Bova’s career as a stand-up comic began when he was asked to headline a comedy show along with Moody McCarthy, a semi-finalist for the popular television series, Last Comic Standing. He now does stand-up comedy as the headliner at clubs across New York state, and also performs nationally. Bova was co-producer of Comedy Central NY, a monthly stand-up comedy series which showcases top comedians from the region. Bova is the owner of Benny HaHa’s Comedy Club, which produces shows at a number of different venues in the greater Utica, NY area.
Bova’s comedy productions include charity fundraising shows for organizations such as the Stevens Swan Humane Society, the Ava Dorfman Senior Center, and the Italian Heritage Club to name just a few. He was the founder and organizer of the CNY Veteran’s Comedy Shows, which raised money for the CNY Veteran’s Outreach Center in Utica, New York. The first show raised more than $2000 for the center.
After winning the Upper State Independent Award for Best Comedian in 2012, Bova was picked up by a New York City talent agent.
Bova lives in upstate New York with his wife and two daughters.
