He’ll guide us through eyebrow etiquette, logic and how it’s changed his life as he’ll now forevermore be known as the eyebrow guy.
Gary will lay before you his remarkable life story about how he’s survived a troubled childhood to defy the odds, raised a daughter without her mother and became a granddad all before he was 40!

As well as all this we’ll get an insight into the workings of his mind, his thoughts and his opinions, some of which he dared not verbalise…. until now! Gary is not one for mincing his words so expect the unexpected from this playfully dark effervescent rising star.
