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 returned to the Edinburgh Festival in August 2014 with his show "ChUNT* (*the verb to grumble)" which received great reviews.
Gary is also an actor and in October 2014 Gary starring at The Chelsea Theatre, London, in Trevor Griffith's brilliant play "Comedians".
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,
