"Which The Muppet Show was the first program. That I ever fell in love with, like I when I was up in up in Massachusetts. Played biddy basketball the Jewish community Center B I, D D. Why believe biddy basketball in a little bit? Anybody basketball and our games? We're on Tuesday night, and that was the same night as the Muppet Show. And I remember being so conflicted because I was a short kid. I wasn't very good at basketball, but my mom so wanted me to pursue that, so I have to go to the games. But but every week and I hate to say this job, but there was no such thing as the VCR yet like VCR's hadn't been invented. Are you sure? 100% 0 man. What a Oh, that's that's tough. I know so late seventies, So this was a explain to me the way this show was presented in real time. It was not Children show this was this was prime time television. It was an adult variety show hosted by the Muppets. The Muppet Theater. Was managed by Scooter who's Uncle ran the place and I guess he would. He turned it all over to Kermit, who was then the master of ceremonies so they would get a special guest. Always an heir. A B list celebrity Steve Martin, Alice Cooper, Like all these big gap every week, every week. It's like every week you would start and Kermit would come out of the O and the Muppet show and he'd go. It's the Muppet Show with our very special guest star, Mr Blood, blah, blah or Miss Blah, blah, blah. Be like Madeline Kahn. Bernadette Peters. Whomever So was it. It was kind of in a way. Was it sketch comedy from that point on 100%? They did. They did pigs in space, which was linked hug throb Nurse Piggy and the other one doctor bank men That might've been Ghostbusters and they were in outer space. It was a soap opera. They had veterinarians hospital with Ralph, which was a general hospital. Except it was all animals. This sounds like something I could really sink my teeth into. You're going to Love The Muppet Show. It was everything. A variety show should be with Muppets Land everything that I love about the Muppets because you know, sometimes, like they did the sequel to the Muppets movie with Jason Siegel and it just I felt like it wasn't true. It wasn't true to who the Muppets are. That's what made that movie so great. There was so much nostalgia and, you know once you wash that all the way, it's just not the same. For me. It's just a movie with them up in the same thing happened with the original Muppet movie the first one very meta, very self aware. And then the second one they did was the Great Muppet Caper, which was more of a movie that had Muppets in them. Yeah, I was I was reading. Ah, might have been a mean or something on Twitter recently. About how what do you make of what we how we're supposed to understand. The Muppet dynamic between brothers to humans seemingly gave birth. To a Muppet and So Rito. Look at Muppets as Variation of ourselves. I mean, if you had to answer that question, I do have to answer questions. You asked it to me. Don't know how to answer that. Because Walter Walter didn't exist in the original Muppet universe. Right? So then, like he came along And, um, he was born. Yeah, and he's Jason Segal's brother, right? Yeah. I mean, that's what I was to believe. But.
Laughter Is The Best Medicine
"So entity parenti. Moment i want to focus on was called laughter and i'm going to read it. Comedian steve. martin reportedly reportedly lasts for five minutes in front of his mirror every morning. Explaining his goal is to jump start. His creativity begin the day on a high note. So just picture that. I care but you but i just wonder how often what does that urban legend and if that's really was from his memoir a believe it but there's gotta be it's that's a lot to ask five minutes of well. Do you think he d he could do it. I mean people meditate for ten minutes a day. I'm sure he can laugh for five minutes. And i think it's all relative right like even people who say they meditate everyday miss days. I think his point is sometimes gotta get yourself worked up to the place where you like. I've been bright. You know you know. I write every morning and lately. I've just been saying Good morning how are you talking to myself. Will i keep doing that. I don't know. But what i'm trying to do is engage myself. Tim totally engaged my thinking so he may do something else to make himself last. You go on to say children. We left hundreds of times a day but as adults we take life so seriously that laughter becomes infrequent it is in our best interest to seek out opportunities for good humor us better inside and out. Laughter is one of the best things we can do to strengthen our immune system decrease pain and keep our mind out of worry mode. Nothing works faster or more dependable to bring us back into balance then laughing enclosing. It's more than just a break from sadness and pain. It's actually a path back to hope. A humorous perspective creates a psychological distance. That can make situations feel less. Threatening and more manageable. Laughter is medicine offsetting the physical and psychological impact of stress and increasing our ability to feel joy. Yes there's the moment. Yeah so. I think the reason you played the Indigo girls was because i used that quote from that song. Exactly right yeah well. It's only life after off. And just because i've played this clip a million times. I'm gonna play two million in one. This is the this is audio of the infant baby laughing at his dog or her dog eating popcorn. I think that would be more productive than in the mere. Like if i feel like that should be in my to do list. Every morning is look at this baby laughing. Yeah yeah that's a way to start the day right. They're not cnn or fox or msnbc. That's the way to start the yes. Yeah i agree. I mean and i think that it It comes from that baby that comes from the gut. That's a good laugh. It's very like solely focused on what's funny in you like. As adults we start to like lose our good laugh laugh becomes more like. Yeah but i got focused here like we are. We don't really like focus in on the thing. That's funny and i think memories are often created around really deep hard laughs like we have stories where we were laughing so hard that we like either felt sick or like we're doubled over and that creates a memory. You know what i mean. I do

