Alan Davies is a permanent panelist on BBC America's comedy quiz show "QI."

Born in Essex, England, Alan Davies had a well established career in stand-up comedy before making the crossover to television. He secured his first stand-up job five months after leaving college and subsequently made many stand-up appearances on television, but mainstream success took several years to achieve.

Davies won the Time Out Award for Best Comic in 1991, and the work offers began to increase slowly, but surely. In 1995, he appeared on the spoof travel show, "One for the Road." He got his own radio show, "The Alan Davies Show," in 1998.

Davies used his new-found success to launch his acting career, appearing in "Jonathan Creek" in 1997 and "A Many Splintered Thing" in 1998. His performance was well received and signified a change in the pace of his career trajectory. "Jonathan Creek" remains a firm ratings success. Four series of the show — now co-starring Julia Sawalha — have been made so far.

Maintaining his links with comedy, Davies presented a documentary series on stand-up comedians in 2000. He also took a cameo role in "Dog Eat Dog" — a British film released in 2001.

More recently, Davies starred in BBC's comedy "Whites," ITV's crime drama "The Brief" and drama "Bob & Rose." He has also appeared in episodes of "Little Crackers," "Inspector Lewis," "Hotel Babylon" and "Agatha Christie's Marple." He also hosted "The Dog Rescuers with Alan Davies."
