About Me

My name is Kendall Bowden and I'm a New York City based actress. I recently graduated from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts where I earned a BFA in Drama with a minor in Producing on a talent-based scholarship. At Tisch, I studied both at Stella Adler Studio of Acting and Stonestreet Studios. In addition to my training at NYU, I study vocal performance at Juilliard Evening Division and with Sketch and Improv at Upright Citizens Brigade. When I’m not writing my own sketches, I’m a regularly featured extra on Saturday Night Live (and sometimes other Netflix, CBS, and NBC shows!). I love writing & playing strong empowered woman but am also very down to clown. My lifelong goal is to make people laugh as I love spreading joy. I hope we can laugh together soon!