"Doing. And what's happening in michigan right now. I mean it feels like a like they're attempting a coup to me sunny. I know everybody doesn't want to hear that. But that's what dictators do when they tried to say. This election isn't real this. This didn't happen. I'm going to change it. So what do you think is happening sunny particularly in michigan and and in georgia. Well i have to agree with you on. That feels very much like what we see in countries where there are dictators. We see these coups. We see these attempts to really over a steel elections. And i think that's what we're seeing here. What's interesting about all the legal cases. You're talking about thirty. Some legal cases none of them have been successful. None of them and in fact it pennsylvania in federal court. The judge said this is this lack election it has evidence it lacks merit. You know they've been sort of tossed out of courtrooms laughed at. They've been dismissed and yet they continue and continue to do it. I think he would need to be successful. President trump in three states. There's just no way that that's going to happen. And it involves just so few votes. That i think you're right. I think what we're seeing is a president attempting to steal an election to turn results and in addition disenfranchise voters of color. That seems to be the playbook and in michigan. What's fascinating is this weekend. And i know we're running out of time but this weekend. There was a meeting with a with some michigan. Legislators and president trump. And i think in an attempt again to stole the certification of michigan votes and then they partied drinking dom perignon in at trump's hotel. What the parents of priority that is happening in the republican party is disgraceful. It is disgraceful. And carl bernstein saying what twenty two people are. Speaking to him. Privately privately means nothing. Privately means nothing because every person is watching this not only in the in this country but around the world. I'll stop talking. Because but i want to mention that. I have a friend. Wesley who lives in japan and he texted me this over the weekend. I don't know whether to laugh or cry. Just got into an argument with my host father. In japan who now believe the election was stolen. Someone has built an entire misinformation campaign to gillette de legitimize the election results in the united states and he attached to his texts tons of messages in japanese in japanese. So this is what's happening. it's being disseminated across the world. Not only here. Yeah it's just despicable this is. I'm sorry this is an attempted coup. This is what dictators do when they want to take a country away from its people. Now you know twenty one people are sitting around saying you know. He's not he's not you know he lost. He lost loss. You all better. Somebody better step up before you suddenly turn around. And they have taken the country and now you have no recourse. You don't have a recourse. Either we fix it now or he's gonna walk away with it because his lies are many and they go farther and father and father and it doesn't matter what we seem to say here because the lies seem to quadruple as soon as we speak than they have to block.

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

While the evenings host and producer Raul Esparza and others accidentally spoke over the music. Trying to make sense of the wayward audio and video feeds own homes What's happening? It's nothing worked? And the whole thing crashed for more than an hour but then the sequences minus the plan live hosting bits started rolling out one sequence after another sent in by a talented friend colleague or admirers of Sondheim. In his work the performances in total ran for the length of an average broadway musical. But we're much better than average as a TV. Show it up close and very personal. These people were singing for the most part in isolation with minimal musical accompaniment and sometimes none at all unless you count the birds and the nearby stream that could be heard as Mandy. Patinkin stood in his spacious backyard and sang a cappella version of less number eight. A song from Sunday in the park with George George is afraid George sees the park. George sees a George to May thing leaving no Nomar just passing through just like the people out strolling on Sunday. George looks around. Georgia's a low Houston George George outgrown. What he can do. George would have liked to see people out strolling Melvin sudden. Most people sang to piano tracks recorded for the occasion. And that austerity only added to the emotional weight the singers ranged from Lin Manuel Miranda and Neil Patrick Harris to Josh Grogan and Kelli O'Hara Victor Garber and Jason Alexander told stories about Sondheim but didn't sing and there were some relative rarities Brian. Stokes Mitchell did a haunting song that had been cut from assassins and forcing singers from two thousand seventeen production of Pacific overtures did a beautiful rendition of someone in a tree. The required them to pretend to look at each other in various quadrants of the screen. Brady bunch style. It was one of the two most ambitiously visual presentations of the evening.

