Gary Owen has been entertaining America for over a decade with his side-splitting comedy.
Having performed in all of the major comedy rooms across America, including The Laugh
Factory Hollywood, The Comedy Store, all of the Improvs, numerous Funny Bones and
Punchlines, and Caroline’s in New York, Owen is one of America’s most loved comedians.
Owen has also been recognized around the country for his scene stealing role of “Bearcat” in
MGM’s film COLLEGE.
Owen can be seen as “Zach” the barber on Tyler Perry’s extremely successful HOUSE OF
PAYNE, which just got picked up for an additional 46 episodes. Perry met Owen on the Tom
Joyner Morning Show (on which Owen is a regular), immediately knew he wanted to work with
him, and wrote him into the show. Additionally, Owen has been seen in such films as LITTLE
MAN with the Wayans Brothers, REBOUND, and DADDY DAY CARE with Eddie Murphy.
Owen was always the class clown growing up in Cincinnati, Ohio. After high school, he got
serious and enlisted in the Navy. He was chosen for the prestigious Presidential Honor Guard.
However, spinning rifles and carrying flags for George Bush and Bill Clinton turned out to
be the wrong job for a funny guy. “I was always smiling,” he remembers, “I got yelled at for
smiling all the time.”
