Foolish behaviour is just as likely to be celebrated than mocked, provided it comes from a place of child-like abandon. That also gets him over some bumps in the show around the three-quarters mark where the stories don’t quite hang together perfectly, although they remain very funny. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows. It's just the fact that Greg Davies sometimes starts fake laughing about a joke he's going to tell and that is a bit annoying. It’s a great conclusion to a uproarious night of anecdotes, told by a real pro, who rather than resting on his TV laurels is cementing his position of one of Britain’s finest storytelling comedians.He concedes that the minor details in a creepy tale from an American driving holiday make it sounds like it was written by Stephen King; while the pair of childhood mates he takes to a rock festival in a hideously misguided attempt to recapture their youth seem like a comic-book threesome: one giant, one tiny man, and one pencil-thin. Is it part of a comedian’s personality that means they attract more than their share of strange experiences – or are they simply better equipped to spot them and retell them? It turns out that it refers to the last thing the young Davies would see after being chastised for his odd behaviour. He seems genuinely excited to be brining the audience into his confidence, like close mates, even starting off by confessing to problems with his undergarments this evening.

Ed Gamble was delayed by a miserable rail service meltdown, and in voiceover Davies delights in the fact he’s shoving him straight on to the stage, 20 minutes later than planned, sweating and breathless after his run from the station. It’s not normal, love,’ his mild-mannered mum would say, turning on her heels and walking off in exasperation. Davies Snr makes a couple of appearances here, perhaps to recalibrate the meter of ‘normal behaviour’ and serve as a reminder of where Davies got his eccentricities from, even if watered down over the generation. A vague theme of the show is that Davies resents the fact he’s had to grow up, and wants to remain that teenager confusing his mum.

While many comics spin out their tales seeking laughs in the details, Davies distils many his yarns down to only their funny essence, moving quickly from one tale to the next. Star of BAFTA award-winning The Inbetweeners and BBC Three's Cuckoo, much-loved towering beacon of comedy Greg Davies is one of the most successful stand-ups in the UK. Not that it is not funny because there are some funny moments in it but to me You Magnificent Beast was his best.
