VIDEO: First Look - Showtime Presents GARY OWEN: I GOT MY ASSOCIATES

The outrageously funny Gary Owen is back with his third Showtime comedy special, GARY OWEN: I GOT MY ASSOCIATES, premieringFriday, September 8 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. In this hour-long special, Owen's stories are as unbelievable as they are true, running the gamut from celebrity weddings and bumping into LeBron James in the bathroom to the dichotomy of his hillbilly family and being married to the daughter of a founding member of the Black Panthers. Filmed at the Stardome in Hoover, Alabama, Owen also includes his thoughts on being the father of teenagers and serving in the military, as well as what he thinks of gamblers, prisons and even hand washing. No one sees the world quite like he does in this hilarious new special. Check out a sneak peek below!

Owen has been entertaining audiences for more than a decade with his side-splitting comedy, performing to sold-out crowds in all the major comedy clubs and theatres across the country. Owen has had massive success as a comic actor on the big screen, starring in the popular franchise Think Like a Man and its sequel Think Like a Man Too, as well as Ride Along with Ice Cube and Kevin Hart, Little Man opposite The Wayans Brothers, Daddy Day Careopposite Eddie Murphy and Meet The Blacks opposite Mike Epps and Mike Tyson. In 2016, Owen starred in the docuseries The Gary Owen Show, which chronicled his dynamic and interracial family life with his wife and children in small-town Ohio. Other small-screen credits include co-hosting the sketch series Upload with Shaquille O'Neal, a recurring role in the comedy series Tyler Perry's House of Payne, hosting the comedy special Shaquille O'Neal Presents: All Star Comedy Jam - Live from Orlando, Mike Epps Presents: Live from Club Nokia, Martin Lawrence Presents: 1st Amendment and two appearances on the multicultural comedy showcase BET's ComicView.
