Steve Martin On His Years As A Comic — And Walking Away From Stand-Up

"But if you could hold Steve Martin has been making people laugh often with highly conceptual humor since the nineteen sixties when he was a staff writer on the smothers brothers comedy hour in the seventies he became a major stand up comedy star filling arenas with his fans he rose to fame along with his then new TV show called Saturday Night Live on which he made many memorable appearances as a wild and crazy guy a medieval barber and a fan of king tut eventually the fame that brought in huge audiences also made it impossible for him to do the kind of comedy that made him original he starred in movies from the jerk to parenthood and in recent years has also written plays essays and books and toured with both his bluegrass band and with friend and fellow comic Martin short Steve Martin won the Mark Twain prize for American humor in two thousand five in was a Kennedy center honoree in two thousand seven Terry gross spoke with Steve Martin in two thousand eight about his memoir born standing up Steve Martin welcome back to fresh AIR eleven returning her thank you I thank you very much I'd like you to open with a reading from the beginning of the book and we've we've edited the slightly to make it crystal a little shorter for the broadcast great be happy to I did stand up comedy for eighteen years ten of those years were spent learning for years were spent refining and for years were spent in wild success I was seeking comic originality and fame fell on me as a by product the course was more plodding than her ROIC I did not strive valiantly against doubters but took incremental steps started with a few intuitive leaps I was not naturally talented I didn't sing dance or act the working around that minor detail made me inventive I was not self destructive though I almost destroyed myself in the end I turned away from stand up with the tired swivel of my head and never looked back until now a few years ago I began researching and recalling the details of this crucial part of my professional life which inevitably touches upon my personal life and was reminded why I did stand up and why I walked away in a sense this book is not an autobiography but a biography because I am writing about someone I used to know yes these events are true yet sometimes they seem to have happened to someone else and I often felt like a curious onlooker or someone trying to remember a dream I ignored my stand up career for twenty five years but now having finished this memoir I view this time with surprising warmth one can have it turns out an affection for the war years thanks for reading that that Steve Martin reading from his memoir born standing up which has just been published in paperback yeah I guess I didn't realize how much you closed the door on your comedy years how much there was like a before and after it ended you were done and that was it right I I I'm it was about nineteen eighty one I still had a few obligations left but I knew that hi I could not continue but I guess I could have continued if I had nothing to go to but I did have something to go to which was movies and you know the act had become so known that in order to go back I would have had to create an entirely new show and I wasn't up to it especially when the opportunity for movies and writing movies came around why would you have to create an entirely new show well like I say the the the act was really it there is a passage in the book which I caught because it was so hard to explain but the act essentially besides all the jokes and bits and everything was conceptual and once the concept was understood there was nothing more to develop it's like saying painting the same blank canvas over and over and over and over and over once the concept is no you don't see the need to see to that and that was in the back of my head that I was really done artistically with with what I had created or pastiche to you know in the reading that you just did you describe yourself as not being naturally talented did you think of yourself as naturally funny I'm I didn't didn't think of myself in that way no although I I just love to comedy I I was raised with laurel and hardy and I Love Lucy Anne and Jerry Lewis and I just loved it and I had a friend in high school and we would just laugh all day and put on skits and you know it's the Andy Kaufman thing over to Marty short thing where you're performing in your bedroom for yourself and I I loved magic and so I would practice my magic tricks in front of a mirror for hours and hours and hours because I was told that you must practice you must practice and never present a trip before it's ready but I was just inclined toward show business but I didn't know what I just like being on stage you got your start working in Disneyland you were living in southern California and when you were ten you were selling guidebooks there then you later work for magic shop demonstrating magic tricks and I get the sense from your memoir that demonstrating those magic tricks you know hours a day and really getting them getting them down because you're doing them so much that that gave you a sense that performance required a great deal of craft that even comedy wasn't just a question of going out on stage and saying funny things that there was enormous amounts of work and practice and thought that would have to go into it well that that idea of that that you really had to work at this stuff didn't necessarily come from Disneyland it I I mean I think yes and in terms of presenting a trick but having having it so well honed in your mind was really giving me a sense of security it was I don't want to go out there half baked and you know you learn that through the years you know you're you do a magic show with a friend and you rehearse it a couple of times and yes every all the timing has to be exactly perfect but while you're out there it's it's a different world it's not your mirror you have to make on the spot adjustments but that's just you know whatever entertainer does actually working at the magic shop really gave me a sense of comedy because it was all the jokes we did the tricks but we have all these jokes I had a friend Jim Barlow who you know he he was the the guy I worked with there but he had patter worked out you know it he would go to customers and say Medicare money I mean help you not and you know call them suckers it was really funny and and kind of friendly rude what was your patter I just took all of Jim's patter I'm I'm trying to think of other ones yeah I said it would just it would somebody would buy something it would say and because you are hundred customer today you get a free paperback it's a little silly things like that but Disneyland I'm fifteen right here at early act was a combination of banjo playing juggling magic tricks and comedy and some of that stating your later at two but it sounds like a vaudeville act yes I was very interested involved it was the only sort of discipline that was a five minute act on stage which is what I really enjoyed ins and saw myself doing and I bought books on it I went to the Long Beach pike which was off the carnival fair you know four is really a place for drunken sailors to get tattoos but there was also side shows is very interested in that but you know there is these are all in there these are short acts there was one of the employees at Disneyland that I worked with was named Steve Stewart and he worked in vaudeville and he did a sack for me one day on the floor of the magic shop and I had a couple of great gags one was that I actually used and I asked him if I could use them because I was very strict about using any material that wasn't mine or that that was taken from somebody else let's put it this way I became strict wasn't strict at first there is one trick that one joke that Dave steward did where he said are not yet a glove white glove in his hand the magicians glove any he said and now the glove into dove trick and he threw it into the air and then it hit the floor and he just looked at it and consent and set up for my next trick he went on and it was the first time I saw comedy created out of nothing of nothing happening and I Glaum don to that wait wait wait you're doing I think is not only making comedy out of nothing but making comedy out of people's expectations which you were going to fail to fulfill well yes exactly and I I really started that when I became a semi professional meaning I was working the local folk music clubs going around either working for free or for a week and I quickly decided that you know the material was you know good or weak or whatever and I decided whatever it was I was going to pretend like it was fantastic and how great am I how great is what you're seeing and I think that's what grizzly hunting it's a tune him too because they couldn't believe that someone actually was that confident

