All comedians are interesting characters. Gary Owen, especially. He’s a white comedian with the title, ‘Funniest Black Comedian’. He’s also the only white comedian to ever host Comic View on BET, and the only white on-air personality the network has ever had. Growing up in a trailer park in Ohio, Gary found his way out and into the navy where he began his comedy career. “I was always smiling,” he recalls, “I got yelled at for smiling all the time.” Either way, his laughs and smiles earned him ‘Funniest Serviceman in America’. More recently Owen headlined in Mike Epps Presents: Live from the Club Nokia which is currently airing on Showtime. He’s appeared in the films Little Man with the Wayans Brothers, Rebound with Martin Lawrence, and Daddy Day Care with Eddie Murphy. Owen also joined the cast of Tyler Perry’s widely successful, House of Payne, and he stars in tru TV’s funny video/sketch show series Upload which he co-hosts with Shaquille O’Neal. The show airs Thursday nights at 10:30PM. Gary is one of the stars of the hit film Think Like A Man and just finished filming the Universal comedy Ride Along with Kevin Hart and Ice Cube. Gary will soon begin shooting for the upcoming, Think Like a Man Too. Owen currently has two stand up DVDs: Breakin’ Out the Park and Urban Leegend, as well as a one-hour Netflix special, The True Story. Gary is performing at the Houston Improv tonight and all weekend long. You don’t wanna miss him!
