Steve Harvey might be best known for his hosting gig on “Family Feud,” and more recently, his ABC show "Judge Steve Harvey," but the tv personality started off on the stage.


He recently opened up about the world of standup comedy and shared that there's "no way" he could "maintain" his image as a comedian.

Harvey told reporters,

“If I had tried to continue as a stand-up, there’s no way I could maintain it. Political correctness has killed comedy. Every joke you tell now, it hurts somebody’s feelings. But what people don’t understand about comedians is that a joke has to be about something. It has to be about somebody. We can’t write jokes about puppies all the time. The joke can’t be about bushes all the time. Some of these jokes will have to be about people, because that’s the most interesting topic. So if I come back, I’ll have to wait until I’m done. And I’m not done. I want to do one more. I’ll probably have to call it ‘This Is It".

Dave Chapelle who has created and dealt with a lot of controversy in recent years for his jokes in his Netflix specials, has been able to stick with his comedy because, according to Harvey, he is "not sponsor-driven."

"We’re in the cancel culture now," he said. "No stand-up that is sponsor-driven can say anything he wants to. Chris Rock can’t. Kevin Hart can’t. Cedric the Entertainer can’t... The only person that can say what they want to say on stage is Dave Chappelle because he’s not sponsor-driven. He’s subscription-driven"
