Scottish comedian Gary Meikle will be performing in Helensburgh and Glasgow as part of his recently announced 2020 tour.

Following his 2019 sell-out UK tour, the award-winning and viral sensation stand-up will be returning to the stage with his brand-new show “Surreal”, including a performance at the town’s Victoria Halls on Saturday, June 6.

The comedian will also perform in Glasgow Royal Concert Hall on Saturday, October 17.

“Surreal” is a 44-date UK and Ireland tour drawing for material from his real-life and his experiences as a live-in single dad and granddad.

After a social media video rant about his daughter’s obsession with her eyebrows went viral early last year, Gary rose to international fame taking his first comedy set iBrow across the globe.

Meikle talks about the importance his daughter, Ainsley and granddaughter, Gracie, play in his upcoming show.

He said: “They can expect a lot more honesty in terms of my opinions. I think I always talk about my girls and my family life.

“They influence it massively, you see the things I talk about on stage, they’re not made up, they’re all true stories.”

Gary’s career in comedy business was a complete accident.

He started by writing jokes in his emails to his colleagues when he was a debt collector.

“I did open spots at comedy clubs and then it grew from there. I never dreamt of being a comedian, it just happened.”

Gary has been named at the top of The List’s Comedy Hot 100 for 2019. A night of stand up with Meikle has been described as “like a night in the pub chatting with friends”.

Not one for mincing his words, the comedian has been described as “playfully dark.”

His cheeky chappie charisma and ability to get away with talking about anything never fails to get a crowd laughing.

He said: “It isn’t a show for snowflakes. I do swear, I do push the barriers a little bit.

“I think what my following love, is that they’ve seen me grow from the beginning, they feel like they’re on the journey with me.”

Tickets, on sale now, are available from the Victoria Halls on 01436 673275 or the Royal Concert Hall on 0141 353 8000.
