Hello! Big Jake Hovis here. I hear that the big problem when booking a comedian online is that you never REALLY know what you are going to get - it might fit the budget, but it doesn't fit the event. Allow me to take some of the hassle out of the booking process. I have included several of videos of my performances. Let me tell you what you'll see: a funny (and handsome) guy and a crowd lovin' it. Here's what you won't see: attempts to be funny while being vulgar, edgy, or worse...political. If you want people walking away from your event with a SMILE and no complaints that the "comedian was offensive", book me. But, I'm also really funny. See my aforementioned videos.
Big Jake Hovis arrived on time and performed at our house in front of our group! He adapted seamlessly and delivered our advance joke requests and much more funny content. Big fans. Thanks so much Big Jake!
Jake was a great guy and really funny. The residents loved the prepared material and loved the improve Q & A at the end.
I have wokred a lot with Jake Hovis. His comedy transcends genra, generation and age. He's an absolute please to work with and can crush any room. Book him for your corporate event and be sure to book him again, you will be happy you did!
We had Big Jake do 25 minutes of comedy for our Valentine's Day celebration. It was a blast! He had us rolling with laughter. Super funny! Super clean! We highly recommend.
Jake was the right fit for the Valentines Dinner hosted at our church. His stories and jokes were fresh, clean and funny. He was kind, respectful and prompt.
Thanks Jake for adding to the success of our event.

What to Expect
As a corporate comedian, I performed for a variety of companies including: Dell Computers, Simmons Bank, Colorado History Museum, Cherokee Ranch & Castle, Living Security, Lakewood High School, Valor Christian High School, Ring Central, The Johnson Team (Real Estate), and more!
If you are looking for a seriously fun night, book me. If you are looking to ensure the company sponsored entertainment is not wildly inappropriate, book me. If you need your smoke detector batteries replaced, book me.
I also love telling jokes in churches. I have done so many times. Church people are my people. I was a youth pastor for six years and have a Ph. D. from a seminary. (I will talk to you all day about Charles Spurgeon.) I say that to say this "I know how to keep it clean". If you are looking for the combination of genuinely funny and church-appropriate, look no further.
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. Big Jake has worked in Christian ministry for 10 years and has a seminary degree. He has also performed at some of the best comedy clubs in the nation including Flappers in Burbank, Third Coast in Nashville, LA Comedy Club in Las Vegas, Loonee's in Colorado Springs, and, of course, Comedy Works in Denver. His comedic background includes improv, sketch shows, and auctions. He never tries to be funny by being vulgar, shocking, or worse...political. He's been entertaining audiences for years. They described him as “funny” and “big”. Jake enjoys the little things in life like his 5’3” wife and 2 miniature dachshunds.
