Steve Harvey: "Don't Trip: He Ain't Through with Me Yet"

Last night I happened to catch comedian Steve Harvey and his 2009 comedy routine "Don't Trip, He Ain't Through with Me Yet."  This was a line he used throughout his routine, frequently after making some mean comment about another person.  Many of his jokes were about the Christian struggle -- his own as well as of others.  I laughed at one of his lines, so much so that I copied it down:
"I just ain't that good a Christian yet.  I been workng on them commandments, but I ain't that good at it.  There are ten of them, you know.  I'm good for about six or seven of 'em, but them other three ... I be strugglin' with a lot of them."
He would occasionally include comments to being a Christian, although struggling ... which we all can identify with.   At one point, he told the audience about how he had come from nothing ... that he had been in jail ... that he had even been shot.

At the end of his routine, he proudly announced that he had been "cuss-free" throughout the routine, which given the level of humor these days, is a pretty amazing feat!  How he ended the night, though, was the most stunning.  He talked about all the famous people he has introduced over the years at various award shows.  But, he then talked about the ultimate introduction he would love to make one day:

What an amazing and courageous thing to do in Hollywood!  The audience's reaction is equally amazing.  Go Steve Harvey!!!!
