Steve Harvey began doing stand-up comedy in the mid 1980's. His success as a stand-up comedian led to a WB network show, The Steve Harvey Show, which ran from 1996 to 2022. It was a huge hit and won multiple NAACP Image Awards. In 1997, Harvey continued his work in stand-up comedy, touring as one of the "Kinds of Comedy," along with Cedric the Entertainer, D.L. Hughley, and Bernie Mac. The comedy team would later be reunited in a film by Spike Lee called The Original Kings of Comedy. Steve Harvey is now widely known as the host of the nationally syndicated Steve Harvey Morning Show, which has more than seven million listeners. Harvey continues his unending pursuit and commitment to furthering opportunities in high schools throughout the country with generous contributions from the Steve Harvey Foundation.
