Comedy giant, Gary Delaney is coming to the Thwaites Empire Theatre, the partner of Sarah Millican and funny man in his own right.
Delaney is a razor sharp one-liner comedian, who is widely regarded as being the most quotable comic on the circuit. He regularly plays all the big clubs including The Comedy Store, Highlight, Jongleurs, Komedia, Glee, Rawhide, The Frog and Bucket, Hyena, Baby Blue, The Stand, Comedy Café, Lee Hurst’s Backyard, Banana Cabaret and headlines at clubs throughout the UK as well as being a familiar face on television comedy programmes such as Mock the Week.
He has also appeared on Dave’s ‘One Night Stand’, Comedy Central’s ‘The Comedy Store’ and ‘Comedy Blue’, and on Channel 4’s ‘Robert’s Web’. He has also been on Radio 4’s ‘Loose Ends’, Radio 5’s ‘7 Day Saturday’ and Radio 2’s ‘Russell Kane’s Whistle-Stop Tour’.
Gary has written for many TV programmes including 8 Out of 10 Cats, Mock the Week, 10 O’Clock Live, A League of Their Own and Stand Up for the Week. Gary received two Sonys for his work for Kerrang! Radio.
The Thwaites Empire Theatre is fast becoming one of East Lancashire’s most popular comedy venues with a host of alternative and main stream names attracted to the Ewood arena, because of its intimate auditorium. Chairman Michael Berry said, ‘Since the theatre relaxed its rules on audience drinks being taken from the bar into the theatre the programming has been expanded to include a wide variety of entertainment genres which are enhanced by the accompaniment of a licenced bar facility.’
