Greg Davies is perhaps best known as the psychotic Head of Sixth Form Mr. Gilbert in The Inbetweeners (Channel 4) and in The Inbetweeners Movie – The highest grossing British comedy of all time.
In 2010, Greg’s debut solo stand up show Firing Cheeseballs At A Dog delighted audiences at the Edinburgh Festival with tales of his childhood and the tribulations of his former teaching career. The show was nominated for the prestigious Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award which led to a thrice extended sell-out national tour. The DVD of the show was released in November 2011 and was a Top 10 bestseller.
Greg has appeared on numerous TV shows, including hosting Never Mind The Buzzcocks (BBC Two) and Live At The Apollo (BBC One). He has also made guest appearances on The Royal Variety Show, Room 101(BBC One), Mock The Week (BBC Two), Let’s Dance For Comic Relief and Sport Relief (BBC One), Would I Lie To You? (BBC One), The Graham Norton Show (BBC One), Live At The Apollo (BBC One), Frank Skinner’s Opinionated (BBC Two)and 8 Out Of 10 Cats (Channel 4). Greg was team captain on two series of Ask Rhod Gilbert (BBC One) with whom he also appeared on BBC Two’s Dangerous Roads. He has recently finished filming for new BBC3 sitcom Cuckoo with Andy Samberg and Helen Baxendale which will air later on this year. He has written and stars in Man Down, a new sitcom pilot for Channel 4.
Greg is one third of the anarchically brilliant sketch act We Are Klang, who performed four critically acclaimed sell-out Edinburgh Festival shows and were nominated in 2006 for the Edinburgh Comedy Award. With We Are Klang, Greg wrote and starred in the group’s own sitcom series and a one-off comedy entertainment special for BBC Three.
Greg had a very successful tour in 2012 – The Back Of My Mum’s Head.
