Following the sellout success of his long-awaited return to stand up, Alan Davies' previews his highly anticipated follow-up show, Little Victories.

One of Ireland's funniest comedians, who produces laughs like a magician produces rabbits from a hat. With a growing reputation as a stand-up around the world, including an appearance at the Just For Laughs festival in Montreal, he originally made a name for himself in Ireland with his contributions to the satirical panel show Don't Feed the Gondolas and then stepped into the mainstream limelight with the hit show It's A Family Affair.
The double British Comedy Award Winner, RTS Winner and BAFTA nominee is back.
A unique opportunity to see the man himself up close and personal before he embarks on a massive UK tour. Punchlines is Dave's latest comedy project in his long career. Punchlines generally derive their humour from being unexpected - "Punch" indicating that the "Line" should always come as a surprise or shock. The major school of thought suggests that very few Punchlines are inherently funny out of context. There is another school of thought (actually Dave's school of thought) that the opposite can be true. In this new show he will present evidence to support this. He quotes : - "Where do you want your blinds?"/ "It's not my dog" /That's my Thermos flask !". Then of course there are nuns. Nuns in baths, Nuns on bikes and Prince Charles wearing a fox hat. Dave will argue that you don't always need a Punchline for a joke to be hilarious and suggests that if you doubt him, you should ask the bloke with the big orange head.
With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America's pre-eminent humour writers.

Can we go home?' But things have changed. Now she has outside slippers. She can tell a chaffinch from a tit (hey). But she still can't tell if it's an owl or her husband's asthma.
