ROB DELANEY ANNOUNCES THE MEAT TOUR

"I am going to tour very hard all over America and I won't stop until I'm done/hungry. Got it?" Rob Delaney

Delaney is a writer/stand up originally from Boston, graduating from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. Much of Delaney's success can be attributed to his massive following on Twitter of over 1,000,000 followers.

In 2013, his first novel and bestselling memoir Rob Delaney : Mother. Wife. Sister. Human. Warrior. Falcon. Yardstick. Turban. Cabbage. was released by Spiegel & Grau in the U.S. and by Little Brown in the UK.

In 2012, he was named one of Variety's "Top 10 Comics to Watch" and won the award for "Funniest Person on Twitter" at the Comedy Central Comedy Awards, beating out such luminaries as Steve Martin and Stephen Colbert . He has also been listed as one of "The Funniest People on Twitter" on such sites as Rolling Stone, Huffington Post, Vice, Paste, Comedy Central and Funny or Die.

Delaney's reach spreads beyond the U.S. market; in the UK, he sold out the Soho Theatre in seven minutes via one tweet, making him the fastest selling U.S. performer in the venue's history. His first TV series Catastrophe, which he co-wrote and co-stars in with Sharon Hogan , will premiere on Channel 4 (UK) in January 2015. His television credits include Comedy Central's Key & Peele, E!'s Chelsea Lately, Burning Love and TBS' Cougar Town.

His debut one-hour special, Rob Delaney Live at the Bowery Ballroom, is available on Netflix and from Comedy Central Records.

Delaney also sings the national anthem for the Boston Red Sox and the Los Angeles Dodgers. He currently resides in London and regularly performs stand up across the world. 

Huffington Post: "Rob certainly meets all the criteria required for the clutches of stardom to grab hold of him and whisk him away." 4 and a half stars

The Guardian: "Delaney is one of the sensations of the US scene."

UK Arts Agenda: "An excellent US comic, who pedals wry, searing anecdotes on modern life. A rare, and fleeting, delight."
