Years of experience successfully running and compering several comedy clubs have honed Jim’s audience skills to great effect and he has seen and compered every conceivable audience from the east end of London, to northern working men’s clubs, and black tie formal dinners.

"Highly original and amusing" Time Out

"Mowten’s an instantly likeable stand-up with bags of charm and an easy manner." Chortle

Mowten is a charming and engaging stand-up, funny and interesting, the kind of man who you could spend entire evenings with shooting the breeze in bon homie. His life is a fascinating one, from living in a cult to losing a massive inheritance, and he is a skilled storyteller, so go, sit back and enjoy the twists and turns that made Mowten.

Mowten has been performing comedy since 2005 and has developed a reputation as one of the most original and exciting new acts on the circuit. His extraordinary life, his warmth and charisma and his obvious joy at engaging with the audience make him an irresistible act and an electrifying MC.
