British comedian Alan Davies to headline Dubai Opera comedy night in June

Alan Davies will be supported by Rhys James, Tom Lucy, and host Jarred Christmas

British comedian Alan Davies will headline a comedy night in Dubai Opera on Friday June 14.

Davies, who also stars in the BBC crime drama Jonathan Creek, will be joined on the bill by up-and-coming comedians featuring Rhys James and Tom Lucy, along with host for the evening Jarred Christmas.

Rhys James, still in his early 20s, he has already appeared on a number of TV programmes including Mock The Week on BBC2, Sweat The Small Stuff on BBC3 and Seann Walsh's Late Night Comedy Spectacular on BBC3.

At just twenty-two years old, Tom Lucy is one of the youngest professional comedians on the circuit, performing regularly for the UK’s top clubs including The Glee Clubs, The Stand, Komedia, and The Comedy Store.

Acclaimed comedian and host, Jarred Christmas, has a unique style that deftly mixes gags with storytelling. He has a dynamic onstage persona and the ability to improvise and roll with anything that’s thrown his way, making his comedy sizzle with originality. He has also appeared on radio, film, television and stage.

Commenting on the new show, Dubai Opera’s chief executive, Jasper Hope, said: "Alan Davies is not just quite interesting on TV, he is a comedy great as a live entertainer and I can’t wait to hear his brilliant wit as he makes light of life in the intimate setting of Dubai Opera.”

Tickets available at www.dubaiopera.com starting from AED150 with a special early-bird discount of 20% on VIP and Platinum seating categories until April 25.
