A “Jersey Boy” he was born in Newark, raised in Union City ,moved to Marlboro when he was 15.and has lived in Old Bridge, Eatontown, East Windsor and Roosevelt, New Jersey. All of this makes its way into the act along with being a New York Giants fan working on a Philadelphia radio station. Trev’s popular sportstalk show which infuses lots of current events and comedy can be heard on Sportsradio 610 WIP Thursday nights from 11p-2a and Saturday mornings from 1-5a. This schedule allows him the flexibility to perform over 200 comedy shows a year.
“Comedy is the last vestige of Freedom of Speech: says Trevelise. Much of what I say on stage would never fly on the air although there is a great synergy between the two.” If I get a serious thought I take it to radio, a funny one goes to the stage. Many of my radio conversations have been turned into comic bits.”
Along with his Jersey upbringing and sports, Trevelise also touches on television, being Italian, his twin baby boys, and lots of current topicality. “Comedy is where we look the world right in the eye and laugh in it’s face” There’s so much Sarcasm in Trev’s act that he named his company Sarcasm LLC and put on comedy shows in clubs and theatres all over the Delaware Valley. Trev’s act is just like his company slogan. “Comedy for those who get it”