Which could come over me then but I never smoked pot again but I would still get these anxiety attacks for several years Until I finally understood them and that was A big moment when I did research on it and found what they were because for some reason no doctor told me what it was That it was harmless essentially because I thought it was damaging me every time it would happen but I believe it was a nervousness created from my new job at the smothers brothers comedy hours.

Hanks and Alec Baldwin for being a frequent guest host on Saturday night. Live on your first album. Let's get small. You do a bit about the spotlight and before we actually hear the recording of it. I want you to tell us about the first time you did it. Oh I I just had this I I. When I worked at Disneyland. I worked with a woman named Irene. Who was from boxy? Mississippi Missouri Mississippi and She had an expression that she all the time she said well. Excuse me for living. It was just kind of funny and that always stuck in my head so I thought I think I could use something do something with that and and so I told the spotlight operator said whatever I say. Do not change the spot. I am going to ask you to change the spotlight to blue. Do not change it to blue. I had a friend that night up in the next to the booth John McCain whom I still work with recording a banjo album as a matter of fact and I started telling the spotlight operative change the spot and stage. You're telling him this onstage started telling him and at one point. This is the first time ever I ever did it on stage and at one point he was so convinced that I was sincere. He started to reach to change it and Johnson said No. Don't I don't think he wants it anyway? So this is the bit okay. So let's hear it so this is the spotlight bit and This is Steve Martin. And he has a new memoir. Add on stand behind any of these routines forty years later. But go ahead okay. Here's Steve Martin. Mood lighting on this Like to do a thing. Now that's kind of a departure for me. It's going to be more into these a blue spot or something. Nobody back there. That's okay further. Maybe somebody back there okay I guess you figured closing night. You know what that doesn't make any difference kind of pissed off about this because I'm going on all week by now. Have it under control see. This club has been business about five or six years. It was. I actually the Troubadour at first and then it became the boarding house and you know they still have a lot of hippies working here and I can understand the drug thing so they feel that. It's more important to take the dogs to do a good show for I. I'm really up to here with this It's just a matter that you know I am on state and it's my house hunter. You know what I mean and I come out and I'm giving and I'm giving I'm giving keep giving and I guess more than I make a simple possibly have a blue but I guess the lightning groove usually know a little bit more about show business than I do in business a few years and I think I know what works best. Sorry I I get a little cooperation from the backstage ex. That Steve Martin from his first album. Let's get small now. People seem to be with you throughout this. I mean were there already hip to what you were doing The San Francisco because that was a home base for me and I was really stupid in that. It took me a while to figure out. Oh this act doesn't work everywhere. I I was just reading in book before. We started the passage about the Hubbub Club in Winston Salem North Carolina. Which was a members only Bring your own booze. You know Club that I just died just died so badly I was just rereading I remember one night. I was onstage getting no laughs and a guy said to his date. I don't get any of this really loud and I heard inserted. It actually made me laugh because I didn't either I. At that time I was going so badly. But then I would go to San Francisco and Where the audience was younger and more within more stoned and And it would go great. I took me so long to figure out how it's a different type of audience. I shouldn't be playing these other places. They're they're soul killing to me so the boarding house and the troubadour in La. We'll good in the ice house and different clubs around the country when when you started in comedy it was before the Comedy Club era. So you couldn't play the comedy clubs. Were weren't any but there are a lot of like folk music clubs. Did the fact that you had the Banjo in the act. Give clubs the opportunity or the excuse to hire you. Even though you weren't a conventional musician well looking back I. I never thought of that but I think they. The clubs would hire comedians. They were always the opening act Unless they were big names But you know I. I put the Banjo. I put the magic in to fill time because I didn't have enough comedy material and all that just stayed and Looking back I remember. It was Playing Club in Los Angeles called lead betters and some some very funny people were working the clubs to they weren't comedians. They were in folk groups but they were just funny. And I I did my act and I always closed with a magic Section like a five minute magic little mini magic show and my friend came up and said I got a line for you. I said what he says. Oh I know what you're thinking. This is just another Banjo Magic Act and you know I thought of it that way but looking back that. What was the Banjo doing there by? I like to play the Banjo and I can say it filled time and I could get eventually. I worked up bits with it. Our guest is Steve Martin.

