After Dinner & Event Speaker (in association with SpeakOut)
Alan Davies is one of the UK's best known actors and comedians. Starring in the BBC hit series Jonathan Creek for an incredible 13 years, Alan became synonymous with the quirky, magic conjuring, crime-solving eponymous character. The series returns to the small screen in 2013.
Aside from Jonathan Creek, Alan Davies has enjoyed a hugely varied acting career to date with credits including playing the lead in Whites, Bob and Rose, and The Brief. He has also had supporting roles in the teen film Angus Thongs and Perfect Snogging, and in ITV's detective series' Lewis, and Hotel Babylon.
Now a mainstay of the long running comedy trivia quiz show QI, Alan is the much maligned team captain, alongside host Stephen Fry and a myriad of guest stars. It's tenth series was broadcast in the Autumn of 2012.
Performing stand up since the early '90's, Alan won the Edinburgh Festival Critics Award in 1994 and went on to tour his show, Urban Trauma, in 1998. After a brief hiatus from the stand up circuit, Alan returned to the stage in 2012 with his hit tour, Life is Pain.
