Lyhyt elämäkerta
Stephen Glenn "Steve" Martin (born August 14, 1945) is an American actor, comedian, writer, playwright, producer, musician and composer.

Martin was born in Waco, Texas, and raised in Southern California, where his early influences were working at Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm and working magic and comedy acts at these and other smaller venues in the area. His ascent to fame picked up when he became a writer for the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour, and later became a frequent guest on The Tonight Show. In the 1970s, Martin performed his offbeat, absurdist comedy routines before packed houses on national tours. Since the 1980s, having branched away from stand-up comedy, he has become a successful actor, playwriter, pianist, banjo player, and juggler, eventually earning Emmy, Grammy, and American Comedy awards.

Recently I’ve become a fan of Steve Martin’s fictional works. I had no idea such a famous comedian was also a fantastic fiction writer. So, I decided to read this memoir with the hopes of getting more insight to who this multitalented actor/author was. I wouldn’t say that’s exactly what I got. This book is very focused on his stand-up, but it is written beautifully and it shows a bit of the man behind the comedy. He is infinitely more interesting than I ever gave him credit for.

Although the parts of the book that were actually related to Steve Martin's life in the movies and as stand-up comic were informative and wonderfully illustrated, the random cartoons at the end were, in my view, simply random and unrelated to a memoir.