Fashion and War in America
"Are currently in the midst of international fashion week. Yes and last week. We talked about the origins of the semi-chaotic relationship between fashion and Hollywood film. But we only got into the nineteen thirties so today. We're moving out of the thirties and into the nineteen forties. Which of course takes US straight into World War Two and on the show? We've talked a lot about fashion and war as it relates to Europe during World War One and World War Two but less so about the relationship fashion and war in America and it's actually incredibly fascinating because throughout the nineteen thirties. America's changing perception of their homegrown talent was reflected in Ariz- leading fashion magazines. Such as Vogue and Harper's bazaar at both of those magazines began to feature American fashion designers more and more throughout the decade. Elizabeth Haase reflected on this transitory period in American fashion in her book. Fashion is spinach which was published in nineteen thirty eight and in it. She writes quote in the late twenties ninety percent of the drawings and photographs. Where the work? A prison couturiers and. She's talking about Vogue and Harper's bazaar and then she says many pages and both magazines are now devoted to close created in America for American Life. The outbreak of World War Two and nineteen thirty nine mark significant shift in the fate of American designers who having continued to operate in the shadow of Paris throughout the nineteen thirties. Were suddenly left to stand all on their own and during the German occupation of Paris from June nineteen forty to August nineteen forty four. Many of the leading French couture houses were forced to close and those that did remain open did so under severely limited operations and some pretty severe restrictions as well right and for those of our listeners. Who might not have heard? April actually did a fantastic interview on stuff. You Mr History class which we featured a couple months ago so check it out if you want to learn more about fashion world war two so for the French fashion industry. This meant that communication with America during World War Two. It meant that one of their most important export markets was almost entirely broken and in one thousand nine hundred one after American designers and manufacturers presented promising fall and spring collections New York Times fashion journalist Virginia Pope well. She declared Murck City to be the fashion center of the world and AIRCON designers may have come into their own during the war but they did so under restriction and regulation beginning in nineteen forty two American fashion designers had to grapple with restrictions imposed by regulation l eighty five which were government imposed sanctions at severely limited. Just what designers could and could not produce the purpose of l. eighty-five was to conserve materials. Needed for the war effort and this included fabrics such as silk cotton wool. Leather Rubber Nylon. So you know pretty much. Every material that you need to make clothing and footwear and the regulations thus restricted just. How much material could be used in the making of new garments so we had campaign such as make-do-and-mend which encouraged people to avoid shopping altogether by mending their old clothes. Something we of course support very much today. L. eighty-five essentially challenge the very nature of the fashion industry itself. As we all know depends on the production of new seasonal clothing styles to stimulate consumerism and as we establish last episode Hollywood films while they were actively complacent and encouraging fashion consumption throughout the nineteen thirties and costume designers like their fashion designer. Counterparts were not exempt from L. Eighty five regulations during the war in an eighteen. Forty four article in the New York Times renowned Hollywood costume designer. Edith head called L. Eighty five quote. The greatest boone ever came to fashion designers in Hollywood so it would appear casts that in the nineteen forties costume designers still considered themselves as fashion designers. And she goes on to say about eighty-five quote. It vanished super luxury and brought us all down to Earth. Today we create sensible styles for women the kind that they can actually wear and she goes on to say how. Well I remember the day when we would swirl Fox skins around the hem of a secretary address or wipe satin uniform on a trained nurse. Now we hold to stark realism and by this time had been the head designer at paramount. For seven years she had taken over for her predecessor. Travis Banton in nineteen thirty seven and head like baton began her career in film working with Howard greer in the nineteen twenties as a costume illustrator before climbing the ranks and indeed head is certainly one of the most prolific and fame designers from the Hollywood golden age. Numerous books have been written about this prolific designer who April has eight Academy Awards for best costume design and wait for it. She has four hundred and forty four credits. On that's intense. She worked for almost sixty years in the film industry so she had an incredible career her first credit it dates to nineteen twenty five and her last film is dead. Men Don't wear plaid with Steve Martin. That released after her death in nineteen eighty two so she died in one thousand nine hundred. One at the age of eighty. Three head is quoted and Margaret Bailey's nineteen eighty-two book those Glorious Glamour Years as saying quote. I do not consider a motion picture costume designer necessarily a fashion creator because we do the script tells us to if we do a period piece then we recreate fashion. That was