An Interesting Evening with Steve Davis
A household name for over 30 years both on and off the green baize, six times champion of the snooker world, Steve Davis, finally retired from competitive play in April 2016.
“My father passed away just before the start of the world championships and I played in it, we’d been in it since the start so it seemed the right time to finish” said Davis.
An Interesting Evening with Steve Davis charts his career beginning with his emotional farewell at The Crucible. It then takes the audience back into the late 70’s when Steve met Barry Hearn and through his unstoppable dominance of the snooker world in the 80’s. This includes light-hearted reminiscing and some memorable clips of his TV appearances on shows such as Morecambe and Wise, Cannon and Ball, Tiswas and Swap Shop, to name but a few.
Emotional, funny and relaxed, ‘An Interesting Evening with Steve Davis’ gives you a rare insight into how one of this country’s sporting superstars has stood the test of time and is still a key member of the BBC’s snooker team.
