Gary Delaney: Purist
Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2010
Purist consists of an alarming amount of jokes. Don’t expect a narrative, theme or a voyage of self discovery but do expect jokes, and lots of them. Gary will also be talking about how in the internet age jokes that could once last a comic a lifetime can now travel the world in day.

Hah. That was us that walked out at 51 minutes. I enjoyed much of his material, but felt quite tired and depressed by jokes about gypsies and children with Down's syndrome. I appreciated the wit, but the content of the more offensive jokes was pointless. Yay! A rape joke! And word-play about niggers! And luckily we weren't left with anything to think about. The gag about Jim Davidson ended up seeming a little ironic. I'll stick with Herring and Legge thanks.

I haven't laughed so much in ages. I know that might sound a little unoriginal but its TRUE. I couldn't stop coughing afterwards because of the excessive laughter.

This show was very very funny. He split it into perfect chunks and mixed in enough bits and pieces to mean there was no 40 minute dip. Saving the most offensive stuff until last helped too even if it meant there was a 51st minute walkout. No a show you could take the vicar too but very very funny

Just did gags..... And remembered them! Priceless, Gary Delaney is one of the UK's hidden gems. A genius at large

An amazing joke writing talent.

I nearly excreted organs laughing at a preview of this show. Just superb gag-writing craftmanship from start to finish with a side order of wonderful bad taste.
