He has entertained soldiers across the world and yet, as a comic, he still takes no prisoners at home.”★★★★★

Absolutely a fantastic night! Tears was running down my face, this is the second time I’ve seen Jim’s show and would go back a third time! Absolutely amazing! ★★★★★

Laughed till I cried ★★★★★

Davidson does not receive the true credit he deserves… you get what you expect – there are no airs and graces. You receive the simple, filthy comedy which is expected from such a comedy legend. ★★★★★

A comic who has timing down to a fine art. An on-stage, international perfectionist. ★★★★★

Last week Jim Davidson came, he saw, and he conquered a sell-out audience. ★★★★★
