Owen's road manager was setting up a merch table in the back of the club’s cramped lobby where Owen would sell “Black Girls Rock! Mixing good cheer and a touch of self-deprecation, Owen told tales about his wife, who is black, his children, and that familiar comedic fallback, sex.One had him at basketball star Dwyane Wade’s wedding a few months earlier, and standing at the urinal next to Le Bron James, unable to resist sneaking a glimpse.By his own account, he made over a million dollars last year, which goes a long way in southern Ohio, where he lives.
Three days before the show, another grand jury elected not to charge a white NYPD patrolman in the choking death of Eric Garner.(9/09) Stage: Appeared (as "Albert Peterson") in the musical comedy, "Bye Bye, Birdie", at the Roundabout Theatre Company in New York City with Gina Gershon (as "Rosie Alvarez"); Bill Irwin (as "Mr. Mac Afee"); Nolan Gerard Funk (as "Conrad Birdie"). Owen wore a brand-new, $250 gray polo shirt, crisp jeans, and camouflage Del Toro high-tops, and he prowled around the stage as he worked.Servers bustled trays of chicken wings and Hennessy cocktails.

These jokes are not judgments, they’re winking affirmations. The day after the Ferguson grand jury news in November, Owen posted on Facebook and Instagram that the situation was “bringing out the worst side of” people and that he wasn’t sure Michael Brown was completely innocent.“I don’t know anyone who gets shot doesn’t have a gun then decides to come back towards someone who just shot them.” The post, and a follow-up, generated fierce pushback.“Yea he has a Black wife and stars in a lot of Black Films but at the end of the day, he wasn’t raised Black,” one commenter wrote. Black people are ur only fans ur about to lose them all.” And a third: “Stay in yo lane.”At 41, Owen is unquestionably successful.It seemed far too soon for a blond, blue-eyed comic from the Midwest to mock a cultural icon in front of 300 black people in the heart of the Chocolate City. You’ve got six months to live unless you want to fuck Bill Cosby.But it turned out to be a carefully calibrated head-fake: Owen’s bit wasn’t about race at all. Then you’re good.” He had made, essentially, a rape joke.But in person, Owen turns out to be surprisingly large — over 6 feet tall with a muscular build that he attends to in a mirrored gym in the basement of his home north of Cincinnati.

Compared with other comics, Owen looks like a linebacker, and so his handshake, limp as a wet towel, comes as a surprise.“If Gary goes to crossover, we will cross him out,” said Tom Joyner, host of a radio show that’s syndicated in nearly 100 markets, and on which Owen appears weekly.“That's just the way it is with black audiences.” Owen’s Instagram overflows with photos of him standing next to professional athletes, towering men wearing grins on their faces as they put their arms around the funny white guy they just saw perform.Instead, he riffed on the apparent agelessness of all the women coming forward to accuse Cosby. But in front of this crowd, at that moment, it somehow felt like safe ground, and the tension in the room boiled off in a burst of gleeful laughter. Owen holds the distinction of being the only white comic to host the influential BET comedy show Comic View and has appeared in shows and movies with Tyler Perry, Eddie Murphy, Jamie Foxx, and Kevin Hart.For the past several years, he has headlined Shaquille O’Neal’s All Star Comedy Jam, routinely sells out 2,000-seat venues, and is currently touring arenas with Mike Epps.
