Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma and raised in Houston, TX Steve McGrew honed his comedy chops at the same comedy club that Sam Kinison and the Houston outlaw comics did. Steve has done comedy his whole life, not only doing standup but being an editorial cartoonist for the Houston newspaper and a Monday to Friday drive time disc jockey for two Denver country radio stations. While being a DJ he would fly out for weekend gigs as a headliner in some of the country’s best comedy clubs. We give him a nomination for the hardest working man in show business.
Overqualified to be a DJ. Steve’s radio career was distinguished, garnering national awards for Best Morning Personality, Best Morning show, and the Marconi radio award for Best Large Market Personality. We caught up with Steve in Kansas City backstage at the Uptown Theatre where he was opening for Dolly Parton. What a show!! We watched backstage for a different perspective, Awesome.
Steve recorded for us in the early 1990’s and again in 2011, The earlier recording is now CD number 1 of a 2 CD set called “Country Comedy”. The latter is “One Sick Puppy”. And both are hysterical. Of all his jobs Steve likes standup the best. With the kind of feedback he gets from the audience we see why. He kills everytime.
