Gary Skyner


Gary Skyner is a British comedian known both for his razor sharp stand-up comedy and his physical disability: Gary was the second person in the UK born disabled following the use of the drug Thalidomide during his mother’s pregnancy.

Skyner has appeared as a comedian at some of Britain’s biggest and most prestigious venues, including Grosvenor House in London and the Central Pier in Blackpool. As a comedian Skyner draws both on his experience as a disabled entertainer; his cutting remarks floor any member of the audience foolish enough to interrupt him and his lightning fast humour dispels any preconceived ideas his audience may have about disabled entertainers in any area.

Alongside his work as a comedian Gary Skyner also provides services as a compere, where he also utilises his stand-up comedy skills; as a humorous after dinner speaker Gary has his audience howling with laughter, tears streaming down their faces and their minds seriously blown.

I would not hesitate in recommending you as an ideal entertainer for a sportsman’s evening” Bernard, Manchester City Football Club

“I felt compelled to write to you to pass on our huge appreciation to you for travelling up to Greenock to speak at our Annual Sportsman’s Dinner. We had heard many good things about your act, but quite frankly they did not do you justice! I have personally taken many phone calls this week from people that attended the dinner who were bowled over by your performance as well as being humbled by your guts and determination” Crawford, Greenock Morton FC
