If your sense of humor has anything in common with mine, then you also believe that Steve Martin is a genius. I'm not talking about Cheaper By The Dozen 2: Electric Boogaloo Steve Martin or even Parenthood Steve Martin, although I love that movie. No, my Internet friends, I'm talking about Banjo playing, King Tut singing, cultural phenomenon stand up comedian Steve Martin.
Which is my way of leading into saying that I really enjoyed Steve Martin's memoir of his early life and development as a stand up comedian, BORN STANDING UP. It's a quick read, interesting, funny and ultimately poignant and if you think Steve Martin is a genius, just like I do, I'm betting you'll enjoy it as much as I did.
As an aside, my personal favorite Steve Martin film is LA Story. What's yours?
