Gary Delaney: Gary in Punderland

PLEASE NOTE: This event will now be held at The Princess Pavilion while building work continues on The Poly's theatre. 

06/08/21: This event is sold out and tickets will not be available on the door. Sorry for any disappointment. 



Get ready to dive into a rabbit hole of the best jokes in the world - star of Live at the Apollo and sell-out sensation Gary Delaney is back! 

One of the most sought-after joke writers in the country and longstanding Mock the Week special guest, Gary has been through the laughing glass and he’s ready to bring you a brand new show with hit after hit of the kind of one-liners only a master could craft. If you’re hunting for snark, Gary’s got it covered!

★★★★ ‘A cavalcade of brilliantly inventive puns.’ The Guardian
★★★★ ‘More quality jokes in one hour than most comics have in their entire careers...Quite brilliant.’ The Scotsman
★★★★ ‘A master craftsman.’ The Times 
★★★★ ‘One of Britain's grandmasters of the one-liner.’ Chortle 
Age restriction: 16+

This event will be held indoors in the theatre of the Princess Pavilion. Here's how we will keep you safe: 

  • Ticket-free event: no need to collect tickets from The Poly; simply come to the Pavilion with your transaction number and name, and we will check you and your group in at the door. 
  • NHS Track and Trace: we recommend that on arrival you sign in to Track and Trace via the app or paper form. 
  • Capacity capped at 50%. 
  • Socially-distanced seating: please try to arrive with those you would like to sit with. We will seat one group at a time in your chosen area so the next group can be safely distanced from you. Floor and raked seating is available, first-come first-served choice of seats. 
  • Face coverings: please wear a face covering when moving around the venue, unless you are exempt. Coverings can be removed when seated / drinking. 
  • Ventilation: we will keep external doors ajar during the show (to allow air in while minimising noise disturbance), and fully open during the interval and prior to the show. 

We will run a pop-up bar selling bottles and cans. We are advised it may have to be cash only - please come prepared!
