Jim Bowen is best known for his “Bullseye” TV Game Show which for fourteen years was regularly watched by over twelve million viewers and attained “cult” status amongst University students, which led to regular appearances at Student Union Venues.
As a direct result of his long and varied television work Jim has become a famous face instantly recognised by the public.
Way back in the early 70's, Bowen's appearances on The Comedians got him noticed and he is still one of the nicest guys you can find in showbiz, but also one of the wickedest wits. On Sunday evenings through the winter months, Bullseye stopped being a game-show and became an institution. Jim Bowen's droll delivery earned him cult status and in many peoples eyes he became a God amongst television gameshow presenters.
Jim's style and popular catchphrases such as "super, smashing, great", "stay out of the black and into the red, nothing in this game for two in a bed", "you can't beat a bit of bully" and "look at what you could have won" spawned a large number of mickey-takes (not to mention the odd notable out-take on "It'll be Alright on the Night").
