Gary Owen


Owen got his start as a comedian performing for Black audiences around San Diego.

As a matter of fact, he was so confident that Black people loooved him, that he entered the “Funniest Black Comedian In San Diego Contest” and won.

Mistake number one.

You’re telling me that a White guy took a spot from a Black person for the “Funniest Black Comedian In San Diego Contest?” Then the producers of BET’s Comic View saw Gary’s routine and put him on the show?


Despite all this, Gary still carries on, believing that Black people looove him. He married a Black woman (Kenya Duke), he talks publicly about his “homeboy” Will Packer, and he continues to perform for many Black audiences.

The looove must be strong.
