Don’t Let the Laughter Fool You: The Steve Rizzo Success Story
“The Least Likely to Succeed… NOT!”
From All-Star Comedian to Hall of Fame Speaker
Perhaps the most unexpected aspect of Steve’s career was the stellar degree of success he achieved as a national headline comedian, with opening acts such as Drew Carey, Rosie O’Donnell and Dennis Miller. He shared the marquee with Ellen DeGeneres, Rodney Dangerfield, Eddie Murphy and Jerry Seinfeld. Steve starred in his very own Showtime comedy special, earning him honors as a Showtime Comedy All-Star.
[Steve] used to be a stand-up comic, but now he’s a speaker who is inspiring people all over the world.
But the surprises didn’t stop there. At the pinnacle of his stand-up career, Steve walked away from comedy to pursue his true purpose and passion—to teach people how to be happy and successful no matter their circumstances. He traded his standing ovations as a stand-up comedian for more fulfillment (and yes, more standing ovations) as a motivational keynote speaker.
Steve has shared his blueprint for personal and professional success with audiences across the globe. He is a member of the prestigious Speakers Hall of Fame—an honor bestowed on fewer than 200 speakers worldwide since 1977.
