Multi-talented actor, comedian, radio personality and best-selling author Steve Harvey brings his signature ‘tell-it-like-it-is’ brand of humor to America’s favorite family game show as The King of Comedy takes the podium as host of Family Feud on WBNX-TV.
Harvey brings his insightful eye towards the family dynamic with his patented, no holds barred comedic perspective on relatives, relationships and beyond. Whether he is riffing on the current state of family ties or mining the humor to be found in a contestant interview, there is no telling what his one-of-a-kind, wisecracking banter will bring.
Steve Harvey began his successful stand-up comedy career in the mid-80s, which led to a long stint as host of It's Showtime at the Apollo, as well as multiple TV sitcoms, including Me and The Boys (ABC), The Steve Harvey Show (The WB) and Steve Harvey Big Time Challenge (The WB).
Throughout his television success, Harvey never lost sight of his true passion for stand-up comedy. In 1997, he went on tour as one of the successful Kings of Comedy alongside Cedric The Entertainer, the late Bernie Mac and D.L. Hughley, which led to the taping of one of the most successful comedy DVDs in history —The Original Kings of Comedy— directed by Spike Lee.
In 2006, Harvey released Don’t Trip…He Ain’t Through With Me Yet, a family friendly DVD unlike anything he had ever done before, and Still Trippin, for fans who were more used to his original, cutthroat, tell-it-like-it-is style of comedy.
Harvey also currently hosts his signature, syndicated radio talk show Steve Harvey Morning Show, which is heard daily by millions of listeners nationwide from 6-10 AM EST. The morning show has also allowed him to share relationship advice with his listeners through its “Strawberry Letter” segment, where he responds to relationship questions.
The overwhelming popularity of the “Strawberry Letter,” led Harvey to write his first book entitled Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man (Harper Collins), released on January 27, 2009. The widely-acclaimed, #1 New York Times Best-Seller is Harvey’s ultimate personal guide to unlocking the male mind, understanding his game, anticipating his moves and countering with unstoppable offense and defense.
Harvey has appeared on numerous morning, talk, news and late night shows including The Oprah Winfrey Show, Nightline, Good Morning America, The Ellen Degeneres Show, The Tyra Banks Show, The Early Show, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, CNN and Larry King Live.
Steve Harvey spent his childhood on 112th Street in Cleveland, Ohio and graduated from Glenville High School. In 2015, the portion of the street he grew up on was renamed "Steve Harvey Way".
