QI and Jonathan Creek star Alan Davies has confirmed he will be coming to Middlesbrough for his new show Little Victories.

The comedian is set to perform at the Town Hall on Friday 30 October 2015, nearly two years after his last show on Teesside in 2013.

His last performance was part of his Life is Pain tour, which marked a return to stand-up after a 12-year gap:

I love stand up and I really like touring – I get a big kick out of it. It’s a really nice thing to do.

Having been away from stand-up for so long, I initially returned to it rather unwillingly. But now I count my blessings, which is something you don’t always do when you’re younger.

– Alan Davies

Davies joins a growing list of top comics including Jimmy Carr, Dara O Briain, Alan Carr and Katherine Ryan all heading for the Town Hall this year.

Tickets go on sale on Thursday morning at 10am.
