LONDON, ENGLAND, February 04, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- After a 12 year respite from the stand-up circuit, British actor and comedian, Alan Davies, returns to London as part of his new and long-awaited stand-up tour. Davies, who is best known for his comedic quips and humorously pedagogic relationship with Stephen Fry on BBC's 'QI' and popular drama 'Jonathon Creek', has not set foot on stage for over a decade. The tour, 'Life is Pain', marks his welcome return to stage, with the London leg taking place at the famous Hammersmith Apollo in a weekend of back-to-back performances. LondonTown.com, the capital's most popular events and listings site, include all the tour details and helpful travelling advice for those coming outside of the capital, offering information on local hotels in London and nearby London eateries.
With a reputation and knack for making light of life's finer details, Alan Davies certainly has the everyman appeal, adept at making mockery of and highlighting common grievances. Popular for his wit and tomfoolery on 'QI', the 'Life is Pain' tour promises to feature Davies' characteristic but hilariously awkward comedic moments, expressed through his chatty demeanour.
'Life is Pain' is tinged with nostalgia as Davies wades through memories of childhood holidays, reminiscing about the way things were, what's changed and his reaction to it all. Straight talking and effortlessly engaging, the show is something of an autobiography, delivered with blokeish charisma as the nation's favourite fop-haired comic takes his audience on a journey through his life's deepest and darkest - yet cleverly contrasted - injustices.
Prepare to hear about a little bit of everything as Davies sets sail on a journey that explores language (think that of his fellow Essex countrymen), the imminent end of the world and the various reckonings, the not so dazzling lights of social media, the recent London riots and his own childhood and upbringing.
The show is surrounded by a real sense of nostalgia and is noted by critics to be not just hugely entertaining but also poignant and touching: Davies covers the effect his mother's death had on him at the tender age of six. Clever, funny and yet deeply moving, audiences should be prepared for a roller coaster of high jinks at the Hammersmith that will leave them feeling uplifted and life affirmed. Quite interesting just got quite entertaining - not one to be missed!
