Who is Broderick Steven Harvey?

Broderick Steven "Steve" Harvey is an American comedian, actor, entertainer, and radio personality. [1][2] He is probably best known as the star of the WB sitcom The Steve Harvey Show, and as one of the four comedians featured in the Spike Lee film The Original Kings of Comedy. Currently, he is the host of The Steve Harvey Morning Show, a nationally syndicated radio program. He is also the author of Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man: What Men Really Think About Love, Relationships, Intimacy, and Commitment, which was released in March 2009.

Harvey was born on January 17, 1957(1957-01-17) in Welch, West Virginia and was the son of Eloise and Jesse Harvey, a coal miner.[3] He moved to Cleveland, Ohio and graduated from Glenville High School in 1974. He has held jobs as both an insurance salesman and a boxer.

He began doing stand-up comedy in the mid-1980s, and was a finalist in Second Annual Johnnie Walker National Comedy Search in 1989, eventually leading to a long stint as host of It's Showtime at the Apollo, succeeding Mark Curry in that role. His success as a stand-up comedian led to a starring role on the ABC show, Me and the Boys in 1994. He would later star on the WB network show, The Steve Harvey Show, which ran from 1996 to 2002. While wildly popular in the African-American community (the show won multiple NAACP Image Awards), the show never achieved critical acclaim outside of the African-American community, a matter about which Harvey has often complained.

In 1997, Harvey continued his work in stand-up comedy, touring as one of the Kings of Comedy, along with Cedric the Entertainer, D.L. Hughley and Bernie Mac. The comedy act would later be put together into a film by Spike Lee called The Original Kings of Comedy.

Harvey is the host of his own morning radio show, The Steve Harvey Morning Show, which was originally syndicated under Radio One, Inc. broadcasting company, from September 2000 until May 2005. Despite efforts to syndicate the show nationally, ultimately, it aired only in L.A., on KKBT, and in Dallas on KBFB, with Harvey splitting his time between the Dallas and L.A. studios. As a result, Harvey and Radio One decided to part ways shortly before his contract expired. In September 2005, Harvey signed a joint syndication deal with Premiere Radio Networks and Inner City Broadcasting Corporation for a new incarnation of The Steve Harvey Morning Show. The show is based out of WBLS, in New York. Steve Harvey is said to be the highest paid air personality on a one-market basis in the industry,” That“Radio One paid him more than Howard Stern, Rush Limbaugh, any of them, on a one-market basis. In March 2009, it was announced that The Steve Harvey Morning Show will be replacing The Tom Joyner Morning Show in
Chicago on WVAZ, which was Tom Joyner's flagship station.

He has a son, Wynton (born 1997), with ex-wife Mary Lee Harvey. They divorced after 17 years together and a 10-year marriage. Mary Harvey is suing Steve and attorney Anderson in Harris County District Court over the divorce which gave Steve all property and businesses and $1,000 monthly for son, Wynton.[6]
He remarried for the third time, on June 25, 2007, in Maui, to Marjorie Bridges-Woods.

Harvey is a member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc and is a born-again Christian.

On March 24, 2009, during a discussion about dating and relationships on the Tyra Banks Show, Steve Harvey made a number of remarks about the morals of atheists that generated controversy online. Harvey was harshly criticized by atheists and their supporters on blogs and social bookmarking sites for these remarks, many of whom considered his description of atheists to border on bigotry.[7] [8]

On May 29, 2009, during an interview on the Larry King Live television with guest host Joy Behar, Harvey again made some controversial remarks about atheists.[9]
