Who Is Steve Hofstetter The Comedian?
He is a Jewish entertainment personality born with the birth sign Virgo on 11th of September 1979, in Queens, New York City, in the United States. Immediately after his birth, he was named Steven Ira Hofstetter by his parents (Ellen A. Jaffe of Rego Park, Queens, and Martin H. Hofstetter of Bellerose Manor, Queens), who raised him in Queens as well. In his formative years, Hofstetter moved to various cities with his family. Some of the cities he lived in while growing up include Rego Park, Briarwood, and Forest Hills.
The comedian finished his high school education in 1997 at Hunter College High School and later earned his Bachelor’s degree from Columbia University’s School of General Studies in 2002. Prior to his graduation, he served as a writer for the Columbia Spectator and President of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity.
An avid supporter of the Queens-based basketball team, the New York Mets, Steve majorly discusses trendy events, American politics, pop culture, foreign policy, ignorance, religion, and American culture. As a comedian, he dwells more on social commentary, political satire, and observational comedy, making him one of America’s most versatile entertainers. He has made a good number of television appearances on various TV networks, including ABC’s Barbara Walters Special, Showtime’s White Boyz in the Hood, ESPN’s Quite Frankly, CBS’s The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, and VH1’s Countdown.
Owing to his deep knowledge on several issues, Steve often receives invitations from radio stations for special news programs. If you are in Atlanta, Tulsa, Boston, Miami, and Louisville, you can hook up with him during sports presentations on sports radio stations. Being a phenomenal radio personality, the multi-hyphenate executant has also done great jobs as a host. He is best known for hosting The National Lampoon Radio Sports Minute (Or So), Finding Babe Ruth on FS1, Laughs (on Fox television stations), Road Hard, Teenage Tramp, and Four Quotas (which aired two times a week on Sirius Satellite Radio).
A regular panellist on MLB Network’s show MLB Now, Hofstetter has also written for mega outfits such as Sports Illustrated for Kids, Maxim, and ESPN. The comedian once served as a weekly columnist for Meredith Corporation’s sports magazine Sports Illustrated, where he featured his “Stand Up Guy” every Monday morning. Steve’s online career is on the upward side as well, having gained over 100 million views on his YouTube channel.
His Net Worth
Considered as one of America’s hardest working men in show business, there is no doubt that the author/columnist/internet personality/television star/social commentator makes a sizeable income from his wealth of business channels. However, his net worth is yet to be publicized as it is currently under review. That, notwithstanding, we can assure that he has deep pockets and will continue to make more so long as he keeps his career alive.
Hofstetter got married to Sara Michal Tenenbein on December 19, 2010, at the Jumeirah Essex House Hotel in Manhattan. Sarah was born to a computer consult mother called Marian Newborn Tenenbein and a father who is a professor of statistics and actuarial science at New York University called Aaron Tenenbein of Manhattan.
The pair met each other for the first time on Jewish singles dating app, Jdate. Sara, a Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) graduate with an M.B.A in business from the University of Pennsylvania, had signed up on the app just to meet new friends as she was relocating to New York to start up work in the theatre industry, not knowing she would eventually meet her husband-to-be on the app. After getting impressed with each other’s profile, Sara and Steve Hofstetter agreed to meet and would develop an instant chemistry which led to their engagement and then marriage. Although information about their divorce is difficult to come by, it appears the two are no longer together as husband and wife. According to sources, the couple officially terminated their marriage on May 1, 2016, and there is no report about them having children or not.
