Comedian Gary Delaney, who is well known for his one-liners and past appearances on Live at the Apollo, will return to Leicester for a special show in conjunction with Highcross Shopping Centre at the end of the month.

Delaney, who has also appeared on Mock the Week and is married to another famous comedian in Sarah Millican, has been touring around the UK as part of his ‘Gagsters Paradise’ tour and will be performing a routine in the Directors Lounge of the Showcase Cinema De Lux on Sunday, February 23.

Highcross were giving those who wanted to attend the opportunity to win pairs of tickets for the show which includes drinks and canapes before Delaney graces the stage.

Leicester is of course well known this time of year for the Comedy Festival and this will bring the ever popular event even more to life in a familiar venue.

Jo Tallack, general manager at Highcross Leicester, spoke ahead of the event and is looking forward to hosting the well-known comedian as part of the Comedy Festival.

“Leicester Comedy Festival is one of the city’s most highly anticipated events and we’re delighted to be hosting Highcross’ first ever comedy show at the luxurious Director’s Lounge at the Showcase Cinema de Lux.

“The show is set to be an unmissable night of comedy and we’re excited to welcome stand-up star and Mock the Week funny man, Gary Delaney, as our headline act.”
