panych for another sell-out season at Edinburgh before transferring to the Wyndham's Theatre for a four month West End run. That same year Alan took part in a comedy pilot hosted by Stephen Fry. QI has subsequently run every year since 2003.

The lead role in two series of the ITV1 legal drama, The Brief, followed, and in 2009 Penguin published his first book, My Favourite People 1978-1988 which was adapted into a three part documentary series for Channel 4 called Teenage Revolution (also the title for the paperback).

In 2010 he took the lead role of chef Roland White in the BBC2 sitcom Whites and in 2011 Alan co-wrote and starred in a short film for Sky One as part of their Little Crackers Christmas season before returning to Australia for a successful tour of QI Live followed by a sell-out tour of his new stand-up show, Life Is Pain.

Alan starred in a new series of Jonathan Creek this Spring and is currently recording a new series of QI.
