Without George Wallace There Is No Steve Harvey

George Wallace was a pioneering black stand-up and a source of inspiration for many comics of every color (George Wallace is a close friend of Jerry Seinfled.). Watch this vintage 1970's George Wallace set and check out Steve Harvey talking about the importance of George Wallace in the comedy game. 

"George Wallace..he was the first black headliner that I had ever saw. He's remained a great friend of mine and a constant inspiration. If it wasn't for George Wallace there is no Def Jam...there is no Chris Rock..there is no BET Comic View..there is no me."
