The home of the Apollo Comedy Club is the Apollo Theater in the Harlem neighbourhood of Upper Manhattan in New York City. It is a music hall and noted venue for African-American performers, and is the home of Showtime at the Apollo, a nationally syndicated television variety show that showcased new talent, from 1987 to 2008, encompassing 1,093 episodes; the show was rebooted in 2018.

The Apollo Comedy Club celebrates the theatre’s rich comedic roots. Presented in partnership with the legendary Bob Sumner (producer of Def Comedy Jam, creator of Laff Mobb on Aspire), the Apollo Comedy Club features the best up-and-coming talent in comedy today. The comedy shows precede the Theater’s weekend music series, Apollo Music Café, extending the Theater’s late-night offerings.

World-renowned comedian and showman, Steve Harvey has his roots and breakthrough at the same venue and he doesn’t shy to share his journey when he was broke and homeless.

According to steveharvey.com, the man says;

In 1991 I was sleeping in my car, I had $35 to my name, everything I had could fit into two bags. I started talking to God about my dreams… Fast forward, out of nowhere I get a call from The Apollo asking me to come on the show. That same night I met D.L. Hughley, and Jamie Foxx for the first time. We were all comedians that went on that night. This is my Apollo story and how I became the host. This was my turnback moment.

Everybody has a turn back moment, it’s the moment you can either go forward or give everything up. There’s one guarantee if you give up it will never happen. Faith is everything, God is always on time, he’s never too late.

Well, this could be the beginning of greater things for this humble Zimbabwean who started off his journey with little to his name.

Congrats mwana wevhu.
