John Ross Bowie
John Ross Bowie spent 4 years performing all over the country with the acclaimed sketch comedy group “Naked Babies” and studying at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in his native New York City. After graduating with a degree in English from Ithaca College, John went through several careers before settling on acting – 1 year as a high school teacher, 2 as a copywriter for a consulting firm, 4 years as the bassist for the seminal pop-punk band “Egghead.” And even one day as a real-life paralegal (which is a far harder job than it appears on TV.)
In 2001, John distilled his various jobs into a one man show “Paid to Stand Around,” performing it in New York and L.A. He plays Wally Berman in NBC’s “AUSA” and will be seen in the upcoming features “Glory Days” and “What the &*%$ do we know?” opposite Marlee Matlin. Other credits include “Road Trip”, NBC’s “Happy Family”, “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” and over 20 TV commercials.
