Steve Trevino always knew he wanted to do stand up from the time he told jokes in his 2nd grade talent show. A small town boy, Steve stayed up late watching “Night at the Improv” on TV and knew that if he wanted to be a comedian he would have to move to a city with an Improv comedy club. After high school, Steve got a job as a doorman at the Addison Improv in order to garner stage time. He quickly earned his stripes to become the house MC, opening up for big acts traveling through the club who encouraged him to bite the bullet and move to Los Angeles.
After moving to California, he hit the road with the Three Amigos Comedy Tour starring Freddie Soto and Pablo Francisco. Coming off rave reviews he went on to become one of the youngest comedians ever to headline the Improv Comedy Club and continues to be a top draw.

He has appeared on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Comedy.TV, Comics Unleashed with Byron Allen, BET Comic View and Que Locos.
