Steve Harvey Way

Mayor Frank G. Jackson was joined by Councilman Kevin Conwell (Ward 9) and comedian, television host, radio personality, actor, and author Steve Harvey siblings, brother Terry and sisters Pauline and Mona Harvey, for a ceremonial rededication of a portion of East 112th Street as “Steve Harvey Way” in the City of Cleveland.

Mr. Harvey spent his childhood days on East 112th Street in Cleveland, Ohio and graduated from Glenville High School in 1974. He first performed stand-up comedy at the Hilarities Comedy club on October 8, 1985 in Cleveland. By 1993, he was hosting “It's Showtime at the Apollo”. Next came “The Steve Harvey Show”, followed by, “The Kings of Comedy” movie.

In 2000, Mr. Harvey began transforming himself into a multi-platform star, first in radio, launching the “Steve Harvey Morning Show”. Then in 2009 came his best-selling book, “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man”. In 2010, Mr. Harvey began hosting “Family Feud” game show. In 2012, Mr. Harvey released the box office hit, “Think Like a Man” and took his talents to daytime talk, creating “Steve Harvey” and subsequently winning two Daytime Emmys.

Mr. Harvey is also a dedicated husband, father of seven, and philanthropist who, along with his wife Marjorie, heads the Steve and Marjorie Harvey Foundation.
