'For a collection of good old-fashioned gags, it's one of the best out there, a rich buffet of inventive wordplay that's best savoured a little at a time to fully appreciate the joy of these perfectly-constructed morsels. For original, hilarious gags you'll want to share, this is the real deal.' - Chortle

'A rollicking joyride. . . Pundamentalist has puns for the whole family: rude ones, daft ones, deft ones, stinkers and absolute belters.' - British Comedy Guide


Gary Delaney, one-liner extraordinaire, has appeared on shows like Mock the Week and written for the likes of Jimmy Carr, Jason Manford, and James Corden. Now, for the first time, comes the first collection of his finest jokes. Featuring the likes of:

Garden centres can't reopen fast enough for me, I've been living on borrowed thyme.

We can't even afford a garden, so when my girlfriend bought us a trampoline I hit the roof.

Sure everyone cares about straws killing dolphins now, but they've been breaking camels' backs for years.

Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration, which explains why Prince Andrew is so stupid.

Sad news: The British simile champion has died. We shall not see his like again.

My mom doesn't trust my dad's secretary. I asked her why, and she just said 'I've seen her type before'.

Today someone told me that I look good with a salt 'n' pepper beard, so I took that as a condiment.

My French pen friend just said 'Le Monde', which means the world to me.

Can anyone tell me what FOMO stands for? Everyone else seems to know.

Actors have got Equity, Magicians have got the Magic Circle, but it's a shame ventriloquists don't have anyone to speak for them.

Does anyone know if it's safe to dye your pubes? It's a bit of a grey area.


And make sure you look out for Gary's next book, about Stockholm Syndrome: it starts off badly but by the end you'll really enjoy it . . .

Double Sony Award Winner, regular on Mock The Week, star of Live at the Apollo, Gary Delaney is a stand-up comedian and comedy writer. He is the only comic ever to have got two gags in the same top 10 for Dave's TV Funniest Jokes from the Edinburgh Fringe. His last tour was extended four times and took in over 200 venues. PUNDAMENTALIST is his first book.
