    9. Shawn Bailer

      Gary please upload your skits about barney an Arnold Schwarzenegger an snoop dog. It was the first skit I ever seen back in the day. Do it for a Covington dude.

      you got him good, very smart!..but should have told EVERYONE how he ripped you off anyway - to warn them..because you KNOW he did it to other people [who have their own stories about that yahoo] and what if he has challenges later? maybe hits hard times in the future? or gets angry at someone?..would he not rip others off in some way again?..and maybe he's still doing other dirty things he thinks he can still get away with anything [like that other comedian, Russell Peters, who directly ripped off some of Gina Yashere's jokes - before she was better known..but AFTER he was already wealthy! [I immediately lost interest in his work after I found that out - and he used to be one of my favorites..but just couldn't see him the same way.] but this guy who ripped you off..would you trust him to do your kids and wife right in business today?? IF an opportunity happened? if so, yikes!! bad decision..he's a criminal who obviously had no fear of getting a bad rep..and later ONLY admitted it to that guy and paid you back because he got CAUGHT and is now trying to save face...because he has MORE to lose, publicly and financially..NOT because he is suddenly a *good person* "in a different place." and this is also for ANYONE who chooses to keep reading: you can forgive him if you want but forgiveness can be overrated...also it's a good idea to know EXACTLY what 'forgiveness' means to YOU [not necessarily what it means to others and not just what the dictionary says]..because it turns out that when polled, most adults do NOT even have clarity [even many religious people] about what it *exactly* means *to them* when pressed for an, be clear, think for yourself, people..and if you DO forgive him/anyone re: your own meaning of the word, doesn't mean you have to fall for the person's 'new act,' no pun intended. personally, I NEVER want to pay to see someone perform who is like that - because to me that's a form of support and an's a character issue and that guy wasn't a child but an ADULT running a business and he didn't give an 'ish about how obvious his rip-off was, like he was throwing it in your face with those $1 bills and, 'so what?' was his attitude..that's just grotesque..and people like that can almost never be trusted later in Life, short of 'Jesus laying hands' because real change for the better, *during adulthood* is rare. and I know it's hard starting out - but better to work with a trusted manager as soon as the comedian/actor can afford it..AND only deal with business checks and/or direct deposit services under the promoter's/manager's/agent's name/business name...we have only a handful of friends in the industry but yes, every single one of them - early on - had to learn some very hard lessons..but to those working to get their come ups, they give out *great* advice today.👍

      Moral of the story is that you never know who you might see again, or need in the future.

      You got ripped off from a USO gig? That should not have happened. The USO pays the promoter on the spot. You should have called USO.

    79. Ende

      What you should of done is signed a contract for the gig and sued him afterwards saying you got no money. He would of had to prove he gave you money and with it not being a check he would of been screwed. but who the heck wants to have to go through the leg work on that one.

    80. Jackie Schuler

      Fort Gordon in Augusta, Georgia.

    90. Tj Umar

      Love the transition, awesome come back. You can not do Gary Owen dirty like that. The dude works hard for his success, and I'm pretty upset not seeing his comedy stand up on netflix.

    91. Larry Turner

      Bruh the setup was perfect. Folks be playing the short game. He should have saw he was opening for you and reached out with an apology and the funds. Would have been hilarious if you pranked him back and his money was short after performing!

    92. glenn doleberry

      Damn! Why BRUCE BRUCE do you like that!?🤣🤣🤣

    93. Roberto Martinez

      Fort benning?

    96. Sarah Gilbert
