Ohio born Gary Owen's big break came in 1997 on
BET's stand-up showcase 'Comic View'
after being named “Funniest Serviceman In America”. Owen’s followed this debut with featured roles
in the films Daddy Day Care, Little Man, and
College. Most recently, he stars in
Ride Along with Kevin Hart.

In July 1997, he auditioned for BET's
Comic View. Two appearances on the
multicultural comedy showcase won him
his own one-hour Grandstand show. At the
end of the season, he was selected from
the year’s four "Grandstanders" to be the
host. Owen was the only white man
to have ever hosted Comic View.

In April, 2011 Ebony dubbed Owen
"Black America's Favorite White Comic".
