Gary is a stand-up comedian who has been on the comedy circuit since 2014, and more recently has become known internationally for his viral social media video rants including “Eyebrows”, and “Hair Extensions” which have had over 150 million views and counting. Originally from Glasgow, Scotland, where he still resides, Meikle has built a global audience (35% in the US) over the last few years, and therefore has taken his show “The iBrow Guy” around the world including the UK, US, Canada, Dubai & Europe. Over the years, Meikle has continued to draw material from his real-life stories, focusing heavily on his daughter Ainsley and granddaughter Gracie, from his perspective as a live-in single dad and granddad. He therefore captivates his audiences with his real-life, anecdotal, relatable, observational comedy. In 2019, Gary took his audience back to the children’s home he lived in as a teenager with the hopes to empower Care Experienced people that were watching.
