Steve Mckenna is one of the best friends you could possibly have, according to his best friend and host of "Three Sheets" Zane Lamprey, but when he gets to drinking he becomes a whole different guy. Currently Steve is on tour with Zane on his "Drinking Made Easy Tour." As Zane will tell you, he's not much of a comedian, but he can drink. And that's what people want to see from him anyway. He's very hairy and has been growing out a beard for several months. It's scary. On the show, and on the tour, Steve's main job is to participate in eating challenges (think Man Vs. Food).

He has acquired not only a full passport, but a wealth of knowledge about world drinking customs. He's enjoyed the finest Champagnes, oldest Scotches, and most expensive Sakes. He has downed booze strong enough to degrease an engine, danced with the green fairy (Absinthe), and bathed in a tub of beer. Lamprey not only knows how to drink, he also knows a lot about what he's drinking.
