Steve Yeich has been professional writer for 27 years. The first thing he ever sold professionally were jokes as a freelance writer to Joan Rivers when she used to guest host for Johnny Carson on the “Tonight Show.” When he heard a joke he had written being performed on late night television he jumped up and angrily shouted, “Hey that’s my joke.” Then he got his composure, realized what had happened and he smiled and said, “Hey, that’s my joke.” (He’s not really that smart, plus he was half asleep anyway.) After that he did freelance writing for numerous comedians who have performed on the Las Vegas Strip including for Jay Leno when he was also guest hosting on the “Tonight Show.”
His other writing credits include working freelance (he’s not real big on working for others , is he?) for advertising agencies where he did various forms of script writing including over a hundred commercials for both radio and TV. He also hosted a weekly radio talk show in the early 90’s for about a year. He did have a job where he was employed (his wife liked it, but he did not) as the head writer for a TV station doing shows about Las Vegas. (Fortunately for him that didn’t last that long…whew!) He has written humor articles that have been published in newspapers and magazines and he has written several screenplays, for one of which an option was sold.
He even tried his hand at stand-up comedy for about a half of a year in the early nineties. While he had his moments he realized that wasn’t for him because, a) he doesn’t like to work at night, and b) he likes to work in his home and since he doesn’t even really like to invite people to his home all that much there was just no way that was going to work out.
He hopes you enjoy his latest endeavour, darnfunnyonline.com , as much as he enjoys writing it for you (and tell your friend too!)
