Chris Kirby Ventriloquist Wikipedia
Chris Covington was born in 1942 to Peter and Eileen Covington in Croydon, England.
When Chris was seven years old, his family made the trip to Australia, initially settling in Adelaide but then relocating to Woomera for a while so that Chris could finish his education there. Chris and his younger brother, Andrew, were exposed to theater throughout their youth due to their parents' engagement in local amateur shows everywhere they resided. Chris's mother was an actress, and their father was a musician.
It only took him a few months working at the Commonwealth Bank in Adelaide to become fully persuaded of the advantages of pursuing a career in show business.
If he went by his name, Chris Covington would have a smaller fan base. It was somewhere in the early 1960s when he decided to alter his name. At the time, he was only beginning to perform in nightclubs in Sydney. Chris's early years were spent cultivating a keen interest in ventriloquism. Chris's dad appeared to be happy with the fact that he was ventriloquism rather than music, and it was because of his dad that Chris acquired his first doll.
Experiments with ventriloquism done in one's youth can lead to possibilities to perform in the ever-evolving world of live television. It can be credited with beginning one's professional life as Chris Kirby on a worldwide scale. In Adelaide, he was the host of a children's television program, beginning a lifelong following in Australia.
