Pundamentalist by Gary Delaney

Gary Delaney is the King of Puns. The unique comic has hundreds of jokes up his sleeve, picking apart the very fibres of our lives with his sharp eye for puns. Gary truly is a laugh a second, your audience will fall head over heels for his traditional comedy style and quick wit, which keeps viewers on their toes. Many will recognise Gary from Mock the Week and Dave’s One Night Stand, two of the UK’s most popular comedy shows, a reflection of his prestigious talent. The double Sony Award winner and Chortle Award nominee also published a book, Pundamentalist, in 2020, which documented over 1,000 of his greatest jokes.

A comedic writer above the rest, Gary’s skills have been called upon by Kerrang!, a radio station which he regularly writes for. He later appeared at his debut Edinburgh Fringe show, performing a show titled Purist which was met with critical acclaim, and followed by a nationwide tour. His jokes have been showcased in the Dave Award’s Funniest Joke of the Fringe twice, making Gary the only comedian to achieve such an accolade.

When booked for virtual corporate events and comedy festivals, Gary is guaranteed to captivate viewers. He combines the joy of comedy with the comfort of an audience’s own home, to put his guests at complete ease. What makes Gary so special is his visible passion for performing, an infectious glee that he struggles to contain with every pun. Such delight invites audiences to revel in the silliness, leading to an unforgettable online event.
