Welcome to another edition of the world-famous and world-renowned Stephen Rowan Show. www.stephenrowanshow.com Today’s guest is the comedic, charitable, spiritual and all-round great guy Gary Meikle. He really is a superb person. In my opinion, he represents the best of us on and off the stage. During the show we talk about his family, selling out massive arenas, the importance of family. In addition to the usual stuff, we will be discussing blind dates, contouring, ghosting and being in touch with your female side. Gary is an award-winning comedian who has worked alongside the likes, Jason Manford.

From Glasgow, Scotland, Meikle captivates audiences with real-life, relatable comedy, and attracts the US audience with his accent. After discovering that 35% of his social media followers were from the US, Meikle decided a road trip to the US was much needed. Currently Meikle sells out shows in the UK, Dubai, Spain, and other European destinations, and the US tour will be no different. Fans from around the entire world continue to be captivated by Meikle both online and on the stage, and his viewership continues to grow. Most notably, Meikle booked the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall with a capacity of 2,500 for a charity show supporting the Ronald McDonald House. Over the years, Meikle has continued to grow his act on his rreal-life​stories, focusing heavily on his daughter Ainsley and granddaughter Gracie. Since Meikle is a live-in​ dad and granddad, his material pulled from his life is what sets him apart.

With a rough family life that finally came to a breaking point around age 10, Meikle returned to Glasgow with his mother and step-father. Through the years that followed, Meikle was kicked out of four schools, involved with gangs, and drinking heavily. After a falling out with his mom, Gary was sent to a children’s home where he stayed until he was 16. 16 and homeless, Gary resorted to hostels and friend’s couches. It wasn’t until a one night stand the year after that his life was completely changed for the good. The girl he had hooked up with at a party was pregnant, and she was keeping the baby. Gary’s daughter, Ainsley, was later born and become the full center of his attention. From Gary’s interview with The Guardian: “At that time, people who knew me used to say I’d either be dead or in prison by the time I reached 30,” he says. “And I think they’d have been right. Ainsley gave me a second chance, a reason to turn my life around.” Things didn’t work out with Meikle and Ainsley’s mom, who walked out of her daughters life when she was just 2 years old, leaving Meikle and Ainsley’s grandparents to raise her, once Ainsley turned 14 she decided she wanted to be with with her dad full time and she’s been with him ever since. Fast forward to today, Ainsley has a daughter of her own, Gracie and the 3 generations now live under one roof in Glasgow. Through testing and trying comedy and taking a big leap to quit his job to perform weekly full time, Meikle has found success in the most unexpected career move of his life. Shows sell out internationally each week, followers continue to grow, and the viral videos just keep coming. Looking towards the future, Meikle is hopeful he will continue to make people laugh worldwide for many years to come.

John Buultjens - Author Actor Ambassador

The first time BMX star John Buultjens wrote his story down on a piece of paper, no one believed him. Now, however, John’s story has been taken seriously as his autobiography Ride: BMX Glory, Against All The Odds has struck a chord with audiences across the world and there is even an adapted movie of his life-story starring rapper-turned-actor Ludacris, which is due for release in September. The book charts John’s humble beginnings in Glasgow. He grew up in Drumchapel with his brother and two sisters after the family moved from Whiteinch. His dad Thomas, who John plays in the movie, worked in the shipyards before he became unemployed. He was always angry and often turned on John or his wife Margaret. On one occasion, John was thrown in a fire by his father. John was eventually put into Glenrosa children’s home after he picked up a knife in a bid to stop his dad beating his mum. He was then adopted by biracial couple Eldridge and Marianna Buultjens, who today he considers his parents. He was introduced to a new way of life in Glasgow’s plush west end before the family settled in Dundee. He started on the path to becoming one of the biggest names in BMX after he got his first bike after watching ET at the cinema. His passion became a career which has allowed John to travel the world. His foray into writing, with Glasgow journalist Chris Sweeney, could be viewed as John’s ultimate achievement given he was asked to leave Harris Academy in Dundee because “they couldn’t teach him anything else”. His story has even inspired another well-known Scottish actor to take the plunge into writing an autobiography, which John learned when he received a call from the star. “It’s amazing, my story helping people open up from all walks of life.” Asked about his book he said “This book is really about leaving the past in the past – you can’t change it. “That is the message I want people to get from it.”

Iain Cunningham Film Director Irene's ghost

This is the penultimate interview from The Glasgow Film Festival. I sat down with writer and director Iain Cunningham ahead of the screening of Irene’s Ghost. Iain Cunningham’s mum died when he was only three years old. He never had the opportunity to form a lasting memory of her, and as he’s grown he’s realised that many around him are weary of divulging exactly who she was and how she died. This film is Iain’s personal journey into his mother’s life, through the family he never really knew until now. A beautiful and sensitive film, which explores not only grief and loss, but also the incredible bond that binds families together. A powerful documentary that you will find hard to forget. This is a truly brave heartfelt and unique film. I can’t remember watching something that was filled with so many different emotions, at times it’s uncomfortable and at other times warm and supportive.
