After his meteoric rise through the ranks, Scottish Comedy Award winner and viral sensation Gary Meikle returns to Mareel after a hugely successful and popular visit in Summer 2022.
“Most blurbs are written in the 3rd person so they’ll be like ‘Gary is this, Gary is that, you can expect this from Gary’ - well, I’m writing this myself so, this will be MY 3rd show, or 2.5 as I’m calling it.
I’ve had several top professionals and industry people tell me over the years that I shouldn’t swear as much on stage, that I shouldn’t be as crude or as edgy as I am but guess what, they likely don’t know that as a kid growing up in the care system I was told that I’d be either dead or in jail by the time I was 30 so I tend not to listen to others and do things my way, its gotten me this far after all. I’m going to remain to be playfully dark and, as always, do what I do best which is to be relatable, honest and give you an insight to what its like to be me, a young single grandad who’s passionate about making his audience laugh and then be available for hugs at the end if anyone needs or wants one. See you all soon enough!”
