Gary Delaney

Fee Band

With all the delight of a cheeky schoolboy, the double Sony Award winner is becoming the most quotable one-liner merchant in comedy. He wrote for 8 Out Of 10 Cats and A League Of Their Own before stepping into the spotlight on Mock The Week and 5Live’s Seven Day Saturday


Gary is a quick, sharp, ‘one-liner’ comedian whose tightly written, original material makes him one of the most quoted comics on the circuit. Respected by peers and loved by audiences his brilliant, razor-sharp and occasionally dark lines win over any crowd and leave them struggling to remember all the ones they want to tell later.

Ranging from the self-deprecating (I bought a chocolate bar and inside the wrapper it said ‘you’re a loser’. I wouldn’t mind but there wasn’t a competition on. To make it worse it was a Boost) to the obtuse (I went on a positive thinking course. It was rubbish); the darkly comic (it’s thanks to the efforts of people like my granddad that we’re not all speaking German today. He single-handedly killed eleven language teachers) to the thoughtful (missing persons register or list of hide and seek champions?)

Gary’s well-timed delivery of well-crafted punchlines has been displayed on Mock the Week and Dave’s One Night Stand. He’s written material for A League of Their Own, Stand Up For The Week, Live at the Apollo, 10 O’Clock Live, and The Sarah Millican Television Programme. He’s a regular fixture at comedy clubs around the country and at the Edinburgh, Leicester and Brighton festivals.

Looking Ahead to International Women’s Day

Samira Ahmed, Eniola Aluko, and Alex Mahon

We were joined by four fantastic speakers to look ahead at International Women’s Day. With the theme of this year’s event being #InspireInclusion, we were lucky enough to hear from four women who have each blazed a trail in their respective fields: CEO of Channel 4, Alex Mahon; the former Australian Prime Minister and Chair of Kings’ Global Institute of Women’s Leadership, Julia Gillard; one of the leading voices in football, Eniola Aluko MBE; and broadcaster and journalist, Samira Ahmed.
