Biography

Steve Burr is originally from Rochester, NY where he began his stand-up comedy career with a first place finish in the 1998 "Funniest Person in Rochester Contest". From that moment on his hunger for the spotlight was born. Over the next few years Steve honed his comedy skills buy going to as many open mic nights as he could find, as well as participating in comedy contests and by testing material on his long-suffering friends. From there he slowly worked his way up the comedy club ladder, selling tickets, seating people, serving drinks, doing guest spots and hosting, eventually arriving at his current position as a headlining comic who tours across the country. It doesn't just end there though...

Steve also makes regular trips overseas to entertain US troops stationed in places such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait, Italy & Germany. In addition to his performing duties he is also the host and creator of his own iTunes podcast called "3 Things You Never Talk About" and can soon be seen filling the same role on a new program for the Turner Network called "Odd America".

Steve's interest in being a comedian stems from his overwhelming lack of success in all other careers he has attempted. From the unsteady hands that resulted in his failure as a neurosurgeon to the depth perception problem that led to his downfall as a paratrooper, he has been fired or let go from almost every job he's held. Comedy is really all that's left. Luckily though, Steve sees to have found his niche.

Realizing that when people go to a comedy show they are there for one reason...to laugh, Steve very naturally gets them to do just that. Combining great story telling, everyday observations, interaction with the audience and the simple desire to have fun, Steve brings the complete comedy package to the stage. He likes to give everyone a night away from it all and uses his personal brand of hilarity to do just that. He always seems to be having the best time on stage and with his silly antics you can't help but like him. So if you're looking for some good, clean fun, something a little different than anything you've experienced before, spend some time with Steve Burr and let the roller coaster ride begin.
