Cause I had had enough man I was living in this car for 3 years man I ain’t got no money and I was gonna call my mom and dad and ask them could I come home and just stay in the attic for about 4 months till I find a job. My father told me you can’t come back home. Once you leave my daddy’s house you gotta figure that out. So I knew it was gonna be hard. But they had put an answering machine in the attic for me. And so I was bathing in a hotel in Pensacola Florida and the way I used to bathe was I used to go to hotels that had those bathroom doors that went floor to ceiling, I would go to real fancy like Ritz Carlton’s and stuff like that cause they had linen towels wrapped up in a basket. And I would take a bunch of them in there run hot water on them and I’d take them in the stall and shut the door and I’d take my bag and I’d soap up. Then I would wait till the coast was clear and I’d run out and get a bunch of more rags and soak them up and come out and wipe it off. Then I’d stand there and dry put my clothes back on that’s how I bathe every other day man. And so I was in there one time and they had a convention in town. And when I got all the stuff I soaped up, this convention let out and men was just coming in the bathroom and I couldn’t go out. So I couldn’t get the soap off. So I let the toilet seat down and I’m sitting there man I just started crying. I said man I can’t take this no more. I’m fitting to quit. I’mma go call my daddy and just ask him can I come home and I can’t do this no more. So before I called him, I called the answering machine and I got a message. And it said Steve Harvey this is Chuck Sutton from Showtime at the Apollo. We saw a tape of you if you will come to New York Sunday night, this was a Thursday, come Sunday night, we gonna put you on TV. Showtime at the Apollo. Put me on TV. That was my dream. But I had a problem. I had 25 dollars and I couldn’t get to New York. How was I gonna get to New York with 25 dollars? So I said man I went back in my car and I’m crying again. I said man god, I finally get a shot to get on TV and then I can’t even go. I said how could you do this to me? And I’m 30 something now and I’ve been waiting my whole life and you get me here? So I said man let me call this machine back and just see if he said this Sunday. And I called it back and it said Steve this is Chuck Sutton from Showtime at the Apollo. We saw a tape of you, we have an opening for you Sunday if you can get here give me a call let me know, we’d love to put you on TV. So I got ready to hang up, And I heard *Beep* you have another message. And I punched in the code, and the message says Steve Harvey this is Tom Sobel from the Comedy Caravan. I don’t know where you are now but I have a gig available for you in Jacksonville Florida to pay you 150 dollars Friday night if you can make the gig let me know. I’m in Pensacola. So I call Tom Sobel, He sends me to this gig to make $150 dollars. I go the next night I make $150 dollars but I was so funny the club owner said if you stay the next night I’ll pay you another 150 dollars. I got 300 dollars. I call Tom Chuck Sutton back at the Apollo and said hey man I just got this message. If you still got room for me in New York I’d do it. He said yeah come on. So I went to Eastern Airline bought a round trip ticket for 99 dollars, from Jacksonville Florida to New York, performed on Showtime at the Apollo, wrote the joke that made me famous, Mike Tyson hit this fighter Mitch Green in the eye, and his eye start talking. And I wrote that on the way to New York. Got a standing ovation on the Apollo. I have been on television ever since that night right there. #steveharvey #steveharveystory #steveharvey2019 #steveharveytribute #successstory #steveharveymotivation #steveharveysuccess #ragstoriches #motivation #motivationalvideo #motivationalvideo2019
