New York born, Hollywood raised, stand-up comedian, writer and actor Steven Alan Green started at The Comedy Store in the 80’s heyday as one of the house emcee’s and gag joke writers for Jay Leno, Arsenio Hall, Jimmy JJ Walker, Roseanne Barr and many others. His original comedy writing has appeared on The Tonight Show on NBC, The Arsenio Hall Show, and The Joan Rivers Show on Fox.
Moving across the pond to London, England in the early Nineties, Steven established himself as a top club and theatre comedian, eventually creating and producing “High On Laughter,” a comedy show TV series for a charity launched by Princess Diana.
After doing a stand-up routine for years where every show was his last because he was “addicted to the laughter”, Steven decided to produce something for real drug addicts. And so, High On Laughter was born. Comedians who’ve performed on the show include: George Wendt, Zach Galifiniakis, Jim Gaffigan, Rick Overton, Paul Provenza, Bobcat Goldthwait, Emo Philips and Earl Okin.
Steven’s TV and radio appearances include hosting The South Park Weekend on Comedy Central UK and as the American correspondent for BBC Radio 2 Scotland on the Fred MacAulay Show.
His celebrated one-man show, “I Eat People Like YOU for Breakfast!” (about his infamous encounter in London with comedy icon Jerry Lewis) garnered Steven high critical acclaim and ticket sales in the UK and went on to sold-out runs and further critical acclaim in New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
As a finalist in the Seattle International Comedy Competition, Steven did his famous “farewell performance,” every show his last.
Over the course of his stand-up career, Steven performed over 5,000 last shows across America, Canada, the UK and Western Europe.
“SAG” has written and told stories live at The Comedy Central Stage in Hollywood, The Moth, and performed 4 one-man shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Steven wrote and directed the 2007 surreal comedy short, “Little Things”, a love story between a bomb-disposal expert with extreme OCD and the woman he loved from afar.
Steven Alan Green’s popular blog for The Jewish Journal online, “Enjoy the Veal”, is one part comedy review and one part personal existential travelogue and is enjoyed both by his fans here in America, as well as his adopted home of England.
As one fan of ETV put it: “Enjoy the Veal is absolutely inspired stream of consciousness! Hysterical, funny, biting, insightful, grandiose. A surreptitiously diplomatic narrative smart enough to sanely and ultimately further his own self-interests. Green is a brilliant, but fatefully undisciplined comic genius, grabbing the baton, (i.e. QWERTY keyboard in this case) from the likes of Hunter S. Thompson and Norman Mailer (Think “Fire on the Moon”). Even if you don’t follow it all, it’s a wonderful runaway train ride consisting of his painful life experiences, his attitudes, observations and especially his misgivings. Kudos and hosannas!! About THAT, there are no misgivings on our part!” - Danny & Joe, somewhere in England.
As former “International Comedy Correspondent for the BBC”, Steven carries on his conversation skills in his new podcast The Uber Show.
Steven runs a new story-telling night at The Comedy Store. “Comedy Stories” is real stand-up comedians telling real backstage stories. It’s fun, funny and truly revealing great entertainment (note: not yet listed on comedy store website)!
Steven is a popular under card contender in the hottest comedy show in LA. The Roast Battle is two comedians going up against each other as they hurl insults. It’s fun, funny, and truly loving (scroll down article to see me).
