Greg Davies extends The Back Of My Mum's Head 2013 UK tour

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.
