On his 56th birthday (Jan 19) Steve Harvey received the surprise of a lifetime from a family that helped him early on in his career. He told his producers he didn't like surprises but Steve had no idea what he was about to go through. With a single line from his old friend's mouth Harvey was reduced to tears.
He received a phone call and the person on the other end said, “I just have one question, do you still love me, baby?”
Almost immediately, the retired stand up comedian burst into tears and later explained the heap of emotions.
“I was 26 years old, struggling. I didn’t have nothing and these people owned a furniture store in Cleveland. They took me in and gave me a contract with my little carpet cleaning company. When I became a comedian at 27, I didn’t have money to travel. They gave me an account at their travel agency and I ran up a bill that was $11,000 just traveling and try to make it. Those people right there, they helped me out!”
