He might be better known to fans as the delightful TV snoop Jonathan Creek, but Alan Davies is going back to his stand-up roots when he returns to New Zealand next February.

It's been 15 years since the English funny man has performed here, but he has recently appeared on Kiwi screens in British quiz show QI, alongside Stephen Fry.

Davies will perform his hit stand-up show Life is Pain in seven shows around the country, starting at Auckland's Town Hall on February 3.

From the stage, the screen and as an author, Davies has done it all. He has won a number of comedy awards including an Edinburgh Festival Critics Award for Comedy and a nomination for the prestigious Perrier Award.

He took up the role as Jonathan Creek in 1996; the show ran for 14 years and was seen around the world.

In 2002 he took part in a comedy pilot hosted by Stephen Fry. QI has subsequently run every year since 2003.
