Steve Vanderploeg grew up an innocent Dutch boy in the suburbs of Denver. In his early twenties he moved into the city to pursue a bachelors degree, and failed entry level Spanish three times, which inspired him to try stand-up comedy in English. This city quickly welcomed his whacky, bittersweet outlook. His stand-up focuses on the realistic absurdity of what it means to be a millennial, as well how rollerblades are a lot cooler than people give them credit for. Steve runs a highly successful showcase at Chain Reaction Brewing Company, blazing the trail for a dozen other brewery-based showcases around the city.
Steve Vanderploeg has appeared multiple times on the High Plains Comedy Festival, and Crom Comedy Festival, as well as many nationally renowned showcases like Comedians You Should Know, 7 Minutes in Purgatory, Arguments and Grievances, and Too Much Fun! He can also be seen regularly at the world famous Comedy Works, and in the corner of his sectional couch. ¡Que Bueno!
