Steve Shaffer


Steve Shaffer, born and raised in South Philadelphia, was given a Catholic education during his developing youthful years. These two events helped him in his decision to become a comedian. Starting his comedy profession in 1983, he made the first of many appearances on "The Tonight Show" with Johnny Carson within one year.
As a comic/actor he became the "Jeopardy Coach" and for over a year appeared in all television ads promoting the game show "Jeopardy." Additionally, he appeared in television commercials for Bell Telephone, Miller Lite, I.B.M., and Burger King. During his two appearances on "The Murphy Brown Show," Steve played the no-sense bartender, who enjoyed kicking Murphy out of the "Men's Club."

In 1994, Steve Shaffer wrote for the Showtime program "Full Frontal Comedy," which received a Cable Ace Award for best variety show on cable.

Steve's greatest love is stand-up comedy and has headlined comedy clubs from coast to coast. He is always in demand for return engagements. In addition to hundreds of colleges and corporate events, he has appeared with such notables as George Carlin, Paul Anka, The Beach Boys, and many others.
