Jamie Bowen MC/Entertainer Profile


Comedian, MC, Speaker

Boasting more than 20 years in the game Jamie Bowen one of New Zealand’s award-recognized comedians is back in Aotearoa. Having appeared in countless NZ International Comedy Festivals, opened for Rhys Darby’s tours of the UK and Australasia, and been repeatedly nominated for the prestigious Fred Award, Bowen’s commentary is on-the-nose yet approachable, fun. Embracing nonsense, his silliness and tendency to ‘probe humanity’ unites audiences in hilarity, and has seen his shows be nominated at the Aotearoa Film and Television Awards and NZ Screen Writers Awards. With that said, his appeal is international: Jamie was also picked up by American TBS for an unscripted comedy pilot, relocating to Los Angeles where he frequented The Laugh Factory, The Icehouse and The Comedy Store. Returning to New Zealand in 2020, Bowen has since released the lockdown series The Alone Rangers with Rhys Darby and Jono Pryer, and is currently working on projects set for release in 2022.
