Who is his adoptive father Steve Harvey?

Steve was born in Welch, West Virginia USA, on 17 January 1957 – his zodiac sign is Capricorn, and he holds American nationality. He’s probably known best for hosting the short comedy game-show “Family Feud”; each episode follows two families competing by answering survey questions, for a prize of $20,000, and if they win five times in a row, a brand new car.

Steve was raised in Welch alongside his siblings Terry, Mona and Pauline, by their mother Eloise Vera who was a housewife, and their father Jesse Harvey who was a coal miner. Steve had a problem with stuttering while growing up, but was able to overcome it.

The family moved to Cleveland, Ohio when Steve was around 11 years old, and the street which they lived in – East 112th Street – was in 2015 renamed to Steve Harvey Way.

He studied at Glenville High School, and it was during his four years there that he became interested in comedy. Upon matriculating in 1974, Steve enrolled at Kent State University, then transferred to West Virginia University two years later, graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in 1978.

Prior to launching his career on TV, Steve worked numerous jobs, including being a mail carrier, insurance salesman and carpet cleaner. It was on 8 October 1985 that he performed stand-up comedy for the first time, and because he then prematurely quit his other jobs, and focused solely on comedy, Steve was homeless for three years, sleeping in his 1976 Ford.

He was a finalist in the 1990 Second Annual Johnnie Walker National Comedy Search, and this helped him to be hired to host the variety show “It’s Showtime at the Apollo”. Steve was then invited to star in the 1994 sitcom “Me and the Boys”, and between 1996 and 2002, he hosted his own comedy program “The Steve Harvey Show”.

He’s been hosting the weekday radio program “The Steve Harvey Morning Show” since 2000, and he’s also a bit of an actor, having appeared in 2003 in the musical comedy movie “The Fighting Temptations” and the teen comedy movie “Love Don’t Cost a Thing”, and in 2005 the sports comedy film “Racing Stripes”.

He published his book “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man” in 2009.

It was in September 2010 that Steve began hosting “Family Feud”, while he’s today also hosting “Celebrity Family Feud”.

In 2017, Steve launched Steve Harvey Global, uniting all of his businesses under one.

He married his first wife Marcia in 1981, and they have a son Broderick Harvey Jr. together, and twin daughters Brandi and Karli, but they divorced in 1994. Steve married his second wife Mary Shackelford in 1996, and she gave birth to their son Wynton; they divorced in November 2005. After marrying Marjorie in June 2007, Steve revealed that she changed his life, and made him a better man.

Although he’s one of the most popular entertainers in America, there are also a lot of people who dislike Steve, believing him to be racist and self-centered; in January 2017, he ridiculed Asian men in his show “Steve Harvey”, claiming that he doesn’t understand why any black or white women would want to go out with them.
