Rob Delaney, comedian, national treasure and co-creator and co-star of Catastrophe, is heading to Amazon Prime Video in January with his new stand-up special.
Recorded at the Hackney Empire in London, Jackie will unpack the horror and the joys of his life in the UK’s capital city, from swimming in tea, unearthing scammers, being a father and a husband, the monarchy, and the rise of the sexbots to the disappearance of his friend Jackie. Emmy Award-nominated and BAFTA Award winning, Rob is most widely known for the critically acclaimed Catastrophe, which broadcasts in 132 countries around the world. Rob was also a breakout star and fan-favourite as Peter in Deadpool 2, and will appear with Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman, and Margot Robbie in Bombshell, telling the story of disgraced Fox News CEO Roger Ailes, released in the UK this January.
As a stand-up comedian, Rob’s previous sell-out stand-up tour saw him perform two shows at London’s Royal Festival Hall, while his UK stand-up debut in London saw the entire Soho Theatre run sell out in seven minutes via a single tweet, making him the fastest selling US performer in the venue’s history. His novel and bestselling memoir, Rob Delaney: Mother Wife Sister Human Warrior Falcon Yardstick Turban Cabbage was released by Spiegel & Grau in the US, and by Little Brown in the UK.
Jackie joins a raft of comedy specials recently ordered by Amazon featuring UK-based talent such as Chris Ramsey, Ed Gamble, Flo & Joan, Jayde Adams and Paul Chowdhry. Delaney’s Jackie will premiere on 17th January 2020.
