About Steve Harvey
Steve Harvey is a media conglomerate personified in a man whose career began doing stand-up comedy in the mid-1980s. His success as a stand-up comedian eventually led to a long stint as host of It’s Showtime at the Apollo. His stand-up success has also led to multiple TV shows and movies, serving various roles on some projects acting, hosting, writing and producing, and his career has continued to flourish, becoming a top-rated radio host, fashion entrepreneur, best-selling author, popular game show host on Family Feud, and 2013 People’s Choice Award winner as “Favorite New Talk Show Host” for his new daytime show Steve Harvey. Harvey just recently renewed deals in January 2013 for his daytime show and radio show.
On television, in addition to a seven-year stint hosting Apollo, he starred in ABC’s Me and The Boys, the WB shows The Steve Harvey Show for six seasons and Steve Harvey’s Big Time Challenge for two seasons. In 2012 Harvey also celebrated his 12th year as the only host of BET’s Celebration of Gospel. Harvey has also hit the big screen in movies such as Love Don’t Cost a Thing, You Got Served, Johnson Family Vacation, Madea Goes to Jail, and the #1 box office smash Think Like A Man, which was released in 2012 and adapted from his #1 book.
Throughout his award-winning career, Harvey has never lost sight of his passion for stand-up comedy, touring the U.S and Canada. In 1997 he toured as one of the Kings of Comedy alongside Cedric The Entertainer, the late Bernie Mac and D.L. Hughley. The tour’s immediate success led to the taping of one of the most successful comedy films in history – The Original Kings of Comedy – directed by Spike Lee. In 2006 he released Don’t Trip…He Ain’t Through With Me Yet, a clean and family-friendly DVD, unlike any he had ever done before. Due to overwhelming demand for his original style of tell-it-like-it-is comedy, Harvey released the comedy special Still Trippin, on DVD in 2008 to critical success. In 2011 he paired up with Grammy Award winner Kirk Franklin, creating the first-ever Steve Harvey and Kirk Franklin Comedy Gospel Tour. Later that year, Harvey kicked off his final stand-up comedy tour, where he hung up his touring days with his final stand-up show (Steve Harvey’s Grand Stand-Up Finale on Pay-Per-View) in Las Vegas on August 2, 2012.
Currently Steve Harvey is the host of the long-running syndicated game show Family Feud, in his third season as host.

Produced by Endemol USA and executive produced by Harvey, business partner Rushion McDonald, and showrunner Alex Duda, Harvey’s talk show is airing in 98% of the country, and being distributed by NBCUniversal Domestic Television Distribution. A continuing hit with audiences, Harvey recently won the 2013 People’s Choice Award honors as “Favorite New Talk Show Host” and the show was renewed for a second season in national syndication.
In September 2000, Harvey created the nationally syndicated Steve Harvey Morning Show, which currently airs Monday – Friday, 6 – 10 a.m. EST with nearly 70 radio stations and approximately 6 million weekly listeners. Syndicated by Premiere Networks since 2005, the #1 rated morning show is the only Urban Syndicated Radio Network that is broadcasting in 8 of the Top 10 radio markets.

The Steve Harvey Morning Show has also allowed him to share relationship advice with his listeners through the “Strawberry Letter” segment, where he responds to relationship questions.

His first book Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man: What Men Really Think About Love, Relationships, Intimacy, and Commitment, was released on January 27, 2009. Harvey’s must-have guide gave women the upper hand on dating with the inside scoop on the male mind, understanding his game, and anticipating his moves, with the widely-acclaimed book staying on the New York Times Best Sellers List for 64 weeks.

The Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man book was also re-released in paperback, and has hit #1 on the New York Times Best Sellers List again.
Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man’s runaway success added another dimension to his life and career, as a sought-after advisor sharing the male perspective. Extending his role, Harvey made multiple appearances on Good Morning America as a contributor on family and relationships and had a monthly relationship column in Essence Magazine; he also launched the dating site LocateYourLove.com.
On December 7, 2010, HarperCollins released Harvey’s highly-anticipated second book, Straight Talk, No Chaser: How to Find, Keep, and Understand a Man, which quickly became another best seller, debuting at #1 on the New York Times Best Sellers List.

Straight Talk, No Chaser was also re-released in paperback on August 28, 2012.
The popularity of the Steve Harvey Morning Show and the inspirational advice, comedy segments and book also landed Steve Harvey and his co-hosts on the CENTRIC TV network with The Steve Harvey Project, which premiered November 15, 2010. Receiving rave reviews, The Steve Harvey Project, an hour-long show that aired nightly, captured the fast-paced morning show each day with new and beloved comedy skits, celebrity interviews, the Strawberry Letter, in-studio contestants for Harvey’s weekly singing talent show, and the weekly Locate Your Love dating segment.
