Still, the 27-year comedic veteran has numerous irons in the fire, so fans will get to see even more of the funnyman.

Harvey can currently be seen as the host of the long-running daytime TV game show “Family Feud.”  He is also the host of the popular morning syndicated radio program, “The Steve Harvey Morning Show.”  Last month, the 55-year-old entertainer was named the 2013 Hollywood Walk of Fame honoree for radio.

Getting to the top was a slow and steady climb for Harvey who has now built a mega-empire that runs the gamut.  Harvey first achieved widespread fame with the 1996 TV debut of “The Steve Harvey Show,” which ran six seasons on the now-defunct WB Network.

Harvey then toured with the ‘Kings of Comedy’ in 2000 alongside fellow comedians Cedric the Entertainer,  D.L. Hughley, and the late-Bernie Mac.  The tour was made into a documentary entitled “The Original Kings of Comedy” and was directed by Spike Lee.

Harvey also went on to host a game show, “Steve Harvey’s Big Time Challenge,” that ran from 2003 to 2005 and also appeared on the WB Network.

Besides acting in films, the multi-hat-wearing and oh-so-debonair Harvey also sashayed in to designing his own successful clothing line, which is sold at major retail outlets throughout the country.

The dice continued to roll for Harvey when he decided to write books that became bestsellers.  One of his books inspired the hit movie “Think Like a Man,” starring Michael Ealy and Taraji P. Henson, which opened earlier this year.

What could possibly be next for the tireless comedian?

A talk show, of course!

Harvey will host a syndicated daytime TV talk show, “Steve Harvey,” which debuts Sept. 4.
