3. JUST FOR LAUGHS
A TRUE giant of the comedy scene is set to hit the big time in Doncaster tonight.
For towering funnyman Greg Davies - who stands at 6ft 8in tall - arrives at The Dome’s Icebreaker Comedy Club tonight for a show that’s set to have them rolling in the aisles.
The former teacher is best known for his roles as Greg in We Are Klang and as Mr Gilbert in smash hit Channel 4 show The Inbetweeners and also his regular appearances on panel shows such as Mock The Week and Have I Got News For You.
In 2002, he won the Laughing Horse New Act of The Year competition and in 2007 was nominated three times in the Chortle Awards and his first solo stand-up show Firing Cheeseballs At A Dog was nominated for the Fosters Edinburgh Comedy Awards at the Edinburgh Festival.
