Steve Comisar News Room Archive and Profile

Born December 30, 1961, Steve Comisar grew up in Beverly Hills, California and became an actor at a young age, appearing in numerous TV shows and commercials. One of his first acting jobs was with Valerie Bertinelli in the TV Movie "The Seduction of Gina" (1984) (TV).

Steve went on to play such roles as Walter the waiter in the action adventure film, "Fists of Iron" (1995). In the 90's Steve became famous as the golden-tongued con artist who mesmerized wealthy investors into handing over an estimated $30 million dollars, most of which was spent on fast living, faster women and high stakes gambling.

The FBI placed him in the top ten con men of all time. After a brief stint in Club-Fed, Steve reinvented himself as Brett Champion and parlayed his con man celebrity brand into dozens of guest appearances on TV talk shows and news magazine programs.

Steve wrote the best selling book, "Americas Guide to Fraud Prevention," and starred in several TV specials on fraud, scams and con artists. His gripping TLC special, "Grifters, Scam Artists and Flim Flam Men," went on to receive high critical acclaim. Cementing himself as America's foremost authority on fraud, Steve starred in "Making Crime Pay," a documentary used to train several government agencies including the FBI, CIA, and Secret Service.

As a crowning achievement, Steve became the on camera fraud prevention expert on several top-rated TV shows such as "Dateline NBC" (1992) and "The View."

In 2002, after signing with the legendary talent agent Barry Freed, Steve dedicated his full time efforts to movie acting, landing a co-starring role in the motion picture "Tough Luck" (2003) with Armand Assante, Norman Reedus and Dagmara Dominczyk. Steve's promising acting career was put on hiatus by another unscheduled trip to federal prison where he currently awaits release to once again explode onto the Hollywood movie scene as a force to be reckoned with.

Steve is presently negotiating the sale of movie rights to his fascinating life story. A book deal, documentary film and a reality TV series are also on the table. Steve's motto is: "Reach for the stars and have no regrets."