I mean, this guy I thought these two guys we're going to be one of the top tag teams ever in in wrestling. You know, I just thought they really had everything going for him. So speaking of speaking of Bosch, I've only have you ever received a actually received a telegram in your life. No, I never have. I received one in my entire life. I didn't even know they still existed. But when I when I slept IndyCar when I wasn't wasn't the it was when I gave Andy Kaufman. The pile driver in the match in Memphis, you know, so few people. I mean, we know, but we didn't let anybody in on anything that was going on even guys in in our own territory. Here didn't have a clue what was going on with Andy. And I and I when I gave him that piledriver, and he wound up in the Memphis hospital for three days, I got an actual telegram from Paul Bosch. And it actually it said thank you for sticking up for our business. You did a great job and a great thing. And I want to congratulate you, and I just I was blown away. Oh my gosh. Just from this is one of the mainstream promoters in the in the entire country. And he's sending me a telegram about beaten up. Andy kaufman. It was amazing. Yes. Who you know, what along those lines where were you? When the doctor d David Schultz thing happened with John styles, and he slapped the hell out of Johnstown SEL and messed up his eardrums. Remember that? Go hand started right here for David started right here in Tennessee matter of fact, I help train Jerry Jerrod I helped train David. He he started out. He was from in Jackson, Tennessee, seventy miles north of where I'm sitting right now here in Memphis and just a big old raw bone country kid that enough. I mean, just a fun loving guy funniest heck to be around. And he just never took anything serious. But brother he had a short fuse. I mean, he had a temper, and I I don't remember where. But I remember watching I was actually watching that on TV when he would he John stop. So I thought oh my gosh. What is what does he done? I you know, what I thought. Maybe I didn't know that was always like the Indy. Coffin thing. I thought maybe it's a work. But then, you know, it didn't take long to realize that it wasn't and the and the he had slapped him right in the year. And I guess broke John Russell's eardrum and all of this store to stuff. And and I'm and I guess eventually it costs Vince McMahon. A lot of money. But you know, what David she'll that was just the kind of guy. He was. That was that was where the business was so back in. I mean, you know, if anybody ever said it was fake used it out for it. And then John Johnstown,.

I know we've spoken ill of him quite a bit on the show. Right. But you know, it doesn't have a working relationship. We know how to write for his character. We have to respect it to a degree because otherwise we wouldn't enjoy talking about it this month. That's exactly the cable guy a better person. Well, Dan, whatever is probably a better person in general than Mark Walberg would rather have lunch with Dan Whitney than Mark Welby one hundred ten per. So who would you rather have lunch with them? Mark Wahlberg, Larry the cable guy. Oh, definitely Dan with. I've just no, No, no. no, no, no, no. He's in character. He's not dead with it. So it's either Mark Wahlberg person. Scott fun. Yeah. Larry the cable guy the fake person. Obviously, larry. Because I wanna see the masterwork up close imagine being around someone in there.

