Best In Live Stand-up Comedy: Gary Delaney, Daniel Sloss, Junior Simpson, Clint Edwards
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Gary Delaney 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. 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.
Gary is a regular guest on Mock The Week and has also appeared on Dave's 'One Night Stand', Comedy Central's 'Comedy Blue' and on Channel 4's 'Robert's Web' as well as Radio 4's 'Loose Ends' and Radio 2's 'Russell Kane's Whistle-Stop Tour'. His debut show 'Purist' was a big hit at the Edinburgh Festival in 2010, selling out every night and receiving many four and five star reviews.
'Gary Delaney has more quality jokes in this hour than many comics have in their entire careers… Quite brilliant' (The Scotsman).
'I laughed and I laughed and I laughed! A master craftsman' (The Times)
'Taut, brilliant one-liners. Delaney was worth the price of admission alone' (Chortle)
'... Razor sharp one-liners' (The Daily Telegraph)
Gary Delaney was placed in Ents24's top 5 hardest-working comedians 2017 and 2016.

Following the success of his 2009 Edinburgh show, Teenage Kicks, Daniel made his national television stand-up debut on Ch4's Paul O'Grady Show in September 2009, which was followed by his solo London debut at the prestigious Soho Theatre where he became the youngest ever stand-up to perform solo at the theatre and also in the West End.
He started doing stand-up aged 16 as well as starring in his own BBC show 'The Adventures of Daniel' and selling out three Fringe seasons in 2008-2010 - all before he started to shave. He has performed in Europe, Australia and South East Asia and is the winner of 2011's Scottish Variety Award.
'Nothing short of hysterical. A stunning show of observational humour. We will be hearing a lot more from this boy in the future' (Sunday Express)
'Charming, self-deprecating and genuinely funny' (Time Out)
'For those who still view him as a precocious comedy boychild, Daniel Sloss has suddenly become a strong man of stand-up… Has them rolling in the aisles' (The Scotsman)
'A star in the making... Unstoppable!' (The Daily Telegraph).
Daniel Sloss tour dates
Luton's lapsed choir boy, and one of the funniest people in British comedy, dubbed the new Lenny Henry, he has a string of TV credits including Never Mind The Buzzcocks and In The Dark With Junior Simpson. A TV and film favourite...remember the wedding DJ in Love Actually?
A true observational comic Simpson finds his humour in the everyday and humdrum with anecdotes of his world travels as a comedian adding a personal originality to his set.
'A favourite on the stand-up circuit, TV and radio' (BBC)
'Watch that man!' (The Guardian).
Junior Simpson tour dates
Part-time librarian and stand-up comedian with a conversational style mixed with audience interaction.
'All pizzazz and charm, his conversational routine set the tone for a night characterised by a symbiotic comedy partnership between performer and crowd' (Wales Online).
