Mock The Week regular GARY DELANEY used to organise conferences. In this capacity he met Bill Clinton, Nelson Mandela, Gordon Brown, Maddy Albright, Kofi Annan and others. He can tell us on good authority that Gordon Brown’s lecterns are exactly 1.3 metres high. The late Robin Cook used to have his own special tiny lectern. In this time he had a beer with Mick Jagger, a Kit Kat with Edwina Currie and a wee with David Baddiel.
These days Gary is a razor sharp one-liner comedian, who is widely regarded as being the most quotable comic on the circuit. The high quantity of stand out gags leaves the audience struggling to remember them all. Gary is at home in venues from arts centres and theatres to rowdy pubs and clubs and has played corporate gigs including the Labour Party Conference.
Gary has written for Ivan Brackenbury’s Hospital Radio Roadshow (nominated for the Perrier Award in 2007 and 2008), 8 Out Of 10 Cats, The Friday Night Project and Radio 4’s The News Quiz.
