Davidson returns with new play but past routine still haunts

Help

Jim Davidson, the man who went from shelf-stacker, window-cleaner and pub drummer to television host and fund-raiser for the Tory party, fell out of favour years ago.

It wasn't so much his face that didn't fit as his idea of what was funny.

Mr Davidson spoke to the BBC's Jeremy Paxman on Newsnight.
