When Stephen was 10 years old, his father and 2 of his brothers were killed in a plane crash. Stephen and his mother helped each other deal with the pain of their loss. This experience was a major reason that Stephen was drawn to comedy, as he wanted to be able to bring laughter and joy into the lives of others, especially those who were suffering.

He is also a New York Times best-selling author.
