Jim Bowen

Actor, Writer, TV Personality
20 August 1937 to 14 March 2018

A British comedian and television host best known for presenting the game show Bullseye (1981-1995), Bowen proved the perfect fit for the light-hearted quiz where darts and trivia met. After originally working as a bin man and then a teacher, he was inspired to move into comedy after seeing Ken Dodd perform in Blackpool.
