BORN STANDING UP A Comic’s Life

by | Read by Steve Martin

Biography & Memoir • 4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Listening to comic great Steve Martin read his own “biography” (as he calls it) is a touching and hilarious experience. Known for his philosophical and wacky humor, Martin delivers in a flat “Steve Martin” manner. Listeners will soon be enthralled as this audio presentation has many laugh-out-loud moments. However, if you aren’t familiar with Martin’s style of comedy, you might think he’s bored relating his story. Don’t be fooled! He sounds exactly as he appears on stage and in films—intellectually challenging yet completely huggable. The production features Martin’s banjo licks as incidental music and his stories of his early years, involving Disneyland, girls, Knott’s Berry Farm, girls, early stand-up routines, magic, “The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour,” girls, and “Saturday Night Live.” His thoughts about his family, especially his judgmental father, and his loneliness are heartbreaking.
