They call him the “The Nice Guy”. They’ve always called him that. Steve Mingolla never met a person he didn’t like. His act is a definite burst of New York attitude mixed in with a bit of Southern hospitality. An annual talent contest was about to take place at the college and Steve was encouraged to enter as a comedian by his acting coach. The thrill of making an audience laugh had him hooked. Stand-up comedy would forever change his life. That following year, Steve dropped out of college and moved to Hollywood, CA to follow his bliss. He landed a job as a doorman at the “World Famous” Comedy Store on the Sunset Strip. It was there that he worked with and learned from comics such as Dennis Miller, Louie Anderson, Gary Shandling, Sam Kinison and Lenny Clark, just to name a few. Steve stays busy touring forty plus weeks a year all over the U.S. He’s done numerous television commercials, syndicated radio shows, corporate events, charities, military installations in Europe, comedy clubs and civic auditoriums. He has also appeared on TNN, Comedy Central, Liars and Legends and Showtime. “I don’t like to mention it, but I was also a losing contestant on both ‘The Dating Game’ and ‘Love Connection’ back when I was just getting started.” Along with his associate Vinnie “The Hit Man” Coppola, you can hear their song ‘The Wise Guys 12 Days of Christmas’ on satellite radio. Steve has also had record sales of his t-shirt, sporting a line from his show…”I got spanked, look how I turned out.” And, he is currently working on an untitled book regarding famous quotes and can be seen on Comcast Cable’s Comedy on Demand.
