Greg Davies records Netflix special
James R | On 19, Dec 2017
Greg Davies is the latest British comedian to record a stand-up special for Netflix.
The streaming service has increasingly stepped up its stand-up game in recent years, signing a wealth of big US names to step behind the mic and stream their jokes for subscribers. But a growing list of British talent is also following suit, from Jimmy Carr and Katherine Ryan to Frankie Boyle and Bridget Christie. Today, Russell Howard released his own stand-up special too, hot on the heels of Judd Apatow and Jack Whitehall.
Now, Chortle reports that Davies is set to be among them. The comedian, who can currently be seen in Taskmaster: Champion of Champions, a two-part Christmas special for Dave’s flagship original comedy (pictured above), has recorded his new tour for Netflix. Titled You Magnificent, it was filmed at the Hammersmith Apollo in November, the same venue used by such comics as Jimmy Carr and Katherine Ryan.
The special is produced by Avalon Entertainment and will sit alongside a number of other Davies titles on Netflix, such as BBC sitcom Cuckoo and Channel 4’s The Inbetweeners.
