Steve Harvey is on his way back to the Apollo stage where he will be hosting the two-hour Showtime at the Apollo special and he says the show’s performances and tributes will stun you. I am already wishing to be there.
In Steve Harvey words “Ah, man, it’s so many great performances, so many tributes, but what made the Apollo famous was amateur night,” Harvey tells ABC Radio. “That’s what made it famous and that’s what we’re going to do is amateur night, it’s that one person. There’s some people that come out there that’s going to stun you with how good they are.”
The same comedian, who have hosted this television show from the year of 1993 to 2000, says the show, which ran for twenty-one seasons and was his first television gig, left a long lasting impression on him sixteen years later.
“It was crazy man because that was my first TV show,” Steve Harvey said. “That was the very first time I was on TV. That stage is crazy because the Apollo is like nothing else.”
Although Steve Harvey admited he’s a fan of the platform that has helped many performers both known and unknown make progress in their careers, he acknowledges that it’s not certain that everyone who performs at the Apollo stage will become a star.
“Everybody don’t make it at the Apollo, I’m sorry. Everybody don’t make it, it’s impossible,” he said.
Showtime at the Apollo hosted by Steve Harvey will kick-off by 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
