Upward Sports Events . . .
Steve's show is filled with hilarious comedy but brings the audience to a point of decision!
If you are looking for a program that is unique, hilarious and entertains the players, leaders, and parents, Steve's five-star Upward reviews will give you the confidence that he is one of the "top" Upward-recommended speakers in the nation.
His show contains super funny characters such as a Tie-Wearing Duck who introduces Steve. He never remembers what he is supposed to say when introducing Steve and tries to be a ventriloquist as well.
Next, a talking Upward basketball, complete with basketball shorts and Chuck Taylors, interrupts because he's sad the season is over. When he and Steve discuss his options of a part-time job, the laughter begins as he tries to nudge his way into Steve's show.
Then Steve's Upward player friend Eddie appears and begins to point out people in the audience he knows - or thinks he knows. The conversation pulls some coaches into the show which causes hilarious streams of laughter and ends up with a coach on stage with Steve for an unforgettable finale.
All this occurs while not losing focus of the evening - that of bringing people to a point of decision that will change their lives.
Steve is a master ventriloquist and comedian who has not lost his first love of sharing the love of Jesus Christ. Thousands of children, teens, and adults have chosen to make a life-changing decision for Christ after hearing Steve's simple Gospel message.

He has also been featured in many Upward training videos and presentations. Steve's passion for Upward goes beyond a job - it's his ministry. He is passionate, polished and professional.
