Jim Bowen (born Peter Williams on 20 August 1937) is an English stand-up comedian and TV personality. He is best known as the long-time host of the ITV gameshow Bullseye, which he hosted from its beginning in September 1981 until the end of series 15 in July 1995.
In 1959, Bowen married his work colleague, Phyllis (née Owen). She supported him throughout his career, driving him to shows, and was by his bedside when he died. The couple lived at Melling-with-Wrayton near Lancaster.

They had two children, a boy, Peter and a girl, Susan. Bowen was a supporter of Blackburn Rovers Football Club.
Bowen previously owned Arkholme for Kirkby Lonsdale railway station, on what is now the Leeds–Morecambe line between Wennington and Carnforth stations. He converted the main station building into a private dwelling.
In early 2011, it was announced that Bowen was recovering in the Royal Lancaster Infirmary, after having suffered from two mild strokes. He suffered his first stroke on 18 February and the second one whilst in hospital.Before his two strokes, Bowen was performing on cruise liners and giving corporate after-dinner speeches. By 2012, he was recovering and regaining some mobility once more, and even started performing his stage show "You Can't Beat a Bit of Bully", but suffered a third stroke in November 2014, which left him struggling to walk and talk. He died at home on 14 March 2018, aged 80.
