Steve Harvey, Steve, Stephan Harvey Biography
Broderick Stephan Harvey was born in Welch, West Virginia, in January of 1957. His father was a coal miner. Broderick comes from the actor Broderick Crawford. The family moved to Cleveland, Ohio, in the early 1960’s. Harvey graduated from Glenville High School in 1974. He attended Kent State University as well as West Virginia University.
Harvey first worked as a boxer, then later as an insurance salesman, a carpet cleaner, and even as a mailman. However, it was his love of comedy that encouraged him to try stand-up comedy at the Hilarities Comedy Club in 1985 after being homeless for several years. As Harvey began to make a name for himself as a comedian, he earned a starring role in a television show in 1994 called Me and the Boys. This lead to his own comedy show, The Steve Harvey Show, which ran from 1996 to 2002. Harvey has also acted in several movies including The Fighting Temptations and Racing Stripes.
This talented actor and comedian ended his stand up act in Las Vegas in 2012 after 27 years. He is still active on radio and television including hosting The Family Feud. Since Harvey began hosting this program, he has increased rating substantially.
Lately, however, Harvey himself has been the brunt of jokes lately. While hosting the 2015 Miss Universe Beauty Pageant, Harvey misread the card given to him with the winners names and accidentally stated that Miss Columbia was the winner before announcing that he had made a mistake and that the winner was actually Miss Philippines. This truly embarrassed the comedian but not to worry, he is contracted to continue doing the pageant for several more years.
Harvey has a current net worth in 2016 of $100 million, which is certain to increase as he continues to successfully host The Family Feud and correctly calling out the winners of the Miss Universe Pageant.
