Fans can see Owen in his most recent Showtime comedy special, “I Got My Associates.” Gary starred last year in his docu-series “The Gary Owen Show” on BET. The series chronicled his dynamic and interracial family life with his wife and children in small-town Ohio. It was the first time that a Caucasian actor starred in his own series on the network.
Gary has had great success on the big screen as well with film credits such as “Meet The Blacks,” “Think Like a Man” and “Think Like a Man Too.” He also starred alongside Ice Cube and Kevin Hart in the box office hit, “Ride Along.”
Gary grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio and has always loved comedy. After serving in the U.S. Navy, Gary returned to his first love, comedy. After two appearances on “BET’s ComicView,” he won his own one-hour “grandstand” show. At of that season, BET selected him to be the host. In addition to doing stand up and acting, Gary works closely with the nonprofit “Facing Addiction.” This organization is dedicated to finding solutions to the addiction problem facing our country. It’s an organization close to his heart, having lost his own brother to heroin addiction, he regularly speaks and performs to raise awareness and support for the organization.
