As seen on BBC iPlayer and heard on BBC Radio 4, stand-up Gary Tro is an exciting breakthrough act making waves on the UK and international comedy circuit with his joyously angry and hilariously anarchic style of comedy. Gary is an established stand-up on the UK comedy circuit, touring both in the UK and overseas. A versatile performer, he's a talented actor, presenter and his distinctive vocal range makes him a sought-after voice over artist. He’s also an improviser and performs as one half of nerd-culture double act The Just Us League. In 2017 Gary supported Tez Ilyas on national tour and took his own show ‘SupercalifragilisticexpiGaryTrocious’ to festivals all across the UK and at the Charleston Comedy Festival USA. In 2018, Gary is making his Australian touring debut with his new show ‘Gary Tro-ke Karaoke’.
