Marlon Davis: Crackin' Up

Marlon Davies, in association with Off The Kerb Productions, presents an hour-long, whistle-stop tour of an episode in his life in which he 'cracked up' and almost brought about the ruination of a seven-year relationship. An energetic, exciting and incredibly heartfelt hour, this show cements Davies' place amongst the ranks of definite up-and-comers on the British comedy circuit.

The genius of Davies' light-hearted yet passionate approach to comedy lies in his ability to bring an audience to its knees with gags about fairly niche subjects such as the computer game Football Manager. Even those who remain oblivious to such subjects can revel in Davies' joy and charm. With the excitement and energy of a teenage boy, Davies is the ultimate likeable comedian, and his personable and chatty style immediately connects him to every member of the audience, regardless of age or background.

Davies is a comedian in possession of rare talent not often seen on the stand-up comedy circuit. Davies, charming and undoubtedly hilarious, performs an entire hour-long set without having to rely on shock tactics or the comedic value of comment on stereotypes, which are gimmicks so often used shamelessly in current comedy.

This man is definitely the one to watch – an outstanding talent in a very crowded industry.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD

Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
