Alan Davies on QI

Has anyone ever noticed just how much joke stealing Alan Davies does on QI? He's very likeable, but the more I watch it the more I notice this. So many times you see people setting up a joke only for him to come in and "steal" it. Is this bad comedian etiquette?

Actually, just add to that interrupting and talking over others! He's actually quite rude!

I noticed this. He also has a habit of miming the actions to a joke that was just made, which stops anyone else from being able to do anything until he's finished.

I was actually just watching an episode there and I noticed him doing it to Jeremy Clarkson.

It is kinda rude alright.

Thats literally what prompted me to post this. Clarkson set up a joke and Davies comes in and delivers the punchline. You could actually see that Clarkson was annoyed by it!
