The Delightful Sausage

About The Delightful Sausage

The Delightful Sausage are an award-winning double act created by Yorkshire comedians, Amy Gledhill and Chris Cantrill. Since joining forces in 2017, they’ve been twice nominated for the prestigious ‘Best Show’ award at the Edinburgh Fringe.

Having quickly established themselves as a cult favourite, The Delightful Sausage have also gone on to win over critics with their joyously gag-packed yet tightly plotted shows. They’ve been featured in The Guardian’s ‘10 comedians to watch’ and their last Edinburgh run was one of the Festival’s ‘shows worth queuing up for’.

Since making their television debut on Harry Hill’s Clubnite (C4), Chris and Amy have gone on to make regular broadcast appearances. They’re series regulars on Late Night Mash (Dave) and have popped up in such hit shows as Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared (C4) and the BAFTA-winning Alma’s Not Normal (BBC 2). They’ve had their own web series for Dave and even a special on BBC Radio 2.

As a duo they’ve written for Dave, BBC Radio 2, CBeebies, CBBC and Channel 4. Chris and Amy have several broadcast projects in development.
