It went back to Martin's early life, when he did stand-up. Interesting to see how his life progressed until he gave up stand-up to move forward in his career.
Short and sweet!
I expected it to be more comedic in its narration and in the end, because it was not, gave me a sense of who he really is. A surprising delight.
Wonderful story, beautiful writing and heartfelt telling!! So glad I finally gave it a listen!! I highly recommend it to anyone!
This memoir as Steve refers to it, is so much more. Countless stories both personal and professional. Steve is a one of a kind humorist which is evident by the story of how his live persona came about. This man worked very, very hard to become who he is and his success is not an accident. I loved it.
Father of three with no time to actually read, but also a former history teacher and current attorney with a long commute-I love audiobooks.
ummm....like most audio book listeners, I listened to it only--didnt read the book
It's similar to Rob Lowe's books on life trying to "make it" in show biz
His voice...in some instances he sings or does character voices that only he could do.
No, and if there's a down side that's it...it's an OK story with a few interesting parts....
Steve Martin fans will be disappointed that he basically gets to the point where he went into the movies....and stops. The only film he talks about much is The Jerk....
As a aspiring Comic who looks up to one of the greats it was astounding to hear the story and life of such a prolific man.
This book is so well rounded. You will laugh at his growth in the world and be heartbroken as he details lost loves and Family.
This was a decent book. I wish it was longer, but it's interesting to hear Steve's path to fame, how quickly he got there, and how quickly he wanted to change gears.
I was thinking that this book would be about a "wild and crazy guy", but instead it was about the journey of a young boy as he evolved into the Steve Martin that became so famous. Sometimes painful, sometimes funny, made all the more engrossing because it is read by Steve, himself.
Anyone who loved Steve Martin back in the 70s and 80s, should really enjoy this book.
