Gary Delaney


‘There’s Something About Gary’… and that something is he likes to write and perform jokes. An awful lot of them. He thinks a good joke should be like a drunk Glaswegian, short and punchy. 

“I laughed, and I laughed and I laughed… master craftsman” – The Times

Gary’s last tour was extended four times and took in over 240 dates. His next tour will once again showcase exactly why he is seen as the premier gagsmith of his generation.

Through Twitter and TV he’s become one of the most quotable comedians in the country. He loves each and every gag and you can’t help but be carried away by his infectious charm. He’s like a cheeky schoolboy who can barely hide his glee with each and every punch line.

“Expect a cavalcade of brilliantly inventive puns” – The Guardian

He recently won Celebrity 15 to 1 and will soon be seen on Celebrity Mastermind and Celebrity University Challenge for team LSE, with his old university mate Martin Lewis (from MoneySavingExpert.com) who encouraged Gary to make his comedy bow. His other TV and radio credits include Robert’s Web (Channel 4), Loose Ends (BBC Radio 4) and Russell Kane’s Whistle-Stop Tour (BBC Radio 2).

“Wickedly funny” – The Sunday Times

A regular on Mock The Week, he has won two Sony Awards, as well as receiving a Chortle Award nomination. He’s also a regular writer for shows including Cats Does Countdown, A League Of Their Own, Live at the Apollo and The Royal Variety Performance, and his jokes have twice appeared in Dave’s Top 10 Funniest Jokes from the Edinburgh Fringe. 

“Gary Delaney has more quality jokes in one hour than many comics have in their entire careers… quite brilliant” – The Scotsman
