Freddie Davies (born 21 July 1937) is a British comedian and actor.
Davies was born on in Brixton, London. He was brought up in Salford, Manchester. He became a stand-up comedian, after beginning his career as a holiday camp entertainer. He started on the cabaret circuit in 1964, when he turned professional, and he appeared on Sunday Night At The Palladium and Opportunity Knocks. Freddie also performed his act on ocean cruises with fellow comedian and friend Jim Bowen.
His act featured jokes about budgies, and he eventually picked up the nickname "Parrot Face", partly due to the faces he pulled on stage. He became known as "Freddie "Parrot Face" Davies", wore a bowler hat and became very popular.
From 1968 to 1971, the long-running British comic Buster featured a comic strip Freddie "Parrot-Face" Davies, based upon the adventures of Freddie and his "boodgies". In 1974 he had a BBC children's television series, "The Small World of Samuel Tweet". Mr. Tweet worked in a pet shop in Chumpton Green, appearing with many animals during the series. He also appeared in a commercial for Trill budgie seed, with the slogan, "Trill makes budgies bounce with health".
Freddie's other television appearances include Heartbeat, Casualty, Last of the Summer Wine and My Family. In 2004 he appeared in the film Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
