Steve White operates with breakneck speed, and in the unlikely event you snooze, you will without question lose. His snappy, unpredictable dialogues are enough to make a morgue crackle with energy, and whether he is acting, writing, directing, or doing stand-up, White's life is the fulfillment of what now look to be high school prophecies: Most Fun to Be With and Class Clown.

Because he possesses such a range of talents, White has worked with some of the most respected artists in the entertainment industry. He recently scripted The Annoying Houseguest, a new comedy feature for Martin Lawrence, and wrote, produced, and directed Love Anyone?, a short film currently screening at festivals across the United States. He appeared with Eddie Murphy in Coming to America and Harlem Nights and with Spike Lee in Do The Right Thing, Jungle Fever, Mo' Better Blues, and Clockers. White's association with Spike, and his interest in directing, led him to travel with Lee across Africa where he was Spike's Director Trainee on Malcolm X.
A regular on "The Arsenio Hall Show" and a favorite in leading comedy clubs across the country, Steve has stayed closest to home lately to complete feature films. He has co-starred in the independent feature Open Season, written and directed by Robert Wuhl and executive produced by Ron Shelton. He can be seen in Clockers, the Martin-Scorsese-produced, Spike Lee-directed film for Universal. His most recent feature film credits include Columbia Film's Get On The Bus.
White grew up on Long Island, an excellent student, a practical joker and everybody's friend. He was studying accounting at Nassau Community College when an English instructor recognized his gift for comedy. She urged him to try his hand at stand-up at one of the local comedy clubs. Steve wrote only twenty minutes of material for his debut performance, but once he hit the stage his facility for improv took over and he kept the audience laughing for twice as long. White was hooked, and so were his fans -- it wasn't long before he was a regular at Richard M. Dixon's White House Inn on Long Island.
Comedy clubs all over New England began booking him, but his success on the club circuit never lured him away from his studies. After two years, Steve graduated from Nassau and enrolled at Adelphi University. His senior year at Adelphi was tough -- the advanced level course work only became more demanding as his stand-up career was taking off. White working virtually every comedy club on the East Coast and serving as a VJ for one of Long Island's popular video shows, Steve completed his education with a BS in business. Faced with a choice between being an accountant or a full-time comic, Steve put his finance career on hold and decided to pursue stand-up with all his energy.
White's success in clubs and theaters led to multiple television appearances on Fox's "Comedy Strip Live," NBC's "Showtime at the Apollo," MTV's "Half-Hour Comedy Hour," Showtime's "Comedy Club Network," Comedy Central's "Comic Justice," A&E's "Comedy From the Caribbean" and "Evening at the Improv," and HBO's "Def Comedy Jam."
In addition to his film work with Murphy and Lee, Steve went on to land a number of other feature films, including 20th Century Fox's Ford Fairlane and Warner Brothers' Other People's Money. His television work has ranged from NBC's comedy pilot "Just Family," to a guest starring role on "Living Single," a recurring role on "Hanging With Mr. Cooper," a guest host appearance on the legendary "Soul Train," and is now co-host and head writer on the "John Salley Show."
Wild, friendly, and funny, Steve White never fails to charm his audiences. Now, facing more opportunities in more arenas than ever before, he is finding it thrilling, as he says, "to do it all." And as he generates laughs from the stage, from the screen, with his pen, and from behind the camera, his audiences join him in his enthusiasm.
