    In the mid-70s, Steve Martin exploded onto the comedy scene. By 1978 he was the biggest concert draw in the history of stand-up. In 1981 he quit forever. Born Standing Up is, in his own words, the story of "why I did stand-up and why I walked away".

    Andrew says: "Fantastic"
    "Good, not great."
    Overall

    Having grown up listening to Steve Martan records, snl appearances, and then the Jerk, I was a huge fan. Steve goes into great detail about his childhood and his interest as an entertainer, how ever I feel like he only skims the surface once his fame was achieved, I would have like to here more stories about SNL, friends and the business ETC. It's like he grew tired of writing the rest of the book.

    Overall

    I've heard most of this before, if anything it was a nice reminder, and good conversational practices.
    There's one line in particular that was good to hear. "Don't try and think of your next line to say, listening to the person will dictate what you'll say next.
