Great evening's entertainment of music, laughter and cracking lines.

Celia Delaney reflects on the desperation of being a 40-something singleton... In a performance filled with dark comedy and vocalised in sultry and flirtatious jazz styles, her biggest achievement was her suggestively predatory and anger-fuelledinterpretation of Adele lyrics to tell the story of internet dating, which propelled her concept to astounding heights.Distinctive, dark & hilarious.
The upwards trajectory was maintained by Confidential’s final act and nominee for Best Newcomer at London Cabaret Awards, Celia Delaney. Comedy rewrites of songs from Les Miserables and the like were made her own with an ability and originality that saw me out with a smile.

Lyrically, she’s razor sharp, with a beautiful eye for evocative imagery can clever rhymes, coupled with a whip crack tongue that nimbly dances over syllables and glottal stops.A consistently funny act.
London City Nights
Your voice is like sweet honey being poured gently into my ears!

A critic reviewed one of Celia’s early performances as “distressingly sexual”. She’s been trying to live up to it ever since!
