HARVEY STEALING CURRY'S CONTENT

As for what show, Curry was referring to Harvey's NBC talk show "Steve." Curry allegedly found out about the incident through a friend, and it turns out, it was true. 

"Steve stole my material on his show, so I had a beef on that. When he was on his [expletive] talk show that he had, he did all of my Halloween material one Halloween. Somebody called me and said, ‘Homeboy doing your material.’ He did my whole Halloween run, and I know he didn’t think of it. This was true stuff that really happened to me."

A SECOND SHOT AT LIFE

Eighteen percent of his body, including his arm, back, and side, were plagued with burns after a spray starch ruptured and burned his California home. He ended up being put in a medically-induced coma. 

In pain, he committed suicide by overdosing on pain medication. However, thanks to friends like Bill Cosby and Sinbad, he was encouraged to keep on living, and the rest is history. 

Now, with a second chance at life, he is not holding back in trying to right some wrongs, even if that includes calling out famous personalities like Steve Harvey.
