Gary Delaney

'The undisputed master of the one-liner genre' – The Guardian

Perceptively described by bbc.co.uk as 'the comedian Jimmy Carr wants to be' and by Loaded magazine as 'Britain's answer to Steven Wright', Gary is a majestic one-liner based wit whose inordinately tightly written, wonderfully original material makes him one of the most quoted gagsters on the entire planet. Featured on 'Mock The Week', Dave's 'One Night Stand', 'The Stand Up Show', Comedy Central's 'Comedy Blue' and radio 5's '7 Day Sunday' he received a slew of 4 and 5 star reviews for his debut Edinburgh festival show 'Purist'. All this and he's won 2 Sony Awards for his writing work for Kerrang Radio. Respected by peers and audiences alike his brilliant and often deliciously twisted lines win over any crowd and leave them struggling to remember all the ones they want to tell later. Plus he can disarm a heckler at twenty paces. He will previewing material from his forthcoming Edinburgh Festival show 'Gary Delaney vs The Tyranny Of Narrative'.
