Gary Meikle - Surreal

Following a 2019 sell-out UK tour, award winning Scottish stand-up comedian and viral sensation, Gary Meikle, has announced he'll be returning to stages with a brand-new tour across the UK in 2020, called Surreal; a title that perfectly describes Meikle's last twelve months, having started the year performing in comedy clubs and ending it selling out theatres across the globe, after one of the stand-up's videos about his daughter's eyebrow's went viral worldwide. Meikle's UK tour will span the UK for 44 dates including a performance at London's Leicester Square Theatre on Saturday 19th September 2020, before he travels across the pond to perform in the US and Canada, with 2020 European dates lined up too.

Of what to expect from his new show Surreal, Gary said: "2019 has been such a surreal year for me since the videos took off, and I'm excited to get back to stand up with this new 2020 tour to tell audiences about how I've been dealing with all the madness - from women sending me countless pictures of their foreheads thinking I'm some sort of eyebrow connoisseur, to being stopped in the streets by people shouting 'Hey, you're that dick pic guy, right?'... which isn't something I want being broadcast in public to be honest!"

Not one for mincing his words, Gary has been described as 'playfully dark'. His cheeky chappy nature and ability to get away with talking about anything will have you laughing at things you probably shouldn't. As always, Gary will draw material from his own real-life experiences, including his unique family dynamic and his rapid rise to online fame. Quickly putting his audiences at ease, a night of stand up with Gary feels like a night in the pub chatting with friends.

Having performed to tens of thousands of people over the past year, Gary has found a new confidence and level of openness on stage, meaning he doesn't hold back on giving his opinions, no matter how warped! The new show will cover topics such as evolution, social media, how to deal with burglars, single mums, bee sex, small man syndrome and much more. Gary is a fast paced, punchy storyteller that finds the funny in anything.

Meikle has been on the comedy circuit as a stand-up since 2014, and more recently has rocketed to fame becoming known internationally for his viral social media video rants on subjects including eyebrows, hair extensions and dick pics, which have had over 150 million views and counting. This year, Meikle was named at the top of The List's 'Comedy Hot 100' for 2019.

Originally from Glasgow, Scotland, where he still resides, Meikle has built a global audience (35% in the US) over the last few years, and has therefore taken his show "The iBrow Guy" around the world including the US, Canada, Dubai and Europe. Most notably, he performed a sell-out show at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall with a capacity of 2000, with all proceeds raised going to the charity Ronald McDonald House.
