Rob Delaney's career received attention via his Twitter account. As of March 2014, Delaney had 1.02 million followers. In 2010, Paste magazine named him one of the ten funniest people on Twitter.
In December 2011, Comedy Central announced Delaney would shoot a pilot for a variety show, called "@RobDelaney". Delaney and Irish comedian, Sharon Horgan, are working on a comedy series for the British channel, Channel 4, as of May 2014.
Delaney is married and has two children.
In 2002, Delaney blacked out while driving and drove his car into a building owned by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. He broke his left wrist and right arm and cut both of his knees to the bone. This prompted Delaney to stop drinking.
He has battled severe depression on two occasions, which he has documented in a blog post.
