Professional Career

Davidson’s success was quickly followed by many more appearances on television, including What’s on Next, and several series of his own television show, The Jim Davidson Show (1979—1982), which ran for five complete series and won Davidson the TV Times award as “Funniest Man on Television”.

Davidson appeared on an edition of the BBC1 series Seaside Special, shown on 20 August 1977, hosted by Tony Blackburn and David Hamilton. His appearance garnered negative reviews in The Stage, with the show’s reviewer, Martyn Wade, commenting that: “…comedian Jim Davidson had already won first prize for lack of taste with crude racist jokes tracing the adventures of a black man whose nickname was Chalky and whose other names included Toilet-Roll. ‘Day-light come and I gotta sign on’ is a representative line from Mr Davidson’s act.”

He starred in TV sitcoms Up the Elephant and Round the Castle (1983–1985) and Home James! (1987–1990). His one-man show for Thames Television, Stand Up Jim Davidson (1990),was recorded at London’s Royalty Theatre.Davidson’s touring material developed from his original London comedy circuit show, aimed for pub and club audiences, a demographic considerably different to that of his television work; his touring material contains much stronger language, which Davidson promotes as ‘adult entertainment’.

Davidson later developed his touring material into his adult pantomime work, including productions with titles such as Boobs in the Wood, a spoof of Robin Hood, and SINderella.Davidson has several business interests.

He set up a company which bought or leased several seaside theatres or piers, including the Winter Gardens building in Great Yarmouth, which was converted into a nightclub. He lost £700,000 on a pantomime production of Dick Whittington and after a meeting with the Inland Revenue in 2003, he sold the company.
