Comedian Steve Trevino was born in Portland, Texas, on the Third Coast. He now resides on the West Coast in Hollywood, California, living the dream that he has had since childhood, being a stand up comedian.
His professional career began in 1998 in Corpus Christi, Texas, with none other than Carlos Mencia. Soon after that, Trevino was off to Dallas with a star in his eyes. It was there that his first big road tour came about with The Three Amigos comedy tour, and then came Los Angeles. Since moving to California, Trevino has been on the road headlining improv comedy clubs across the country.
When at home, you can catch him at the Improv, the Comedy Store, Jon Lovitz Comedy Club, and at the Laugh Factory to name a few. Trevino was also involved on screen in season one of Mind of Mencia. One of Trevino's biggest gigs was The Doghouse Comedy Jam in San Francisco with names like Carlos Mencia, Dave Attell, Dave Chappelle, and Jamie Foxx. He is currently working with Rozone Productions and Free Reign, the Dallas Cowboys heavy metal band, collaborating on a comedy special for Showtime.
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. Steve performed in Spanish on Despierta America on Univision. He is a regular doing short sketches and man on the street for the syndicated program American Latino. He has appeared on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Comedy.TV, Comics Unleashed with Byron Allen, BET Comic View and Que Locos. He’s become a staple at large events such as the Latino Laugh Festival, New Faces at Just For Laughs in Montreal and the Doghouse Comedy Jam in SanFrancisco. Steve was also a writer for and appeared on Comedy Central’s Mind Of Mencia. Recently, Steve was featured in the Laugh Out Loud Comedy Festival at the California Theatre of the Performing Arts in San Bernardino along with comic greats Jay Mohr, Rita Rudner, Tommy Chong and Bill Bellamy.
