Based in Los Angeles, Brown brings his comedic stylings and hilarious cast of on-air characters to The Steve Harvey Morning Show, which can be heard on nearly 100 stations by nearly 7 million weekly listeners. Celebrating 12 year in syndication in 2017, it’s the #1 syndicated morning show in America and #1 with African American radio listeners.
Brown shared, “I'm cooking up a brand new funny to bring to The Steve Harvey Morning Show while I kick it with the crew, and of course, a couple of your favorites from me. Watch out deh now!”
“I’ve known J since my very first comedy gig outside of Cleveland, and it’s my joy to be reunited with the man who taught me real comedy,” shared Harvey. “Get ready folks – we’re ‘bout to turn the funny meter up 10 notches. Having J join Shirley, Nephew Tommy, Carla, Junior and myself is going to create bend over, stop the car, spit on your computer, spray your drink, gut-busting laugher. We’ve also got lots of new stuff planned, so hang on, this is the best ride in all of radio.”
