I would, but I would inform the listener that the book is really short.
Well, it's always good when you listen to the actual comedian tell the story of his stand up career!
Yeah, listen to more audio books.
I really wish that this book was twice as long! I enjoyed it so much that I was really frustrated when i finished t so quickly!
This is hands down, by far, the best autobiography that I have ever had the privilege of experiencing. The only way to go on this book is audible so you can hear the story directly from Steve Martin himself. If you're a fan of comedy and looking for something fun, insightful, and entertaining, this is it.
Steve Martin was great in it,
Same title would still work
Excellent, you will not be disappointed
I enjoyed this audio book, and it was lovely having the author perform it himself. With regard to the story, I had hoped for more about Steve Martin's life, but I suppose the title does suggest the fact that it is more about Steve Martin's stand up career than himself.
My goal is to read 52 books in 1 year! I read 33 last year!
I loved how he tells stories, and it was both entertaining and insightful into what a sand-up comedian goes through
This was a great book dont get me wrong but I think I would have liked to here more about his career in film. This covers literally his life "Standing Up" in comedy clubs etc. very funny and perfectly read by the man. If your a Martin fan check it out definetly!
I loved Pure Drivel - - - I love Steve Martin. But, this particular book was impossible for me to listen to. The style of narration (for me) was a problem. It sounds very similar to Pure Drivel, but the here, the subject matter is real life stuff - - I'd prefer to have heard these real life stories in a slightly more natural voice, rather than the absurdist style delivery ((which, once again, and not to belabor the point, let me stress...i loved pure drivel)).
The content itself is really intimate - maybe I'll pick up a hardcopy & read it.
I find that Steve's reading of his own work adds a certain charm and honesty to the writing.
Fantastic listen, I had read the book prior and really enjoyed it, revisiting with the audio book and with his great voice gave it a whole other aspect to the story as a whole, I really enjoyed it. Steve needs to do more audio books!
It was nice to hear about the man Steve Martin, not just the performer. I wish it was longer. It was interesting to hear what it was like breaking into a whole new paradigm of entertainment.
This was my first audio book and far exceeded my expecations. A fascinating tale of Mr. Martins story. If I had one quip, it was the lack of inside detail on his experience with SNL and Hollywood.
The genuine heart
