As a stand-up, Greg’s debut solo show Firing Cheeseballs At A Dog was nominated for the prestigious Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award in 2010, and went on to have a three-time extended sell-out national tour. In 2013 Greg returned with another sell-out tour with The Back of My Mum’s Head. The DVDs for both shows became Top 10 bestsellers. Greg’s 2017 tour, You Magnificent Beast sold out the Hammersmith Apollo and Cardiff Motorpoint Arena and was later released as a Netflix Special.

“I have worked on over 200 awards dinners over the years and I can honestly say that Greg Davies’ hosting skills and performances rate in my top ten of all time. My publishing company clients that I work on behalf of also agree.”
“Greg was really fantastic. His comedy was great and pitched at just the right level (not too rude / not too tame) for the crowd. He also got a good balance of being a bit cheeky to our suppliers but making sure they all left loving him. Our guests definitely thought he was a success!”
"Greg had the audience in stitches for his set. My own Director was telling me today how hard he laughed! Thank you for making it such a smooth booking and look forward to working with you again on something else in the future.”
