Greg Davies is the tallest man in the world. If he's not, he's certainly the tallest comedian you've ever seen, and he's ferocious to go with it. Well, he at least tries to be.
Greg was late getting into comedy, although his former students may not think the same. He was a teacher for thirteen years, teaching Drama at Sandhurst Comprehensive and Orleans Park School and English and Drama at Langleywood Secondary School in Berkshire.
After breaking out of education, Greg won his first award in 2002 when he won the Laughing Horse New Act of the Year and was also a finalist in 'So You Think You're Funny' the same year.
The nominations and awards kept coming after that as in 2003 Greg was a runner up in ITV's 'Take The Mike' competition, a finalist in the Leicester Mercury New Act of the Year and nominated for Best New Act of the Year at the Chortle Awards.
He was nominated again at the Chortle Awards in 2007 in the Breakthrough Act category, and in 2010 was nominated for the main prize at the Edinburgh Festival.
Greg Davies' stand up persona is a lot less fierce than the role he takes in We Are Klang, the comedy troupe he performs in with Marek Larwood and Steve Hall with which he won the 2004 Edinburgh Spirit Of The Fringe Award and was nominated for the main Edinburgh Comedy prize in 2006.
Greg will regale the audience with tales form his teaching career and the antics of his father, whom he describes as 'mental on purpose'. You can't help at chuckle and laugh at the stories of his sister miming a sexual act to their mother and his father waiting in a bush to 'give his son a bit of a scare.'
For those who are regular sitcom viewers, Greg Davies is probably best known for his scene stealing performances as Head of Sixth Form Mr Gilbert in Channel 4's The Inbetweeners.
He has of course had his own series with We Are Klang on BBC3.
Greg also lends his acting talents on the CBBC channel playing characters such as Guy Fawkes and William Shakespeare.
His impressions don't stop there, as Greg has played cricketing legend WG Grace for the idents of Channel 4's cricket coverage. He has also acted in Steve Coogan's Saxondale series and has appeared on Mock The Week, 8 Out Of 10 Cats and Never Mind The Buzzcocks.
With so many strings to his bow, it is almost surprising that Greg continues to perform solo stand up. But after you've giggled along to the stories that he spins, you will be glad he does.
Greg Davies is a very funny comedian, who has the ability to warm even the coldest of hearts.
