Product Description

Product Description

Greg Davies, star of Channel 4's Man Down, The Inbetweeners and BBC Three's Cuckoo, also happens to be one of the best stand-ups in the UK.

The Back of My Mum's Head is his riotously funny 2012/13 live show, so successful it sold out dates across the UK again and again. This smash-hit show was recorded live at The Salford Lowry.

Experience the critically acclaimed comedian at his best, live on stage. Stung by his mother's suggestion that he is 'not normal' Greg puts everyone under the microscope in a petty quest to discover if anyone actually is. The analysis is far from scientific and the conclusions, at best, spurious. To be clear, as an educational tool this show is worthless. It is funny though.

‘A joyous celebration of our shared idiocy and a snook cocked at self-importance'--The Guardian

Extras:
- Audio Commentary with Greg Davies & Ed Gamble
- On A Barge with Greg & Marsha - Marsha Shandur interviews Greg
- Behind the Back of My Mum's Head - Behind The Scenes featurette

Lucky to see Greg Davies in Southend on Sea, his first stand up DVD was by my count one of the Funniest I've seen in about 10 years!
He has the most amazing stage presence, the funniest material, and is a joy to watch.
My stomach and throat today are both in pain as i was laughing so loud and for about 90 minutes straight!
Cant wait to watch this again at home.
GO BUY IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I like Greg Davies but hadn’t really thought about him doing stand up until recently coming across this on Amazon. With the good reviews it got, and the strange title of the DVD, I was looking forward to it. I’m glad I gave it a watch because my boyfriend and I really enjoyed it, so it’s definitely one I’d recommend.

Greg Davies has been in a few shows over the years (the most recent that comes to mind at the moment is his role as the head teacher in The Inbetweeners, as well as appearing on shows like Never Mind The Buzzcosks, Have I Got News For You etc) and I’ve always thought he’s a down to earth but comical guy. Firing Cheeseballs At A Dog, a rather inventive name and actually based upon a true story he shares in the DVD, is his debut stand up. It was a sell out at the 2010 Edinburgh festival and received nominations, followed by sell out tours in 2010 and 2011, which I believe he extended because it was so popular.

Greg appears very laid back during his stand up, dressed as an average guy and yet appearing neither snooty nor slobby. This gives him a very warm and welcoming appeal because he’s ‘down to earth’, yet understated because he’s actually very funny! The premise of his stand up is that he addresses true stories of his, so he recounts tales throughout his life and the issues involved. He does this roughly in chronological order, such as working through his early years, teens, adulthood etc. The stories are tales of times with friends, in school, as a teacher, his parents, anything and everything really that has been part of his life that he has a tale to tell about. And he’s got a lot to talk about.

Part way through he enlists the help of a girl in the audience to read a title from his notebook. This gives him a sideline tale to tell (ie.

Having followed me Davies from his first stand ups through klang and having seen and loved his first DVD, we were genuinely looking forward to this. From the very start we laughed out loud to the point I really thought I had nothing left to give. My wife summed it up best by saying, I havent laughed that much for ages.
he comes across as a genuine gent who laughs almost as much as the audience covering everything from children to a holiday across America (we cried laughing at that bit) and includes his amazing family. He even made us laugh with a song about bonsai trees.
highly recommended for fans of irreverant and slightly surreal comedy.
I cannot wait for his next tour and DVD and would love to buy him a beer

I bought this for our son for Christmas after going to see this show live in Warwick uni a few weeks ago. It was quite simply the funniest live show we have ever seen, and that is amongst the likes of Dara, Lenny Henry, Rob Brydon, Michael Mcintyre etc.. We just laughed and laughed and laughed all the way through the show. An absolute triumph. Superb.

I was there the night he recorded this at the Lowry in Salford and it was incredible. Words can't describe how funny this man is. If you thought "Firing Cheeseballs at a Dog" was funny (it was very) this will not disappoint! I was in tears from start to finish on the night. I can't wait to buy this DVD and relive it. Just buy it, the man is a genius!!

I have been a big fan of Greg since the Inbetweeners, when he announced his first stand up tour I was excited to see it, unfortunately I couldn't get tickets so bought the DVD and laughed from start to finish on multiple viewings.

When he announced The Back of my Mum's Head I made it my mission to see him live, luckily I got two very good seats at the High Wycombe Swan, which was an added date.

My fiance and I have never laughed so hard for so long. Truly funny man. The material in this one is just as strong as Cheeseballs. A must see.

If you only buy one DVD, buy this one. This man is genius and if you don't laugh all the way through there is something seriously wrong with you!
If you don't own his first DVD you best get that one too.
