Gareth Mckean is an Australian stand-up comedian, born in Southwest England in 1971. He arrived in Queensland-Australia, aged 10 years of age and performed admirably as the class clown. Gareth took up Stand Up after he hired an Open Mic group to his Golf Country Club to perform. He asked if he could grab 5 mins to have a go. He stayed up there for 10 “crushed” and the rest is history.
He is arguably one of the most unapologetic comedians in Australia. Loud, energetic and an imaginative storyteller, Gareth entertains the crowd with real life events the way only “he saw them”. Father of millennial girl and boy twins, a middle manager for 25 years, and married for 30, all his tales strike a comical chord across all generations. Pulling zero punches he says it how it is and makes no apologies for it.
With Sold Out shows at the Perth Fringe 2021 and 2022, he was part of the Team America Tour peaking in the now legendary Trailer Trash show at Perth’s Regal Theatre and several other sell out comedy productions and tours across Australia.
Most recently, Gareth is one of Western Australia’s Flannel Panel trio. During Covid the lads covered nearly 15,000 kms of regional WA with over 30 shows performed. Gareth recently performed his own solo gigs at FRINGE 2023 with 5 sold out shows and rave reviews from punters. Proving you are never too old to follow your dreams, Gareth now has his sights on touring not only around Australia, but overseas gigs are on the horizon.
So make this a bucket list gig not to be missed.
