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.
Greg’s many television appearances also include the most recent series of Live at The Apollo and Have I Got News for You, as a regular on Ask Rhod Gilbert (BBC1) - as well as appearances on Mock the Week, 8 Out of 10 Cats and Never Mind the Buzzcocks.

We get the same old format (cant really fault them but it can get tiring), the same old performers (lee evans still going strong), the mock the week crew all with their offerings (not another russell howard dvd, hes got a box set now dont you know), some very good newcomers like micky flanagan and stephen merchant and the usual rehashing of old shows and repackaging (russell brands "new" new york live show dvd complete with years old material), but greg davies' stands out by a country mile.
Not only is it good to see someone new getting their dvd on, but it is also a huge bonus when someone youve liked on their various appearances and shows comes out with a fresh, hilarious and original show. I havent laughed this hard during a stand-up for years, it caught me off guard and it kept me hooked every second of the way through.
What greg has done here isnt vastly unique (gone is the one man and his microphone routine), with a flip chart and little book of short stories being the props used but it just helps things along a bit - and considering plenty of the material is about greg during his teaching days the flipchart doesnt feel out of place. Everyone seems to be trying to use a little gimmick to make their show a bit more visually entertaining (stephen merchants encore is an ingenious example) but this is used subtly and acts as a small visual aid to what is central to the show - storytelling.Read more ›
Hope you do more tours Greg !!
The routine takes the form of a series of relatively short stories about his life during various periods, and each is funnier than the last. As you'd expect he makes fun of himself a lot, and his family, and there's a fair share of shouting and swearing but every second is brilliant.
There's not much more you can say without giving away some of the jokes, but if you've ever liked Greg in anything you've seen him in so far, go for this DVD as it's probably the best that I've seen so far this year, and that includes Peter Kay and Jason Manford.
