Bio

Smuggled into Newfoundland at the tender age of 4 by his Bell Island-born parents, in an effort to conceal his true identity, Steve Coombs maintains to this day that he is a “Newfoundlander born and bred and he’ll be one till he dies.”

Since making his stage debut at the 2008 Newfoundland Screech Comedy Festival, Steve has toured with Yuk Yuk’s and entertained audiences from Newfoundland to Toronto. His comedy has been featured nationally on CBC Television, Radio and XM Satellite Radio. Featured as a CBC Gala performer at the 2011 & 2013 St. John's Comedy Festivals, Steve was recently selected to represent Newfoundland in the SiriusXM Top Comic Gala at Toronto's prestigious JFL42 Comedy Festival and awarded an opening spot for Russell Peters on the Canadian Leg of his Almost Famous World Tour. Cited as 'One to Watch' in Downhome magazine’s 'New Faces of Comedy' cover feature, he is rapidly becoming one of Newfoundland’s next best untapped natural resources to benefit mainland Canada.

His witty, nice-guy persona and self-deprecating humor wins over audiences with a solid bundle of jokes, hilarious re-enactments and anecdotes.
