Gary Little is one of the most consistent and funny acts in Scottish comedy. He is recognised as a master storyteller, and is a regular headliner at many of the top comedy clubs in the UK.
Gary Little began performing comedy in 2003, when he became a finalist in a competition run by The Stand comedy club and the Daily Record. He performed his first one-man show at the Glasgow Comedy Festival in 2005.
In 2007, he was briefly jailed for stealing books from the HarperColins warehouse near Glasgow, where he worked as a forklift truck driver, netting £100,000 from selling them cheap on eBay. His prison experiences formed the basis of his 2009 Edinburgh Fringe show He Was Only Jail Gay.
A regular at the Glasgow International Comedy Festival, his 2013 and 2014 shows were the fastest selling shows in the programme, requiring an unprecedented 4 additional nights added to the run, due to overwhelming demand. 2015 and 2016 seen Gary selling out again. 2014-2016 also seen Gary playing to sold out rooms with his solo shows at the Edinburgh Festival.
As well as his solo show in Edinburgh, Gary was also part of the 5 star (The Stage) play Jail Mates.
After a successful pilot episode in 2016, 2017 has begun with the 4 part comedy series Jail Mates being commissioned and broadcast by BBC Radio Scotland
2017 also see Gary take his show to Australia where he performed at The Perth Fringe. He returns in 2018 and also will be playing at the Adelaide Fringe Despite his imposing physical presence – a 6’ 2” skinhead – Gary has an incredibly personable, relatable style. Combine that with his unflinching honesty and openness – and just a hint of vulnerability – and audiences everywhere fall in love with his easy charm. He has that rare gift which to turn mundane, every-day experiences into pure comedy gold, which will have you simply crying with laughter.
