Quotes & Highlights

“Loud, funny and surprisingly insightful.” Chicago Sun Times
“Dead on, dead funny assessment of life!” Houston Chronicle


Steve McGrew’s observational humor about life in the south, his ex-wives and “old school” techniques for child-rearing will make you cry from laughter.  Known as the “Equal Opportunity Offender,” McGrew tackles all subjects with hilarity and irreverence.  His first venture onto the stage was at an amateur night in a Houston comedy club in 1979.  “I went up and made fun of my ex-wife. That was easy.”  And the rest, as they say, is comedy history.  Since then, McGrew has appeared on Evening at the Improv, Caroline’s Comedy Hour, Comedy on the Road from London, MTV, VH-1, TNN, Star Search and was in the cable ACE award-winning SHOWTIME’S Full Frontal Comedy just to name a few.  He’s also appeared on several Comedy Central shows including Premium Blend, Shorties Watchin’ Shorties and in his own Comedy Central Presents special in which he received a standing ovation.

Known for his charming, witty and energetic stage persona, Carlos Oscar fully acts out his jokes by telling stories everyone can identify with and metamorphosing into various characters and voices. He jokes most often about the humorous side of family, pop culture and everyday mishaps.  His comedy is always crossover so it has given him a platform to entertain all audiences. He says, “When people hear I’m clean, they may think ‘how is he a comic?’ The reality is I am much more creative and funnier with material I don’t and won’t fall back on with four-letter words or lewd innuendos to entertain an audience.”  It is this brand of comedy that has paved the way to appearances on TV such as The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, HBO and his recent Comedy Central performance.
