Mr. Shaffer continued to perform on network television as a comedian and as an actor with his recurring role on MURPHY BROWN.
Steve has many national commercials to his credit. He was the Jeopardy Coach and the face of that campaign for two years. He continues to perform in comedy clubs, casinos, cruise ships, and corporate events around the country.
