Steven Padilla: Founder
Steven doesn’t consider himself a comedian. Instead, he considers himself a comedian entrepreneur. What does that mean? Nobody really knows. Steven felt as if there was a lack of identity in the Houston comedy community. Houston now has an identity, it’s Comedy Scene in Houston. You can find Steven hanging out at Saint Danes every Thursday. He hosts the open mic there.

David Gavri is also infamous for writing comedy interviews. His Gonzo-like approach to journalism intrigues readers from all over, giving his interviews a sense of realism and authenticity. His interviews are not just another read—they are an experience—captured first hand, as they are transcribed to the page.
