At heart, it’s a brilliant example of a mainstream sitcom… but with a twist and heart of its own. Channel 4 – and Greg Davies – deserve to have a monster hit on their hands” Since July 2015 Davies has been the host of the panel game show Taskmaster. In December 2015, he starred in BBC Two's comedy drama A Gert Lush Christmas where he played Tony, the uncle of Russell and Kerry Howard's characters. On Christmas Day he played King Hydroflax in the 2015 Doctor Who Special " The Husbands of River Song". [21] Breaking Ads – Channel 4 – Ashes coverage". Newspaper Marketing Agency.

I went with three others and we had decided to go for a drink and meal before the show, which made us late for the doors opening at 7, but we knew the doors to the actual auditorium would not open till about half past. However even with our being late we sat for around half an hour before the supporting act was introduced and then again sat waiting for another half an hour till 9 for Greg himself to come on. We felt a little short changed when we were waiting but as soon as the show started we shook off the slight disappointment.

He over-eggs a reconstruction of a phone call between himself and his mother that shows their contrasting views on life, but it does come with a great punchline, courtesy of Davies’s ebullient father, who fans will remember from the previous show. Davies Snr makes a couple of appearances here, perhaps to recalibrate the meter of ‘normal behaviour’ and serve as a reminder of where Davies got his eccentricities from, even if watered down over the generation. Also as good as the show was I felt like it wasn’t quite long or developed enough, I think the show could have been improved with a little more audience participation (not just the same 3 people in the front row… by the mic…). a b "Wem's Greg Davies makes it big".

The slide show above shows some of the shaky stills I managed to capture with my camera phone in the hope to demonstrate my thoughts and opinions on the show. Davies weaves a magnificent web. Fact or fiction, he sells the whole show, frequently leaving you helpless with laughter.”

Wilson, Chris (15 June 2013). "Heights of success". The Stage. Archived from the original on 31 December 2013 . Retrieved 26 July 2013.About half way through the show Greg invited two members of the audience to do a short role play with him. One woman would play his mother and reveal where Greg got the idea for this show, and the other would play his dad; there to simply have the last word. The role play’s script worked well as part of the section of the show Greg was playing out, and the fact that in the role play Greg’s mother; after saying something silly begs him not make this conversation part of his show, she goes to great lengths making him promise. i think this part of the role play works so well is because we know what happens after this conversation, we know the greg didn’t only break his promise and put the conversation in his show, he based his entire show around his mum, this conversation being the inspiration.