done before. And if we have a character role we do character close. It is only by the accident of a script that calls for fashion an actress that can wear fashion that some of the beautiful clothes will emerge. I don't consider myself a designer in the sense of fashion designer. I am a motion picture costume designer. So just how did head go from identifying as a fashion designer in Hollywood and the nineteen forties to firmly distinguishing herself as a costume designer by the end of her career? I love this answer. You pro because it actually lies with the advent of yours new-look which is a little unexpected as many of us know nineteen forty seven witnessed this dramatic and sudden change in fashion. Thanks to the unprecedented success of Christiane Yours Premier collection and he introduced dresses with nipped in ways. Those padded hips and full long skirts and they stood in direct contrast to the war regulated fashions of years prior which is why so many people loved them. Unfortunately for the many films released the year that this change took place. The costumes were immediately glaringly out of fashion again. Dino Dior's new look was significant reminder. That though film cost you may be perceived and interpreted as fashion it will never be able to truly contend with the whims and follies of contemporary trends. And Edith. Had designed costumes for eleven films that were released in nineteen forty seven so to say that she was affected is a bit of an understatement. Here and looking on this period for the book. Edith head's Hollywood edith reflected quote. I learned my lesson. The hard way just offered Dior brought out the new look every film I had done in the past few months. Looked like something from the bread lines with each screening. I vowed that I would never get caught by fashion trend again and became a confirmed fence sitter. Although despite her weariness of fashion trends did not keep her designs from apparently sparking them as was the case with address she designed for Elizabeth Taylor and a place in the sun which was a nineteen fifty film in a nineteen seventy-eight article for the American Film Journal. Edith wrote my dress for Elizabeth Taylor and a place in the sun was taken up by manufacturer of debutante Party dresses. Someone at paramount wants counted at a party thirty seven Elizabeth Taylor's dancing. All studio designers have created something that influences fashion. But a good costume designer. Shouldn't try to influence style though. Naturally he hopes to hit upon something that many people will like

"I've just really absolutely pleased to be with you can I start with a question, you probably have gotten a lot. Although I have never asked you this question. I don't think how difficult has it been the confusion between Steve Martin you and the actor comedian how much how much do you have do you get his mail. Well, it depends on how much he's in the news with a movie or so forth at I can recall when I was in the DA's office here tells county, and that's back when Steve Martin was really first on the scene, and when I would get introduced. You know to the jury panel or to the court or whatever more often, not, you know, smiles at breakout among the people in the courtroom just by saying my with slip. Did you feel some pressure to be funny? Well, I tell you what I did one Christmas party. My secretary gave me one of those eras, you know, east or that Aaron is coming out with and so she gave me that is my Christmas gift, and I was going down to the courtroom later that afternoon in one of my colleagues set of a former DA was on the bench and said, I will dare you to go down to that courtroom today with that era in your. And and and even though the judge what's a colleague and probably would have taken it. Well, I chickened out at the very last moment. I think it's probably wise. Youngest young assistant back then I did not want tales told about taking the court lesson seriously. So. As you probably set the scene a little bit for how we know each other. And that was when a few years ago when I was still the US attorney in the southern district of New York, my office joined a lawsuit against the city of New York and the department of corrections with respect to the use of force against adolescence at Rikers island, which is a jail complex that I think is of some notoriety around the country, but it's a jail complex in New York City in his part of the settlement and the consent decree ordered by the court. The court imposed a monitor if you don't mind being called someone who was imposed on someone else. Right. A monitor on Rikers island to make sure that they were going to be meeting. You know, the milestones that they were supposed to be meeting in the improvements and to see if there were ways to bring down. The cycle of violence at Rikers island, which is pretty extreme. In remains a big problem, which will get into later, and then I had the pleasure of meeting you and your team and sitting down every once in a while on a regular basis to talk about how we might make Rikers island better. And how we might think about prison, and you are really one of the people who caused me to think more deeply than I ever had before about what it means to have a humane prison system, and humane jail system. And so before I do anything else, I will wax poetic about your service, which is not something I usually do about guests, but you've spent how many how many decades now on the issue of prisons. I'm in my forty six year working in the prison jail confinement setting. So that's a longtime. You've done it as as a correction officer you've done as a legal officer. You've done it as an outside sort of monitor expert, which is in many ways, thankless work..

