In 2010, he was placed in the top 10 of Dave's Funniest Joke of the Fringe. In 2008 Gareth was nominated for the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year Award, and later won a place as part of the Comedy Reserve.
Previously he was a finalist in the Hackney Empire New Act of the Year 2007 competition, and a runner-up in the finals of You Must Be Joking and the Amused Moose Laugh-Off.

'An effortlessly assured act... exceptionally inspired and truly memorable... His material has a delicious otherworldly quality' (Chortle).
