USA’s NUMBER ONE TWITTER COMEDIAN ROB DELANEY SELLS OUT UK LONDON RUN IN ONE HOUR FROM A SINGLE TWEET

ROB DELANEY, who became famous in the USA through the power of Twitter, has sold out his UK debut show at Soho Theatre, making him the fastest selling US performer in the venue’s history. Having built up nearly half a million followers on Twitter, ROB won the 2012 award for “Funniest Person on Twitter” at the second annual Comedy Central Comedy Awards in the US, beating comedy stalwarts STEVE MARTIN and STEPHEN COLBERT. Subsequently, it took fewer than 140 characters and just one hour for his loyal legion of fans to snap up the 900 tickets made available for the six dates in October; tickets went on sale on 9th July but fans had access on 6th July using a code released via his Twitter.

ROB, originally from Boston, regularly performs stand-up at the top comedy venues in Los Angeles, New York and various comedy clubs across the US. He now lives in Los Angeles, where he’s a fixture at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre and the Hollywood Improv. His television credits in the UK include contributing writer on Channel 4’s The IT Crowd and MTV’s Ridiculousness and in the US, guest hosting for G4’s Attack of the Show, Comedy Central’s Key & Peele, Fuel TV’s The Daily Habit and the pilot movie Movie Nook for TBS. He has also been listed on “The Funniest People on Twitter” on such sites as the Huffington Post, Vice Magazine, Paste Magazine and Funny or Die. ROB also, incredibly, sings the national anthem for the Boston Red Sox and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
