Quickfire interview with Greg Davies

How would you describe your style of comedy?

‘At the moment it’s largely a dangerously out of shape man telling silly tales.’

Who or what makes you laugh?

‘As far as characters are concerned, Alan Partridge makes me wet myself. I’m currently reading the book and have started talking like him as an unfortunate consequence.’

What subject wouldn’t you joke about?

‘I try and make myself or consenting people I am very close to the victims of my comedy. I don’t enjoy bullying masquerading as comedy.’

What’s the most memorable heckle you’ve received?

‘Years ago at a circuit gig someone shouted “You’re a 6’ 8” tower of piss.” Entirely accurate at the time.’

What’s the best/worst thing about being a comedian?

‘There is nothing bad about this job. Comedians have nothing to complain about. That doesn’t mean I’m not constantly moaning and worrying. Anyone close to me will tell you I am a right whinging prick.’
