Steven William Upshaw, more commonly known as Crazy Steve, is a mentally disturbed employee of the The Premiere Theatre. He made his first appearance in Season 2 episode Movie Job.


At first, he quits his job (in "Movie Job") and gives it to Josh because of a complaint about a loose cup holder, but returns later in Season 3 as an employee again for unknown reasons. He has lots of strange problems, such as extreme anger issues. It can be assumed in "Really Big Shrimp" because of his father he had a rough childhood. He likes watching Dora the Explorer ("The Storm") and the song "She'll Be Coming 'Round the Mountain" calms him down. He also is never assigned work on Mondays because those are his "bad days," revealed in "Really Big Shrimp". Mindy once hired him to work on Mondays and exclaims "Crazy Steve's gone berserk!". In Merry Christmas, Drake & Josh, it is revealed that he has a wood chipper named Sally and gets angry when people refer to her as "it". He is shown to act normal when he talks to some characters like Audrey. Helen mentions him at the end of the Victorious episode, "Helen Back Again."


  • In the movie, Merry Christmas, Drake & Josh, he drove a DeLorean with a license plate that said CRAZY1 at the Christmas parade. When he drove away in it, the license plate falls off and spins before falling flat on the ground, referencing to the 1985 sci-fi movie Back to the Future.
  • Also, he calls prison "heavy", something that Marty McFly would say a lot in the films.
  • He likes Dora the Explorer.
  • Monday is his "bad day."
  • It is unknown what makes Crazy Steve so angry.

  • He makes a cameo appearance in Sam & Cat episode, "SuperPsycho."
  • The song, "She'll Be Comin' Round the Mountain", calms him down, though no one knows why.
  • He performed the most work when he was tracking down Ick Glockmah in "We're Married?" for many hours.
  • In the 1986-1990 show "ALF" there is a minor character of the same name. Dan Schneider who was born in 1966/ the writers must have watched this series in the episode "Prime Time".
  • Jerry Trainor and Miranda Cosgrove don't interact in Drake and Josh. They rarely have any scenes together.
  • He later reappears on Sam & Cat.
