Bryan Bowden is a manly mountain man who hails from North Carolina. Legend has it, he caught a bear with his bare hands and rode it cross-country to Chicago. That legend is probably false.
Currently Bowden is a stand-up comic. He performs regularly around town.
Bowden also has a gift for teaching. He currently is an instructor at the Second City Training Center where he teaches stand-up comedy to high school and middle school students. Yes, they are the coolest kids at school.
He is also a company member of Blewt! Productions. You may remember him as the brawny Timekeeper Willis in the wildly successful live game show Don’t Spit The Water. Coming up, you can see him reassume his role as Bushmeat, one of the futuristic talking monkey judges in Impress These Apes.
Bowden also makes funny videos. Here’s one below he recently made. It’s shot by Essay Fiesta videographer Elizabeth McQuern and features the very talented Kristen Studard.
