BEAVERCREEK — Comedian Steve Trevino will perform at the Dayton Funny Bone May 9-12. Trevino was born in Gregory-Portland, Texas on the Third Coast and now resides on the West Coast in Hollywood, Calif. living the dream that he has had since childhood — being a stand up comedian. His professional career began in 1998 in Corpus Christi, Texas with Carlos Mencia. Soon after that, Trevino was off to Dallas with star in his eyes. It was there that his first big road tour came about with the Three Amigos Comedy Tour. And then came LA. Since moving to California, Trevino has been on the road headlining Improv Comedy Clubs across the country. When at home you can catch him at the Hollywood Improv, The Comedy Store, John Lovitz Comedy Club & The Laugh Factory to name a few. Trevino was also involved and on screen in Season One of Mind of Mencia. One of Trevino’s biggest gigs was The Doghouse Comedy Jam in San Francisco with names like Carlos Mencia, Dave Attel, Dave Chappelle and Jamie Foxx. Trevino and writer Brian Hartt have teamed up for a sitcom project with producers David Hemelfarb and Vic Kaplan. The script is written and the productions companies are lining up to see Trevino.
