Steve Harvey Shared How His Life Changed In Montreal & The Story Is So Touching (VIDEO)

American game show, talk show and pageant host Steve Harvey shared the inspirational story of his rise from homelessness to fame in a clip posted to Twitter on Wednesday.

The clip, which appears to show Harvey speaking to an audience during the taping of the game show Family Feud, shows him describe how a visit to Montreal and a performance at Just For Laughs changed his life.

"I had been living in my car for three years," Harvey says in the video. "I entered this Just For Laughs comedy festival and I killed, I mean I killed, man. First night up, I had these Canadians f****** screaming."

The show was so successful, in fact, that representatives from ABC approached Harvey after the show with a performance deal, which he accepted.

The ABC reps then handed Harvey a check for $50,000. "F***," he says in the Twitter clip. "I left the festival that afternoon."

Harvey explains that he went on to buy an airplane ticket to Dallas and secure an apartment.

"Don't give up on your dreams!" Harvey captioned the video on Twitter.
