When Steve Trevino first began working at the Improv Comedy Club of Dallas, TX he immediately began packing house. And by that we mean he used to let people in the club as their doorman. But his years of dedicated door opening eventually paid off when given the chance to become a house emcee and open-mic night regular. It was here that Trevino met Carlos Mencia, who invited Steve to head out on the road and become the opening act for his Three Amigos Comedy Tour. These days, Steve splits his time between headlining comedy clubs across the country, and living in L.A. where he likes to reflect on his Rock 'N Roll personality and lifestyle.
