Artists and Comedians
Jim Davidson is firmly established as one of Britain´s top stand-up comedians and he is well known to TV viewers as host of BBC TV game shows Generation Game and Big Break. He received an OBE for his services to charity and has three coveted Showbusiness Personality of The Year´ Awards - from the Variety Club of Great Britain; The Grand Order of Water Rats and Comic Heritage
Highlights of an outstanding career have included five visits to the Falkland Islands, and countless engagements throughout the world entertaining British service personnel. In 1999 he travelled to Macedonia to entertain the Forces and in the same year he founded and became leader of The British Forces Foundation charity which aims to promote the well-being and esprit de corps of service personnel. He continues entertaining the troops in the many hot spots around the world as the demand from the troops continues and, at the moment, this is at an unprecedented level.
Jim´s success has also embraced top-selling videos; DVDs; CDs and books and he was featured in the movie “A Zed And Two Noughts“. His album “Watching Over You“ was produced by Greg Lake and his best-selling autobiography titled “Close To The Edge“ was published by Ebury Press.
He recently worked with John Malkovich on the film Colour Me Kubrick, which made its international premiere at the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival, New York. Jim received highly critical acclaim for his role in the film.
He regularly tours the UK with his record-breaking adult stand-up shows and he recently completed a hugely successful debut tour in Australia.
Jim currently has a number of writing projects under way, including a cook book and a novel. He has just written his debut play, titled “Stand Up And Be Counted“, an unflinching, no-holds-barred comedy which follows the explosive chain of events that unfold when two opposite ends of the comedy spectrum collide in the dingy, cramped dressing room of a charity fundraising event.
In May 2012 Jim re-wrote his adult panto “Sinderella“ with a Scottish twist, and performed as ´Buttons´ at The Glasgow Pavilion, “Sinderella - The Scottish Romp.“
