A rather different dating reality show has premiered on Netflix, taking the blind date concept to a new level, narrated by Rob Delaney.
“Sexy Beasts” isn’t your average dating show, but a show that is more concerned with personality than looks, where the goal is for the matchmaking to happen based on character traits.
The contestants/daters are turned into various creatures, from animals to fiction personas, through the use of prosthetics and while the dates on their own are hilarious, the narration by an outstanding comedian will have you burst out laughing even more.
Who is Rob Delaney?
Rob Delaney is a 44-year-old comedian and the narrator of the bizarre dating show on Netflix, born on January 19th, 1977 in Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
Best known for being the lead star and co-writer of the sitcom “Catastrophe” on Channel 4, Delaney has also appeared in minor roles in action-comedy films like Deadpool 2 (2018), and the Fast & Furious spin-off Hobbs & Shaw (2019).
He has also been featured in Life After Beth (2014), The Hustle (2018), Rocketman (2018), Hobbs & Shaw (2019), Bombshell (2019), Tom & Jerry (2021) and is set to star in Mission: Impossible 7, Home Alone, The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight and The Bubble.
Raised in Massachusetts, Delaney attended New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts and graduated with a degree in musical theatre in 1999.
He actually got his first break on social media, using Twitter to share his joke. Now, Delaney has 1.5 million followers on Twitter and 256k followers on Instagram.
Very open about his experiences on social media, Delaney earlier this year revealed that he’s a recovering alcoholic, with a post celebrating 19 years of being sober.
What is the relationship status of the Sexy Beast’s narrator?
The narrator of the dating reality show is himself a happily married man. Bob Delaney is married to Leah Delaney, with whom he lives in London.
The couple has four sons but lost their latest two-year-old son in January 2018 to brain tumour.
Recently, Delaney shared a post remembering his late son writing: “Look at my beautiful little chunker asleep. He’s 15 months old here and has just started chemo. The things my wife and I had to learn to care for a one-year-old with a complex tracheotomy… But I wish to hell I was still doing it every day. I miss caring for him. Our son Henry.”
