Nice Guy Steve Mingolla is, simply put, a nice guy. (Unless, of course, your check bounces.) He has been in the business since 1987, where he started out as a doorman at the world famous Comedy Store in Hollywood, California. Steve's act is a definite burst of New York attitude mixed in with a bit of Southern hospitality. He actually coined the phrase, "How you doin?" back in 1979'. His wacky authenticity, loaded with an arsenal of characters and voices (not to mention a slew of topics), gives his show universal appeal. Though many comedians have become quite successful through the use of explicit language and content, Steve is a clean act, definitely. But, he ain't no saint.
