How Well Do You Know Steve Martin?
A list of the most distinct voices in comedy in the past 40 years isn’t complete without Steve Martin. His short-lived stand-up act – which he retired almost as fast as he started it – was his initial introduction to the world, and he’s been one of the few artists to transcend the stand-up/actor barrier to great critical and audience acclaim. Born Standing Up, Martin’s memoir covering his early years working at a Disneyland kiosk hawking magic tricks and entering the changing comedic scene of stand up, is considered by others in the industry to be one of the most insightful and revealing glimpses into the backrooms of nightclubs and onward.
Since his debut, he has since become known as a patron of the arts, a playwright, an essayist, an actor, a novelist, as well as a musician. Every avenue he has explored in his career has only seen success. Like anyone with such a varied career, he’s had his share of failure, though his are easily credited to others as opposed to his own missteps. Martin, for instance, only appeared in films like Cheaper By The Dozen and The Pink Panther, he had nothing to do with their production beyond cashing a paycheck.
