BIOGRAPHY
 

"His sterling academic credentials...combined with his propensity for provoking intelligent laughs, has earned Hofstetter the title of "The Thinking Man's Comic."
-The Queens Tribune

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 Showtime's "White Boyz in the Hood," VH1's "Countdown," and does what he can to represent American comedy in the groundbreaking New Line documentary "On the Road in America." Having appeared on networks from Boston to Denver, his local television appearances are too numerous to count, especially if you're using your fingers.

One of the top booked acts on the college circuit, the 28-year-old humorist also just released his third album and his third book. The book is titled "National Lampoon's Balls!" Thankfully, It's a sports book.

After hosting Four Quotas on Sirius Satellite Radio for two seasons, Hofstetter moved to broadcast radio, and his Sports Minute (Or So) is currently syndicated on over 150 stations and in over 30 newspapers. Hofstetter released his first live comedy album in 2006, CURE FOR THE CABLE GUY, which debuted at #22 on Billboard's comedy charts. Hofstetter is a former weekly columnist for SportsIllustrated.com and NHL.com, where he publicly admitted to being a Ranger fan.

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. His reach includes 200,000 friends on Facebook and 400,000 more on MySpace, with thousands more every week. SteveHofstetter.com is one of the top two most trafficked websites of any American standup act on the market today, behind Dane Cook's appropriately named DaneCook.com.

Hofstetter was named one of Two Drink Minimum magazine's Best New Faces of 2004, which confuses him since he definitely had a face in 2003. And while Hofstetter's live shows are routinely sold out, he is best known for his writing, first published at age 15 (when he also had a face). 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. He did not have a face that night.

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. The column gained popularity with syndication in several newspapers and websites, including collegehumor.com.

Hofstetter also looks a great deal like Michael Rappaport.
