Gary Delaney

DOUBLE SONY AWARD WINNER AND WRITER FOR 8 OUT OF 10 CATS & A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN BEFORE STEPPING INTO THE SPOTLIGHT ON MOCK THE WEEK

One of the most popular TV, radio and corporate comedians available in the UK today, Gary Delaney has enjoyed great success in all areas of comedy. The tongue in cheek entertainer is considered ‘one of Britain’s grandmasters of the one-liner’ by Chortle. A regular on Mock the Week, Gary has also written for Live at the Apollo, A League of Their Own, Stand Up for the Week and more. He has also featured regularly on the crew for 8 Out of 10 Cats, The Sarah Millican Television Programme and Ask Rhod Gilbert. He has written for the likes of Jason Manford and Mickey Flanagan.

A Sony Award winner and Chortle award nominee, Gary has performed at the UK’s most prestigious venues including the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where he had two jokes inside the Dave Award‘s top 10 list, Funniest Joke of the Fringe. A masterful comedian on both stage and screen, Gary has earned a status as one of the most quoted comics around. This saw many of his jokes uploaded to Sickipedia without crediting him, this led to the website crediting authors for their jokes.

Having showcased his unique comic style at the Place Theatre, the Hot Water Comedy Club, the Comedy Store, as well as on television, Gary has been widely lauded as one of the best executors of the one-liner in comedy. He famously delivered a set at Live at the Apollo featuring 15 one-liners in 3 minutes, the subsequent YouTube video has been viewed over a quarter of a million times.

Some of his jokes from that footage include:

“I think it’s sad the word legend has been devalued from pulling a sword from a stone to unexpectedly returning from a store with crisps.”
“I hired a landscape gardener, but he said he couldn’t help as my garden was portrait.”
“I went on a barging holiday. I haven’t got a boat, I just kept pushing people into canals.”

A fantastic writer and British comedian capable of leaving audiences in stitches with his hilarious sets, Gary Delaney is a must-have feature at corporate events.
