The Alan Davies Show was a short-lived radio program that aired from May - June 1998. The show revolved around Alan Davies playing himself as a struggling actor, and the relationship with his best friends Kate (Ronnie Ancona) and Murry (Alan Francis). The series also featured British actors Kevin Eldon, Dave Lamb, Caroline Loncq, Alistair McGowan, Debra Stephenson, and Kim Wall.

Only one series of 6 half-hour episodes was made, which aired on Wednesday evenings on BBC Radio 4. A year later the series was repeated at 11.00pm on Tuesday evenings, with a six month gap between episode 1 and 2. The series was recorded at Broadcasting House.

The theme tune was Crazy by Barenaked Ladies.

Four episodes were released on audio cassette by BBC Audiobooks Ltd in May 1999. The series is no longer on sale.
