I’m reading Steve Martin’s “Born Standing Up”

Last night I started perusing Born Standing Up, Steve Martin‘s memoir of life as one of the most successful comedians of the 1970s.

I’ve been wanting this book since it was published in late 2007 so I was excited to find a paperback copy for sale at my local library for just 50 cents. So far, it’s a great read with Steve writing in a decidedly sober tone about his childhood and his strained relationship with his father and how it affected his relationships later in life.

Are you a fan? He’s done so much: stand-up comedy, films, music, books. What’s your favorite Steve Martin moment?
