Greg Davies: Firing Cheeseballs at a Dog
You’ll already know Greg Davies as the psychotic Head of Sixth Form, Mr Gilbert in The Inbetweeners (Ch4) and as the most out-of-shape member of We are Klang (BBC3). His hotly anticipated debut stand-up show was a critically lauded sell-out smash hit at the 2010 Edinburgh festival, picking up a prestigious nomination for the Fosters Comedy Award (formerly the Perrier). Following a sell-out autumn tour and a spring 2011 extension added due to popular demand, now’s your chance to see this incredible stand-up show, live on DVD. It promises to address every single issue important to the human race. But it lies - it won’t address any. Buy it though, it’ll be funny.
This comes across as Greg doing a reading from his autobiogrpahy, so is quite different that your normal stand up shows.
At the start, I wasn't keen on it, but he reels you in and some of it is actually quite sweet, then funny, then sweet, then funny again.
Hilarious and engaging, Greg Davies is one of the few people talented enough to be self-deprecating without sounding overly pitiful. His anecdotes aren't always laugh-out-loud hilarious but his affability and charm more than make up for the occasional clunkers in his set. Spins me right round, that dude.
My favourite live comedian just now
Who knew a man so big and stern looking could be this funny? The stuff about his parents and school and ... just watch it if you like good British stand up or saw him on the Inbetweeners.
