Middle School & High School Evening

Kris Covi

Kris Covi

Litigation Attorney By Day,
Nebraska's 2nd Tallest Comic By Night

By day Kris Covi is a litigation attorney at the Omaha law firm of McGrath North.  On nights and weekends, he is Nebraska’s Second Tallest Comic. He entertains audiences all over the country with stories about being a 6’8” freak and growing up in Nebraska. After winning the Great American Comedy Festival as an amateur, he has won several comedy contests and was a finalist out of 450 comics at the World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas.

His love of show choir dates back to his own high school show choir experience where he spent all of his time in the back row.  He assumed it was because of his height but his choir director would later confess that it was his dancing that landed him there.
