Geordie funny man Gary Colman is neither a small black midget nor the world's worst 'Diff'rent Strokes' tribute act but a critically acclaimed, fresh new stand-up comedian. In 2009 Gary was finalist in three national new comedy awards (Hackney Empire New Act of the Year , TV Comedy Forum 'Future of TV Comedy', and Jongleurs New Act of the Year), won a best 'comedy actor' nominee ("my MacBeth ... hilarious") and became a performed playwright.
In 2012 his first Edinburgh Show 'Still Rarely Rong' , a cute and heart-warming show about the disembowelling horror of family life, gained him 4 and 5 star reviews (see below for full reviews). He is currently previewing his 2013 follow-up show 'GRIND', another joyous, uplifting show about the crushing banality of life detailing his former career as reluctant hedonist and professional snowboarder.
He is also a regular performer (as both Emcee and act) at the infamous Fortnight Club; performing new material alongside performers such as Allan Carr, Jack Whitehall and Hal Cruttenden,
"A seasoned gag-smith with a sharp eye for the absurdities of family life". Bruce Dessau- Evening Standard.
"Highly inventive and very funny" (Frank Skinner).
"Completely unpredictable, mad and vivacious, think of Ross Noble but with much less hair... This show will have you in hysterics" 5 stars- Three Weeks Magazine
"Laugh out loud... not much in this hour misses the mark"- Copstick, The Scotsman.
"Gary Colman has an apparently slower and more deliberate approach, but this Geordie comic has a complete command of every second of his performance. Every seemingly wide-eyed comment on his life and family has a wickedly funny bite: and he knows exactly how to make use of Geordie stereotypes to wrong foot an audience. Great stuff." 4 stars Venue Magazine -Bath Comedy Festival.
