Don't miss Alan Davies at the Shanklin Theatre

Fans of comedy genius Alan Davies won't want to pass up the opportunity to see the TV personality perform his popular stand-up show Life is Pain.

The funnyman, writer and actor, who is also well-known as the main part of mystery television series Jonathan Creek, is taking to the stage in venues all over the UK this autumn.

Anyone who is planning a trip to the Isle of Wight might want to coincide their visit with Davies' gig at the Shanklin Theatre, which is situated in the picturesque and friendly area of Sandown Bay.

The comedian is playing at the venue on November 15th, and people who have seen him on shows like QI alongside Stephen Fry and heard him on various radio programmes will know they are in for a real treat.

It's a great way to make your holiday to the island memorable, particularly as the autumn weather will be firmly upon us by then and there may not be many outdoors events being held.

The Guardian has called Davies "one of the best stand-up comics out there" and claimed his Life is Pain show is "packed with deft silliness and shrewd observation", while according to the Big Issue, "Alan Davies has lost none of his appeal" and his routine is "heart-tugging and deeply funny".

If that sounds up your street then don't hesitate and book tickets as soon as possible - admission is £25 (or £20 for concessions) and passes are already being quickly snapped up.

The show will contain adult material, so it is best suited to couples or families with children aged 15 and above.

This autumn is set to be action-packed for the comedian, as along with the Shanklin Theatre date he is performing in tons of other popular venues all over the country.

He is visiting most major cities as part of his Life is Pain tour, including Aberystwyth, Wolverhampton, York, Hull, Torquay and Plymouth.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801644535-ADNFCR
