Book Summary

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.  This book is, in hos own words, the story of "why I did stand-up and why I walked away."

His memoir of his years in stand-up is candid, spectacularly amusing, and beautifully amusing.  Martin illuminates the sacrifice, discipline, and originality that made him an icon and informs his work to this day.  Throughout the text, Martin has placed photographs, many never seen before.  Born Standing Up is a superb testament to the sheer tenacity, focus, and daring of one of the greatest and most iconoclastic comedians of all time.
