Author, columnist, and comedian Steve Hofstetter is often called
the hardest working man in show-business. With all due respect to the
late James Brown.
Hofstetter's national TV debut came on ESPN's Quite Frankly,
where Stephen A. Smith yelled at him for three minutes. Hofstetter has
also appeared on CBS' "Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson", Showtime's
"White Boyz in the Hood", VH1's "Countdown", Sundance's "On the Road in
America", and ABC's "Barbara Walter's Special", where he thankfully did
not cry. He is the host and executive producer of "Laughs" on Fox
networks, where he only cries occasionally.
One of the top booked acts on the college circuit, the original
writer for collegehumor.com has also released five albums and three
books. Hofstetter has written humor columns for the New York Times,
SportsIllustrated.com, and NHL.com, where he publicly admitted to being a
After hosting Four Quotas on Sirius Satellite Radio for two
seasons, Hofstetter moved to broadcast radio, and his Sports Minute (Or
So) was syndicated on over 170 stations and in over 30 newspapers.
Hofstetter's second live comedy album ("Cure For the Cable Guy") reached
#20 on Billboard's comedy charts. His third album ("Dark Side of the
Room") was the first ever pay-what-you-want" comedy album, since people
were going to steal it anyway. His fourth album consisted of an hour of
100% ad-libbed material, which is, frankly, nuts. And his fifth album
hit #1 on iTunes' comedy charts, which is also a bit nuts.
Hofstetter's brutal tour schedule consists of over 100 colleges
and dozens of clubs every year, and is fueled by an immense online
popularity, tons of press, and a Prius with great gas mileage. He
reached 200,000 friends on Facebook and 400,000 more on MySpace, and
high shelves in grocery stores.
While Hofstetter's live shows are routinely sold out, he is best
known for his writing, first published at age 15, mainly to impress
girls. At 18, he co-founded "Sports Jerk of the Week", an irreverent
website featured by press like USA Today's Baseball Weekly, Sports
Illustrated and CNN. And at 20, Hofstetter took a year off of school to
head up web content for the New York Yankees. The Yankees won the World
Series that year, which would have been wonderful if they hadn't beaten
Hofstetter's Mets. Yes, he's also a Mets fan. Poor kid.
While an undergraduate at Columbia University, Hofstetter was a
well-read columnist for the Columbia Daily Spectator and a voice of the
Lions. After a summer writing for Maxim, ESPN, and Sports Illustrated
for Kids, Hofstetter turned his column into two books, and syndicated it
in several newspapers.
Without his glasses, Hofstetter also looks a great deal like Michael Rappaport.
