Tom Davis

The Artist

Tom Davis is a writer, actor and stand-up comedian best known for his BAFTA and Royal Television Society award-winning comedy series  MURDER IN SUCCESSVILLE . The cult BBC3 series, which he co-wrote with James De Frond, was a mix of cop show meets reality TV, and Successville is a surreal place with a high celebrity homicide count. The Telegraph said MURDER IN SUCCESSVILLE is  “at the sharper end of comedy’s cutting edge”.

Davis and De Frond’s next collaboration, a brand new comedy drama for BBC One called  KING GARY , follows Gary King (Davis) and love-of-his life, Terri (Laura Checkley) as they bowl through family-life in the suburban ‘Butterchurn Crescent’. Other cast includes Simon Day (The Fast Show) as Big Gary; Neil Maskell as Winkle (Humans) and Romesh Ranganathan (The Misadventures Of Romesh Ranganathan) as Stuart. It will air on BBC in the New Year.

Other notable projects include  ACTION TEAM , a spoof spy action-thriller with a cast that included Vicky McClure, Derek Riddell, Stephen Graham and Jim Howick;  THE MORGANA   SHOW (C4) ,  BAD EDUCATION (BBC3/Netflix), DRUNK HISTORY (Comedy Central), COCKROACHES (ITV2), BIG SCHOOL (BBC1), PLEBS (ITV2), A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN: EUROPEAN ROAD TRIP (Sky One)  and  JUDGE ROMESH (Dave) .

In film, Tom has been seen in  FREE FIRE ,  PREVENGE  and  PADDINTON 2  as the memorable ‘T-Bone’.
Previously, Tom was chosen by an industry panel to be part of BAFTA’s ‘  Breakthrough Brits ’ in association with Burberry, which highlights and supports exciting and emerging talent in film, TV, production and gaming each year. 

The Painting

1. ‘Clown’ by Emeli Sandé – “It perfectly embodies the feeling of being a comedian hiding behind a smile, whilst the world around you can be shaking at it core.”

2. ‘Poker Face’ – “Always rock a little Gaga before any show. This song symbolises the inability to open up and talk about ones problems.”

3. ‘Big For Your Boots’ – “My go to song to light up any day. Will get you up and pumping but not too much you get carried away by your own ego, reach for the stars but don’t forget yourself.” Tom
