Steve Harvey
is known for his brash humor and over-the-top personality.

Harvey, who turned 56, got visibly emotional when he realized who the caller was. Watch it below:

Rich Liss and his wife Becky helped Steve financially when he was a struggling comedian 30 years ago.

A grateful Steve said he had been looking for them for years, and promised to fly them out to Chicago for a taping of the show -- for what we can expect will be an emotional reunion.
