Alan Davies: Life Is PainAfter a decade away from stand-up, the comedian, writer and actor Alan Davies, perhaps best known for his starring role in TV series Jonathan Creek, continues his UK tour with these back-to-back weekend performance at the Hammersmith Apollo. Straightforward, autobiographical and brimming with "blokey-fogeyish bewilderment" and "droll close-to-home riffs about parenting" (The Telegraph), this nostalgic show sees the affable Davies plough through a raft of contrasting topics including the language employed by fellow Essex men, the imminent end of the world, social media, the London riots and his upbringing, touching even on the effect of his mother's death when he was six. During his drought from stand-up, Davies became a regular on the Stephen Fry-fronted QI. Reviews of 'Life is Pain' seem to be pretty unanimous: the dunce from QI is in fact QE - quite entertaining.

 

About Hammersmith Apollo

Once London's largest all-seater venue, the Hammersmith Apollo has a 3,600 capacity for seated shows and a 5,000 capacity for standing-room-only gigs. It was renovated in 2002, and now works well as a venue for theatre (hosting a huge variety of shows from Riverdance to Thomas the Tank Engine) as well as rock concerts.
