BIOGRAPHY
jim bowen
Jim Bowen is a Lancashire born ex-Deputy Headmaster with a
natural flair for comedy in his own unique style. While teaching
he became involved with the local Dramatic Society, which
kindled his interest in show business.
In the sixties he worked as a ‘stand-up’ comedian on a part-time
basis on the notorious Northern Club circuit. The advent of Granada
TV’s “The Comedians” gave Jim the opportunity to appear on
national TV, which prompted him to leave teaching and “have a go”
in the precarious world of entertainment.
Television opportunities followed and Jim made appearances on
Granada’s “Wheeltappers and Shunters’ Social Club” alongside
Thames Television’s late-night chat show “Take Two”. Central
Television’s “Up For the Cup” and “Starburst” featured Jim together
with “Summertime Special” and “Noel’s House Party”. (He was
“Gotcha’d” by Noel as part of his Saturday night programme). Many
other guest appearances followed including “Celebrity Squares”,
“Pebble Mill”,” Family Fortunes”, “Des O’Connor Tonight” and
numerous Christmas Television Specials.
