Steve Watson was born and raised in Chattanooga, Tenn., the son of a bar owner and an ultra-cool mom. As a teenager, Steve learned a little something about swinging a hammer. While working part-time doing construction, he learned the tools of the trade that would keep him fed while pursuing a career in entertainment. Later, he started his own remodeling business, focusing on residential home improvement.
Basing himself on the East Coast, Steve worked steadily in the mid '90s. He worked with legendary actor Carroll O' Connor in the CBS drama In the Heat of the Night and starred opposite Emmy Award winner Sharon Gless in the MOW Separated by Murder. Other television credits include To Dance With the White Dog with Jessica Tandy and Hume Cronyn, The Hazel Brannon Story with Jane Seymour, and the TNT Civil War drama Return to Andersonville.
In 1998 Steve relocated to Los Angeles and focused on stand-up comedy. He has performed at all the major comedy clubs including The Improv, The Ice House and The Comedy Store. He also spent four seasons as the host of Discovery Channel's Monster House and currently hosts HGTV's Don't Sweat It.
