A classically trained actor and former street juggler, David Kovac specializes in combining sophisticated humor with cleverly crafted magic routines. His deft, dapper performance style is drawn from the very best traditions of vaudeville and refined variety theatre, and he was critically acclaimed in the role of Applegate The Devil in the hit musical DAMN YANKEES! The Chicago Tribune named David Kovac a "Trickster Hero," referring to him as “a Wizard of Odd who places art before effect, turning simple tricks into theatrical presentations.” Notable venues back home in Chicago include Millennium Park, Second City, and over 1000 performances at the popular Navy Pier. Mr. Kovac appears often at the world famous Magic Castle in Hollywood, CA and has toured five continents as a guest entertainer with Crystal Cruises. In 2016, First Folio Theatre will be producing his full evening show, FOOLING BUDDHA, An Evening of Myth, Mystery and Infinite Jest.