And I'm like, maybe it wasn't if that worked for you find. But that's the creepiest thing I've ever heard in my life. That's like Alps yoga's, lent them. So anyway, this movie's over it's a cliffhanger it fucking failed at the box office. So I don't know maybe we won't. And if it fails like this, and they don't get a sequel Greenland, and it'll be like now, bro. We always meant to leave it open ended. I feel like it's going to be nNcholas cage. Mild twenty three oh.

Nobody wants fucking Larry miles. Twenty three. Absolutely. It's but he's exactly the same character. He's got the little live strong, raise everything the camera.

I mean, literally, just close your eyes. And imagine the guy from the raid sawn someone's head off of a door of a car door. Yeah. That's kind of it. That was the only like Perko. Oh, you need man. So no this wretched undertaking. Fucking hate this movie. It's like the most cynical movie 'cause the whole point at the end of it, by the way is like well, they kill us. That's just the way.

"She's good, but you liked it. I mean, it was okay. It wasn't bad, Jim, and Andy, the great beyond that documentary about Jim Carey, making the movie man on the moon about Andy Kaufman, which is fascinating and how he basically like inhabited and the coffin so much that he could snap out of it. Well, he basically became him drove everyone crazy for the documentary is fascinating, and I love man on the moon v. scene and on the moon. Yeah, let's see. Oh, I don't feel at home in this world anymore. The movie Elijah Woods in it. That's actually a brilliant movie. And when I was going through this at reminded me of it because it's a movie that kind of came and went on Netflix original. It's really quirky film, but really good. I enjoyed like his quirky movies. Yeah, our to the Maya wit stories as well. That's that film that net flix release and it's with Dustin Hoffman, Ben Stiller Sandler. That's the one last year where Adam Sandler was getting all this Oscar buzz. He's actually very good in the film is okay. But again, it's on that flux. Op draw to see that one. Oh, you never saw Jonah. Oh, that was a huge release last year with a, I'm no, this Winton. Okay. Jake Jilin whole about these big like hippo kind of creatures that basically they, they raise to turn into the best kind of food. But in this little girl, falls in love with this animal protects it, and it's a cool film. It turned a lot of people into vegetarians. Let's see when we first met. So you saw that's the one with Adam LeVine and Alexandria, dairy. So my wife made me watch that that film was super cute. It was. Did you like it you want as big a fan is wife was which one? That's the one the photos, the photos I can I liked it. It was very cute. Relives the same day. It's like Elvis groundhog day type. Yeah, I thought that was really cute. I liked it. The fundamentals of Karen, that's with Paul Rudd. The. I had no idea. This is so good, Selena Gomez in that. The kid likes really watch that because you said it was good. That was so good. That's a really good one. The checkout flicks the fundamentals of caring poll run quite a few of these direct original films to net flicks mute. Did you see mutant that's Duncan Jones, which is David Bowie's son who directed moon and he directed mute, which went straight to net flicks with Alexander Assad, and Paul Rudd is like a back shit, crazy villain. Oh, I heard about this very different role. He's like a bar or something. They're like doctors, but very shady characters. I liked that movie. I actually really enjoyed it again, you know, see, that's the thing critically. It didn't do so well, but Netflix give sees movies a platform where they can breathe and survive exact. Despite what critics say, which is kinda cool that they don't reviews in a way these critics just shit on the movie. So people won't go see us actually and decide for themselves. That's what I like about Netflix. I really do. I agree. Anyway, mute. You should wash it good slice of science fiction, and it's a very jarring different role from pool rug. Mascots which is Christopher guest, but the film was not very good. That's a comedy, a very merry Christmas. Did you see that? It's really all bowled with Bill Murray and all these like cameo guests. It's now like a Christmas tradition for us. We watch every Christmas on that books. Yes, like an original Christmas show from Bill Murray hosting this event for Christmas. It's quite funny. Okay. Okay. And then, of course, talking of Christmas these films which were original films that went to net flix were huge, Christmas prince and Christmas inheritance to the love. Christmas print. Yeah. So my wife inheritance, not so much. So we like both of them. My wife went on a binge on all Christmas movies on net flicks. Those two, she made me watch which I enjoyed remember someone like posted on social media. I think it was net flicks to that one. In person you watched, you know a Christmas prince, fifty times in one day go get a life. You know something I seriously..
