While modeling at a fashion show, the emcee and the entertainment were "no shows." The fashion coordinator remembered the guy who kept the staff laughing backstage and decided to put him up front and center. Covington did 10 minutes of stand-up. In the roar of the crowd, a seed was planted that is leading him to fulfill his dream. Rave audience responses earned him finalist ranking in comedy competitions in the Bay Area and Seattle. His 5-minute routine on "Showtime at the Apollo," a do-or-die test for any young comic, won him slots on other top networks and television shows such as MTV, Comedy Central, BET's "Comic View, HBO's "Def Comedy Jam and sitcom Sister, Sister." He writes all of his own material and describes his comedy as "Free Flowing, everyday situations taken to the extreme." Covington is currently the host of the number one morning show in the central valley, "The Juice Crew" on B95. Where his stand up comedy comes in handy to supply listeners, with antics that keep them in stitches. His prank phone calls AKA "Dirty Deeds" have become legendary. He has also parlayed his on air personality into his own sports talk show, "The Sports Fix." This noontime interactive sports talk show airs on Fox Sports 1340 and 1400 AM. Andre is now turning his attention to the "Big Screen." He had a small but scene stealing part in The Clean Up Men, starring Oscar winning rap group Three Six Mafia. This independent film released on DVD grossed over 1.5 million dollars in sales. He is in pre-production for three upcoming features where he plans to add writer and producer to his credits.
