Steve Harvey Breakdown: What Made the Comedian Cry?

by at . Comments

A Steve Harvey birthday celebration turned into an emotional on-air reunion for the comedian last week, as producers surprised the talk show host with a blast from his past.

On January 17, Harvey took a satellite call from Rich Liss, a man who asked if the star still loved him - and who caused Harvey to immediately breakdown on stage.

Turns out, Liss and his wife helped Harvey break into the comedy business, setting up a travel account for him and taking him in, as Harvey explains below.

Watch the tears flow and the feelings be exchanged now:


Steve, I am 72 and you make it worth getting up each day, for your talk show. And I wouldn't miss Family Feud. You are so funny in fact I say you are THE FUNNIEST MAN ON T.V. since Geraldine !!!!!! I laugh so loud when you are on, my sides hurt. I'm sure they can hear me down the street. So keep up the good work . and we love you. I hope this gets to you. Love Doris
