Gary Owen Headlines the Pittsburgh Improv @ Pittsburgh Improv
Jan 24 @ 7:30 pm
Gary Owen Headlines the Pittsburgh Improv @ Pittsburgh Improv | Homestead | Pennsylvania | United States

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, Owen is one of America’s most beloved comedians and was proclaimed by Ebony magazine as Black America’s “Favorite White Comedian.”

Audiences can soon see Owen in his fourth Showtime comedy special, Gary Owen: Doinwhatido which will premiere on Saturday, September 7th. This follows his three previous Showtime specials titled I Got My Associates, which came out in Fall 2018, I Agree with Myself and True Story, both of which aired on Showtime in 2015.

Owen has had massive success as a comic actor on the big screen. Up next, he will appear in Universal 1440 Entertainment’s Sudden Death. In 2016, he starred opposite Mike Epps and Mike Tyson in the comedy Meet The Blacks and in 2014, he starred in the Universal comedy Ride Along with Ice Cube and Kevin Hart. He is also 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 addition 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 Little Man (2016) opposite The Wayans Brothers and Daddy Day Care (2003) opposite Eddie Murphy.

In 2016, Owen starred in the BET docuseries The Gary Owen Show, 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.

In addition to his breadth of comedic work in films, television, and standup, Owen works closely with the nonprofit Facing Addiction, an organization dedicated to finding solutions to the addiction crisis in America. Having lost his own brother to heroin addiction, Owen regularly speaks and performs to raise awareness and support for the organization’s mission. Visit: http://garyowen.com/.
