Media Release: Ctrl Alt Delamere at The National Museum for the Edinburgh Fringe


THE Gilded Balloon, Lisa Richards and Off The Kerb present Neil Delamere in Ctrl Alt Delamere at the National Museum of Scotland from Friday 5 (preview) to Friday 12 August as part of the 2016 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Neil Delamere, recognised as one of Ireland’s stand=out comedians and TV stars, promises a comedy hour brimming with hilarious tall tales from both TV filming and married life when he returns to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe after a two-year absence.

The quick-witted Dublin-based comic, famous for his banter with the audience and razor sharp observations full of style, smooth delivery and near-perfect timing, can’t wait to make the National Museum of Scotland his home in August.

“I’m looking forward to performing in a museum. The good news is the show finishes at ten and if I’ve learned anything from films, the museum will come alive shortly after that. I’ll have a pint with Teddy Roosevelt and Genghis Khan if it doesn’t go well.”

Having taken time out from the Fringe to film death-defying and scary and unpleasant stunts for a TV science panel show and history documentaries, Neil Delamere will be going behind the scenes with some rib-crackingly funny moments that never made it to air.

Expect tips on how to how to use a sword, survive a bobsled ride as well as how to stay conscious in an astronaut training centrifuge or pretend to enjoy weightlessness in a plane that is plummeting to earth.

Having taken the marriage plunge in 2014 Neil’s eventful honeymoon, climbing mountains in Peru, will also take centre stage in Edinburgh; hopefully, a process of catharsis for both Neil and his wife.

With stellar reviews, sell-out stand-up tours and platinum-selling DVDs to his name, award-winning comedian Neil Delamere is one of the top acts working in the Irish comedy scene today. His ten-part science series Eureka was recently broadcast on RTE 2 and he is also back in the hot seat with the 11th season of BBC’s The Blame Game, at the end of 2016.

“Delamere is a banter bomb, primed to make you explode with laughter… simply put, he is a master.”The Scotsman ★★★★★

“One mean, lean, comedy killing-machine.” The Herald ★★★★★
