Show Description:

Gary Owen has been entertaining American audiences for more than a decade with his side-splitting comedy. Having performed to sold-out audiences in all the major comedy clubs and theatres across the country, Gary Owen is one of America’s most beloved comedians, having been proclaimed by Ebony magazine as Black America’s “Favorite White Comedian”.

Audiences can see Owen in his most recent comedy special, “I Got My Associates,” currently on Showtime.  Last year, Owen starred in his eponymous docuseries “The Gary Owen Show” on BET, which chronicled his dynamic and interracial family life with his wife and children in small-town Ohio.  The series marked the first time a Caucasian actor had starred in his own series on the network.

Owen has had massive success as a comic actor on the big screen.  Last year, he starred opposite Mike Epps and Mike Tyson in the comedy MEET THE BLACKS.

He is one of the stars of the popular Screen Gems’ franchise THINK LIKE A MAN (2012), having appeared in the first installment and its successful follow up THINK LIKE A MAN TOO (2014).  In additional to their commercial successes, both opening #1 at the box office, the films were warmly received by critics and fans alike.  In 2014, he starred in the Universal comedy RIDE ALONG with Ice Cube and Kevin Hart.  Other film credits include LITTLE MAN (2016) opposite The Wayans Brothers and DADDY DAY CARE (2003) opposite Eddie Murphy.  He is also widely known for his stealing role as “Bearcat” in the MGM film COLLEGE (2008).

On the small screen, Owen co-hosted TruTV’s sketch series “Upload with Shaquille O’Neal” (2013).  After meeting Tyler Perry on The Tom Joyner Morning Show, Owen was cast as the recurring role of Zach the barber in the 5th season of the TBS comedy series “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne.”

In addition to his memorable series roles, Owen has starred in multiple televised standup specials, including “I Agree with Myself” and his one-hour comedy special “True Story,” both of which aired on Showtime in 2015.  In 2014, he served as the host of the hugely popular comedy special “Shaquille O'Neal Presents: All Star Comedy Jam - Live from Orlando”.  Other standout comedy performances include “Mike Epps Presents: Live from Club Nokia” as well as “Breakin’ out the Park” and “Urban Legend,” the latter two which he also produced.  He also starred in “Martin Lawrence Presents: 1st Amendment,” which aired on Starz in 2005.
