Known as the “Equal Opportunity Offender”, STEVE McGREW’s lively, opinionated and definitely un-politically-correct brand of stand-up has made him one of the most popular working comics today. Featuring BOBBY TESSEL
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.
A Star Search semi-finalist, Steve is a veteran of virtually every cable comedy show, including A&E's "Evening at the Improv," Nashville Network's "Crook and Chase," Showtime's "Comedy Club Network" and "Comedy All Stars," "Caroline's Comedy Hour," TNN's "Nashville Now," "Music City Tonight" and "Funny Business," VH-1's "Stand Up, Stand Up" and MTV's "Half Hour Comedy Show," CMT's "20 Most Redneck Moments" and CMT's "Comedy Stage."
As a kid, I always liked comedy and would listen to albums by George Carlin, Bob Newhart, Bill Cosby, and Lenny Bruce. Despite my enjoyment of these great talents, I decided to pursue an unfunny career and left Los Angeles for San Francisco State College to be a lawyer. When that did not hold my attention, I switched majors and ended up getting a Bachelor of. Art Degree in Communications.
