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".

Eloquent, articulate, interesting, and hilarious...Steve Martin never ceases to amaze. This is something I will listen to again and again!
