Mr. Harvey’s entry into comedy was a leap of faith. He was encouraged to perform at an open mic comedy night in 1985. His performance brought down the house, and the next day he quit his job to pursue his dream.
Today, Mr. Harvey is known as the busiest man in Hollywood. But in addition to being an Emmy® Award-winning entertainer, radio personality, motivational speaker, New York Times best-selling author and businessman, he is a dedicated mentor to the celebrities he helped throughout their careers, and an inspiring motivator to his fans. While his gift is being an entertainer, Mr. Harvey’s true passion is helping people, which led to the establishment of the Steve and Marjorie Harvey Foundation, dedicated to helping thousands of underprivileged children receive the tools for success.
Mr. Harvey started Steve Harvey Global in 2017, focused on creating and delivering entertaining and motivational content, products and experiences to their audience around the world. This year, he is also launching VAULT, a learning hub for future leaders, entrepreneurs and corporate visionaries.
Steve and his wife Marjorie Harvey are devoted to each other and to their family of seven children and five grandchildren, Mr. Harvey’s proudest accomplishment.
