Beschreibung

The Emmy and Grammy Award–winner’s candid, spectacularly amusing memoir of his years in stand-up. Nominated for the 2009 Grammy Award for Best Spoken Word Album!

In the mid-seventies, 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."

At age ten Martin started his career at Disneyland, selling guidebooks in the newly opened theme park. In the decade that followed, he worked in the Disney magic shop and the Bird Cage Theatre at Knott's Berry Farm, performing his first magic/comedy act a dozen times a week. The story of these years, during which he practiced and honed his craft, is moving and revelatory.

Martin illuminates the sacrifice, discipline and originality that made him an icon and informs his work to this day. To be this good, to perform so frequently, was isolating and lonely. It took Martin decades to reconnect with his parents and sister, and he tells that story with great tenderness. Martin also paints a portrait of his times: the era of free love and protests against the war in Vietnam, the heady irreverence of
The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour in the late sixties, and the transformative new voice of
Saturday Night Live in the seventies.

Steve Martin is one of today's most talented performers. He has had huge success as a film actor, with such credits as
Cheaper by the Dozen, Father of the Bride, Roxanne, Parenthood, L.A. Story, and many others. He has won Emmys for his television writing and two Grammys for his comedy albums. In addition to his bestselling novel
The Pleasure of My Company and a collection of comic pieces,
Pure Drivel, he has also written a play,
Picasso at the Lapin Agile. He lives in Los Angeles.
