Gareth Joyner is a comedian, writer and very occasional actor who dropped out of University twice so that Myra DuBois’ career might flourish.
Nobody has used the word ‘martyr’, but there it is. For more on the work of Myra DuBois, head to her own website here.
Born and raised in Rotherham, South Yorkshire; Gareth has always been ferociously proud of his northern working class roots and feeds this heritage into his comedy creations, of whom ‘Myra DuBois’ is, unfortunately, the most well-known.
Myra aside, there’s also comedian “par excellent”, misogyny apologist and inevitable sex-symbol ‘Frank Lavender’, whom Gareth often describes as “the other side of the same coin” to Myra DuBois. Frank Lavender has perform his unique brand of “comedy” at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the Leicester Square Theatre, the Leicester Comedy Festival and the Hackney Empire to name but a few. To find out more about Frank Lavender why not visit his website here.
Aside from his work with Myra & Frank, Gareth has written columns for Attitude Magazine, Boyz Magazine, ThisIsCabaret.com and QX Magazine. He’s also been a prolific writer of adult pantomimes which have been performed at fringe theatre venues in London. Pantomime has always been a passionate first love of Gareth’s, and he’s thrilled to say that Myra DuBois has made quite an impact in family pantomimes in recent years.
Gareth currently lives in London with his whippet, Vera.
