Comedian, actor and writer Gareth Berliner has firmly established himself as an accomplished comic performer. He has been performing stand-up in the UK and Internationally for over 5 years since blagging his first 5 minutes at Up The Creek in Greenwich.
Irresistibly amiable Gareth’s act touches on his odd life and perspective. Berliner almost died long before ever becoming a stand-up and this affords him the ability to tell some intricately woven anecdotes and sharply crafted gags with an edge.
In 2005, he used this edge when he performed his first Solo show GUTLESS, covering every subject from Superheroes to Suicide, at The Melbourne Comedy Festival before taking it to the Edinburgh festival and receiving 4 stars from The Metro. He then went on to perform the show at The Adalaide Comedy Festival as well as at a corporate level elsewhere in the UK.
Gutless, takes its audience from sympathy to tears and then on to loud laughter...harrowing, yet hilarious, show - The Telegraph
He also works with Abnormally Funny People in a show that has toured universities around the UK as well as having a sell-out run at The Soho Theatre in Londons West-End.
Also utilising his experiences he performs stand-up in an NHS funded show called Cracking Up.
Last year Berliner made his TV debut in Coronation Street playing Macca and has done 9 episodes after being bought in initially for 2.
