Gary Owen

Gary Owen, one of America’s most beloved comedians, has been entertaining American audiences decades with his side-splitting comedy performing to sold-out audiences in clubs and theatres across the country.
Most recently, Gary starred in the star-studded feature film BACK ON THE STRIP with Tiffany Haddish, Wesley Snipes, J.B. Smoove among others, DOTTY AND SOUL, MEET THE BLACKS and it’s sequel HOUSE NEXT DOOR.
He is one of the stars of the box-office record-breaking Screen Gems’ franchise THINK LIKE A MAN (2012) and its sequel 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. Other film credits include RIDE ALONG with Ice Cube and Kevin Hart, 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 had his own series on BET “The Gary Owen Show” and 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 5thseason of the TBS comedy series “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne.”
 In addition to his memorable series roles, Owen writes, produces, and performs his groundbreaking standup comedy specials: BLACK FAMOUS, #DOIN’ WHAT I DO, I GOT MY ASSOCIATES, I AGREE WITH MYSELF, TRUE STORY, URBAN LEGEND, and BREAKIN’ OUT THE PARK.   Upcoming, Gary has recorded two brand new one-hour comedy specials on back to back nights.
