For more than three decades, editorial cartoonist Steve Kelley has devoted his attention to public officials the way the radiator grille of a tractor-trailer might devote its attention to June bugs. He has delighted readers by consistently consigning office-holders to the single fate they fear most – that of not being taken seriously.
Steve’s editorial cartoons have appeared in Time, Newsweek, US News & World Report, Forbes, Playboy, The Chicago Tribune, USA Today, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times and The Washington Post among others. His work is a regular feature on many news websites, including Townhall and National Public Radio. An honors graduate of Dartmouth College, Steve began his career in 1981 at The San Diego Union-Tribune. Steve’s work has won many awards including six first-place honors from the California Newspaper Publishers Association.
Along with fellow cartoonist Jeff Parker, Steve created and writes the popular daily comic strip Dustin, distributed to 330 newspaper clients by King Features Syndicate.
Not one to sit still, Steve began writing and performing stand-up comedy in 1985. He’s appeared at Harrah’s, The Desert Inn and The Riviera in Las Vegas, Trump Plaza in Atlantic City, and Carnegie Hall in New York City. And Steve is a veteran of seven appearances on The Tonight Show.
