Steve Harvey - biography, date of birth, place of birth, filmography, clips, Actor, Writer, Producer.
Born January 17, 1957, West Virginia, USA - comedian, writer, actor.
Moved to Cleveland, Ohio, where he graduated from high school in 1974. For a time, Stevie was an insurance agent and a boxer.
His career as an improvisational comedian began in the mid-1980s. As a prominent stand-up comedian, Harvey landed one of the lead roles in the American sitcom 'Me and the Boys' in 1994. He later turned into a comedian for the television series The Steve Harvey Show, which ran from 1996 to 2002. Although Steve was wildly popular in the African American community and won several awards from the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, outside of it, Harvey was not complained as often and even expressed dissatisfaction about him.
The comedian toured in 1997 with members of the reality show Kings of Comedy, D.L. Hewley, Cedric 'The Entertainer' and Bernie Mac. Their comedy project formed the basis for Spike Lee's True Kings of Comedy, which stars the entire superb four on reality television. The release of the film, its DVD sales, as well as Steve's shooting in the documentary "Don't Trip ... He Ain't Through With Me Yet" made it even more popular. Harvey released his hip-hop and R&B album on a label he founded and wrote the book "Steve Harvey's Big Time" .
In 2003, the actor co-starred with Cuba Gooding Jr. and Beyonce Knowles in Jonathan Lynn's musical comedy "Fighting Temptations", and in 2005 he took part in the offscreen work on the cartoon "Reckless Races", voicing a fly named Buzz.
Harvey hosted his own morning radio show of the same name, which originally aired through Radio One from September 2000 to May 2005. A lot of effort went into getting the comedian's project to a national level, but ultimately only the residents of Los Angeles (KKBT station) and Dallas (KBFB) listened to the Steve Harvey Morning Show. As a result, Harvey and Radio One decided to end their partnership shortly before their contract expired. In September 2005, Steve struck a new deal with the Premiere radio network and the Inner City broadcasting corporation, so that the comedian's vanished radio show had a rebirth. Steve's program aired on New York radio station WBLS until it was announced in March 2009 that Tom Joyner's Morning Show would replace Steve Harvey's Morning Show. On January 20, 2010, the news came that Steve would become the new host of the popular TV game show Family Feud from September, replacing John O'Hurley. In 2015, he was the host of the Miss Universe show, in which, during the awards ceremony, he named Colombia the winner, although it was necessary to name the Philippines.
