Alan Davies is to bring his Little Victories tour to Middlesbrough Town Hall.

On Friday 30 October 2015, the comic and QI star will return to the venue following his previous visit to Teesside in November 2013.

Tickets for the new show will go on sale via Middlesbrough Town Hall’s Box Office and online at 10am on Thursday 29 January.

Best known as a resident on panel show QI and as TV investigator Jonathan Creek, Davies last appeared at the venue in 2013 as part of his Life is Pain tour; a show that marked Davies’ return to stand up after a twelve year break.

Davies said: “I love stand up. And I really like touring – I get a big kick out of it. It’s a really nice thing to do.

“Having been away from stand-up for so long, I initially returned to it rather unwillingly. But now I count my blessings, which is something you don’t always do when you’re younger.

“I went to Sweden in 2012 with QI producer John Lloyd to watch a recording of their version of QI. They had also asked me to do a stand-up show.

“I said ‘Really, will they get it?’ But sure enough, the Swedish audience understood every single word and were loudly enthusiastic.

“Afterwards John said to me ‘Every night people laugh and clap and leave happy. It’s not a bad job is it?’ I said ‘It’s a great job.’”
