Steve Schirripa was born in Brooklyn, NY – a city noted more for the “mob” stereotype. But stereotypes, like a wise guy’s alibi, can be misleading. A series regular on David Chase’s acclaimed HBO drama The Sopranos, the Brooklyn College graduate’s acting odyssey began while working at a hotel on the Las Vegas strip.
Once the entertainment director of The Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas, Steve worked with such comedians as Drew Carey, Kevin Pollack and Bruce Baum. His cameo roles in their comedy specials led to episodic work on the big and small screen, with Steve continually appearing in more productions. This eventually led to Schirripa’s acting break in Martin Scorsese’s Casino.
