Shawn Bowers

Shawn Bowers is a writer, director, actor and improviser hailing from Overland Park, KS.  Dedicated to being an entertainer since he was but a wee child, Shawn specializes in sketch comedy and improvisation, but has worn the hat of graphic designer, illustrator, journalist, copywriter, editor and brand consultant as the situation demanded.

Shawn graduated from the University of Kansas with a Bachelor’s in Theatre and Film and moved to Chicago shortly thereafter to begin study at the Second City Conservatory and iO Training Program.  An accomplished producer and writer, Shawn has mounted original productions such as the found-text compilation CRAIGSHOW: Tales From Craigslist and his most recent original play, Time Traveling Mom-Dad.  His two-man sketch comedy group, Scuba Mission, performs regularly at theatres such as the Gorilla Tango, the Playground and Studio BE.  Other Chicago credits include Endangered No More, But These Are My Dress Clothes, Seeking Your Approval and The Able Bodied Chaperones.

Currently, Shawn is a writer and performer in the Bite Size Arts Ensemble™ and is assisting in the launch of the Institute for Arts Entrepreneurship™ in the Fall of 2010.  He is also hard at work on his next original play, to be mounted in Spring 2010, entitled Baby Jail.  It is, of course, about a prison for babies.
