Greg Davies extends The Back Of My Mum's Head 2013 UK tour
Extra shows for May and the autumn confirmed on the back of TV show Cuckoo's success. Tickets on sale now
After an impressive run of mostly sold-out shows last year, Welsh mountain of comedy Greg Davies has chosen to continue to do the same throughout 2013. His 'The Back of My Mum's Head' tour will make a re-appearance in towns that may have missed out on his likeable presence first time around, perhaps with a few tweaks here and there.
Since our last report, Davies has been busy appearing on the usual panel-game shows and appearing in the BBC3 comedy sit-com Cuckoo with Andy Samberg and Helen Baxendale, which although not quite up there with The Inbetweeners, still pulled in just under a million viewers a week and, for its first showing, became the channel's most-watched comedy programme, beating Jack Whitehall's Bad Education with one swing of its first episode. And that was up against the Victoria sponge-wielding anarchy of the Great British Bake-Off - boof.
But it's back to stand-up for Davies as we await to see whether a second series of the quirky sit-com gets commissioned. The first clutch of new 'The Back of My Mum's Head' shows begins in May at Winchester's Theatre Royal on the 19th, followed by a handful more in Reading, Bournemouth, High Wycombe and finally Salford for two shows on 24th and 25th.
There follows a lengthy summer break before Greg Davies returns for a longer stretch, starting in Margate on 12th November and continuing around the UK until Sheffield on 3rd December. Tickets on sale now, priced from £20 for the May shows and £25 for the autumnal ones.
