Los Angeles, CA – Steve Treviño, rising comic who has earned the title of “America’s Favorite Husband,” is announcing his once-in-a-lifetime pandemic special, My Life In Quarantine, available for $20, through On Location Live. The special will be available to rent HERE, beginning now through November 11, and a portion of proceeds will be donated to benefit veterans. Click HERE to watch the teaser. The Mexican-American comic, in the vein of Ray Romano and Kevin James, is regularly on the road, touring over 250 shows a year around the world. Treviño is now ready to take to the highway again, with tour dates in Florida, Pennsylvania and his home state of Texas that began October 15. Tickets are available HERE. Full routing available below.
Videos of Treviño’s act have been viewed over 175 million times as of 2020, selling out shows coast to-coast, amassing nearly one million total social media followers and headlining specials for Amazon, NETFLIX, Showtime and more. My Life In Quarantine was shot on September 12, 2020, outdoors, in front of a live, masked and socially-distanced crowd, at world-class production facility Studios at Fischer, in Canyon Lake, Texas, following strict COVID-19 protocols. Treviño takes on the brutal reality of realizing he’s nonessential. He uses his tongue-in-cheek humor when referencing not being able to tour over the last few months, while also finding laughs in all aspects of the “shutdowns”— panic shopping, being home with his wife and best friend Renae (whom he jokingly calls Captain Evil), the etiquette of face masks/hand sanitizing and of course, living and working in your PJ’s. But in this unique time, Treviño’s ability to find humor in the everyday is what we all need to hear and exactly what you find within the special.
Also included in the special is a live taping of Steve Treviño & Captain Evil: The Podcast with some guests. The podcast was announced earlier this year and now has over one million views/streams. Listen/watch HERE.
“I always knew how to be funny, but nowadays, you also need a solid content and touring strategy to work consistently. Although we all know how serious COVID-19 can be, our culture has definitely provided me with lots of material. Now, I can get back to making the money my wife gets to spend, so that I can tell jokes about her spending it, to make more money for her to spend,” says Treviño.
2020 has had a silver lining for the Treviños, as they call 2019 their worst year. Steve tries to find humor in all walks of life. He is genuine, raw and real. With that in mind, the special also touches on Renae’s miscarriage at five months pregnant, the trials and tribulations of a fertility clinic and the blessing of being able to get pregnant with their second child, a yet-to-be-named baby girl, due in December. Though a heavy period in their lives, both Steve and Renae want to share their story.
“With each of my comedy specials, I’ve gotten more personal,” says Treviño. “I wanted to be able to talk about the miscarriage because I felt like it was something a lot of couples have gone through, but no one’s talking about it. To me, some of the best comedy comes from great pain, so it was important for me to find an honest and funny way to share that journey with my audience.”
Truly a family affair, the special also features a short stand-up from their 4-and-a-half-year-old son, Garrett.
Steve is breaking barriers in the comedy world, as well as using his celebrity to help people in need. While being a positive force in the community, he raises money for Helicopters For Heroes, an organization benefitting veterans, something he is very passionate about. These events and shows directly benefit those in need and his fans are helping others with every paid viewing of the new special.
