Big Jake Hovis is performing at Vail Comedy Festival May 26-28, 2023

Big Jake Hovis (2022)

Jake Hovis is huge. Seriously, he is 6’8” and well over a hundred pounds. His comedy, like the air in his hometown of Denver, tends to be clean and fresh. Jake is a high school teacher who works out new bits during class. He has a solid background in improv performing in front of paid audiences of adults 83 times in 2018 (He kept a spreadsheet). They described him as “funny” and “big”. Jake enjoys the little things in life like his 5’3” wife and 2 miniature dachshunds.
