Erasing the line between Silly and Cynical
One joke at a time
Man? Myth? Legend?
Some say none of these. He is however a stand-up comic.
With influences ranging from Richard Pryor to Fozzie Bear, Steve has formed a unique style that bridges the gap between clever and goofy. His material offers layers that leave an audience howling and thinking at the same time. He is Smart and Silly. Daft and thoughtful. Intelligent and ridiculous, but always clever. And clean. Mostly.
In the decade since starting in the great San Francisco comedy scene, Steve has played clubs, colleges and corporate events across America. In addition, to reaching his dream of performing on David Letterman's show, he's been a repeat guest on Craig Ferguson, Byron Allen and the Bob & Tom Show.
But of all the shows Steve has done, he remains most proud of the many trips he's made to the Mid-East to perform for our troops. As a former Navy Submariner, Steve knows how much those men and women sacrifice for our country, and how much they need our support, and someone to laugh at.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x=independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
