In-demand gag merchant Gary Delaney will bring his critically acclaimed Purist show to The Witham on Saturday 25 April as part of Funny Way To Be Comedy Club's residency at the recently refurbished venue.
Delaney, a double Sony Award winner, thinks that most shows don’t contain enough jokes, and is single handedly trying to redress the balance with this laugh-a-minute show chock-full of one-liners.
As well as becoming an increasingly familiar face in front of the cameras he has written for 8 Out Of 10 Cats, A League Of Their Own, Live At The Apollo and The Royal Variety Performance.
Peter Dixon, of Funny Way To Be Comedy Club, said: "Gary headlined a show for us in 2012 and was a massive hit with the audience. Since then he’s made lots of TV appearances and been touring the UK with his own show. We were delighted when he asked for us to add in a date to the extension of his highly successful tour."
So what can we expect from Gary Delaney's show in Barnard Castle? He recently said, "About six jokes a minute. I try not to bore the audience with stories or my opinions. Why do comics keep spouting their opinions on politics? Who cares? Just get on with being funny please. A comic’s opinions on politics are every bit as important as a butcher’s views on astronomy. I just try to make the audience laugh as many times as I can in an hour and a bit."
Tickets for the Gary Delaney show are on sale now, priced £12.
