I've been working as a comedian, actor and writer for over 20 years. I've performed all across New Zealand and Australia, as well as Asia, UK and Europe. I've appeared in over a dozen New Zealand International Comedy Festivals, and have been on local New Zealand TV shows such as 7 Days, Comedy Gala, and AotearoHa. I've been nominated for every major comedy award in New Zealand. It makes me one of NZ's most award-nominated comedians. A bittersweet accomplishment.
I once won an award for my beard, which, while non-comedy related, is still one of my proudest achievements.
In 2019, I co-starred in pilot for a US TV network and I’m releasing Jamie Bowen: Not So Special, my first hour special. It’s a combination of my award-winning, critically acclaimed live shows Heart Goes Boom and Head Goes Bang and was filmed live at the home of New Zealand comedy, my favourite place in the world, the actual room I grew up in, The Classic. It will be available wherever good taste presides.
I truly love my job; as evidenced by hard hard I’m pretending to laugh in this photo.
Come see a show sometime.
