Alan Davies' tour "Little Victories" is just his second in 12 years, and he is keen to make up for lost time.
“I love stand-up,” beams the comedian. “I really like touring - I get a big kick out of it.
“I don’t find it arduous at all.
“It’s that or a 17-hour day looking after toddlers, which is much more difficult,” says the father of two, before adding: “Stand-up is a doddle comparatively; you go around the country making people laugh.”
Davies, 48, spent 11 years as a panellist on popular BBC2 show QI.
But the Loughton-born comic starts his latest UK tour on Thursday (3) and will perform at Fairfield Halls on April 12.
Since his hiatus from the stage, he has been overwhelmed by the support for his last tour “Life Is Pain”.
“They’ve made an effort to come out, they’ve booked the babysitter.
“It’s important never to forget that they have come specifically to see you,” he says.
Tickets priced between £20 - £25 can be bought online at 0208 688 9291 for the show at Fairfield Halls, Park Lane, Croydon, CR9 1DG.
