Leann Bowen

Leann is a writer, improvisor, and director from Los Angeles. After graduating from film school, Leann decided to take sketch writing classes at UCB because they had a cool website. She soon was sucked into the glorious world of comedy and immersed herself in all things sketch and improv.

She is currently a writer for the Maude team Nephew and graces the stage occasionally in very, very weird bit shows. She improvises all over town at various indie improv shows with her all girl group, Just Mimsy.  She's directed and written handfuls of sketches, bits, shorts and 'things' that can be found on Funnyordie.com and Youtube.
