The Thing About Things

BY JAMIE BOWEN
@ VOL 5 ON SEP 14, 2015

Jamie Bowen pokes fun at himself in this tale of his love of junk and human experiences! As he puts it, "..the thing with things is that the thing the thing represents is often more interesting than the thing".

Jamie is an award-winning comedian from New Zealand. He’s toured internationally in Europe, the UK, and Australia where he sold out the Sydney Opera House with Rhys Darby.  Having yet to gig in America he’s told us he's going to count tonight as his first in New York  - beaming in from Auckland, New Zealand.
