teve comes from an unconventional background. He was a cartoonist for the Houston Chronicles but knew early on that comedy was in his blood and would manifest itself in one way or another. He found that drawing cartoons was not nearly expressive enough for his exuberant personality and ventured onto the stage at an amateur night in a Houston comedy club."So I went up and made fun of my ex-wife. That was easy." He soon became a fixture at Houston's Comedy Workshop where Sam Kinison and Bill Hicks launched their careers.
