The Polar Bearings are a new independent comedy trio from Melbourne. Stuart Bowden, Margaret Paul and Tim Ross have been working together as actors, writers and musicians since 2004.
In 2010, they aim to be the first musical comedy trio to sail around the world. But playing the ukulele is hard in a life jacket.
This year, Margaret and Stuart worked as writer/performers in 'Hark!' as part of the Edinburgh International Festival. The Scotsman described it as "superb."
Stuart toured Australia in 2008 with Bell Shakespeare Company’s ‘Actors At Work’ program. He also performed in Hayloft Theatre’s ‘Yuri Wells,’ in the 2009 Melbourne Fringe Festival, which won the Adelaide Fringe Festival award.
Margaret is a regular contributor to The Age, and has written a thesis on the philosophy of comedy. She also co-wrote and performed in ‘Got Viking? A Musical Misadventure with Horns,’ which sold out in the 2005 Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
Tim performed stand-up around Adelaide for several years, before moving to Melbourne to study acting at the Victorian College of the Arts. Since graduating, Tim has performed for short film, theatre and television, including Channel 10’s Rush and Neighbours.‘Songs in the Sea, Major?’ is the maiden voyage for the Polar Bearings. Stay tuned for dates for Adelaide Fringe Festival and Melbourne International Comedy Festival, 2010.
