Better off without him.
Steve Carlsberg1 is a resident of Night Vale. Cecil Palmer considers Steve to be just about the worst guy there is.
Cecil has to put up with Steve both professionally and personally. Steve is a member of the Night Vale PTA, he takes a lot of interest in politics and current events, he’s implied Cecil is his stepbrother,2 and he is stepfather to Cecil’s niece, Janice.23 Steve’s one good quality is his devotion to Janice, and that’s why sometimes, just sometimes, Cecil can find it in his heart to tolerate him.
