Caimh & Gary

Caimh McDonnell

caimhCaimh is the comedy circuit’s favourite unpronounceable Irishman. Equally at home MCing or doing a set, he’s fallen into the habit of doing an Edinburgh show every year now too, given vent to his more storytelling instincts. He’s in comedy clubs slightly less these days as he is supporting Gary and Sarah Millican on their tours and the sandwiches are nicer there. He is heading back to Edinburgh this year with his show Gorilla in the Midst – the third part of his Gorillogy(don’t ask).

As well as the stand-up, he’s written for numerous TV things, including Mock the Week, Have I Got News for You, A league of Their Own and The Sarah Millican Television Programme. He’s also been BAFTA nominated for the kids cartoon series he created and wrote called Pet Squad, thus finally giving his mother something she is willing to tell the neighbours.

His debut novel is being published in September entitled A Man With One of Those Faces. It’s a crime thriller set in his home town of Dublin and he thinks it is definitely the best thing he has ever done. His wife agrees and she is never wrong.

He’s also fiercely proud to be the voice of London Irish RFC, a job he has held for over a decade now. It is his obsession with the Exiles that led to the creation of Panelbeaters, as Gary desperately wanted to find something else to talk about in the car.

Gary Delaney

gary3Gary Delaney is a razor sharp one-liner comedian, who is widely regarded as being the most quotable comic on the circuit. The sheer number of outstanding gags leaves the audience struggling to remember them all.

Gary is a regular guest on Mock The Week and 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. Gary’s Twitter feed was also nominated for a Chortle Award.

Gary’s debut show Purist was a hit at the Edinburgh Festival in 2010, selling out every night and receiving many four and five star reviews. In 2013 he returned to the Edinburgh Festival with his second show Gary Delaney 2: This Time It Isn’t Personal. He is currently touring his new show There’s Something About Gary all around the country and seeing  as new dates are constantly being added due to high demand he almost certainly still will be whenever you read this.

He is inexplicably not that keen on rugby.