And he's really feedings really hurt by maybe unsurprisingly, maybe I screened it out because I had similar experiences with my dad, he didn't write scathing reviews, but he made it clear that he didn't really like why did did he? Yeah. He thought it was embarrassing. And he just didn't like he especially didn't like the laboratory all stuff and the swearing, and he just didn't get it finally got to the point with my dad where he can't or won't keep up with how many programs I've made he used to watch the more. Religiously and give me feedback, and he's always been very supportive, and almost take it as a kind of vote of confidence that he's at the point where he doesn't feel obliged to watch on them. You know? Yeah. Because that's how I feel about his books quite honestly, what keeping up with my dad's books. He comes out with at least one a year. It would be a full-time job. You wouldn't have time to read anything else. If you read. On my dad's, folks. Yeah. Right. God he's he's up above fifty books. He might be more than sixty and not short. Have you ever had a discussion with him about writing and has given you tips like practical tips, he often I have to take it in small doses. Because he loves to give advice, and it's always been his dream that I would be a writer really more than anything more than a TV maker. So he it's almost like the warriors that you take your finger out of the dyke and say, yeah, okay. Don't have you got any advice.

Friends of mine forever we're in towns had lunch, with them on Friday, and I, was saying I said what's the most ridiculous named morning show you've met such came in ridiculous and it was bucket head in Joe What a proud business this is they know about more on entertainment bucket had in jail in the morning But there, was a guy who does he can't hide anymore. So let's say you, wanted to slip into town unnoticed in case you knew a. Prominent individual in town he didn't, wanna say so a guy used to be my, partner on, the, radio it's only time ever that I. I actually had a. Co Bill show Rick rumble very funny dude and he's been in, Norfolk for years he's a good dude, we used to hang out together So somebody said what. Would you what would. You do with rumble in town So here's my question do. I. Reach. Out to him and give him a. Hard time for? Not, contact, yes, yeah, but here's, an even made an effort crazy ex girlfriend no no no. No that's a, but it would, be fun to give them a hard time But it's your, town he should reach out to you is that, the rule that's the rule but you're pass through Harry Harry messed. That up so what. Are you gonna do you're gonna be passive aggressive could be the bigger guy I. Think. He'd. Go after him I think he I. Think he just? Give, it, a, passive, aggressive but, I don't make an effort to stay in touch with them I, heard you in Chicago nickname one of the more, someone that might be friends with you but maybe bucket to him Maybe bucket head could be the in between on this bucket had, said you were in town But yeah dean don't you agree if you don't make if you're not in. Touch with, people not everyone is meant to stay in touch for? All, time where you live it's, I I think the the. Product for him to call you yeah there is a, guy thing and here's the guy, thing I don't need to talk to you. For, thirty years but if I'm in your. Town I. Should call you and. Just a hammer hey just. Want, to be a Facebook message I. Did he did the classic I lost your number Steve yeah that's what I do with me I would definitely do that. With, me making out of it girls would. Wind something. From that they would. Ask but they would want. Something, from that meeting I think women Like you know what I'm saying I, would do it just to get together, girls would say they have an all terrier mode of well. I agree with you but if the if they're, fat or something network no network networking or. If they're fast Well then they wouldn't want, meet, it but in all, likelihood in all likelihood he was busy and may, have just flown in for a day All, of that it is morning bootcamp he's got stuff to do now Here's the thing as. I was thinking this I mean I have occurred I am thinking this I'm sitting at lunch with my friends from New York is. I'm sitting at lunch with my. Friends from New York I realized I can't tell them I just. Spent five days of New York and I. Never call I love it.

"Born standing up steve martin's autobiography now it's as whole life he just focuses on his years as a standup comedian or i should say as a comedian in general because towards the end of the book he talks about how he got into movies and things like that but he covers a span of thirty years in his career now even though he covers alana's book it's amazing that the book is not that long i was actually quite surprised it's also a great book to listen to as an audio book because he narrates the book and in fact a little bit later share with you how you can get this book for free by sorts of the book with his early childhood is upbringing with his parents and really how he came from nothing to become a comedian he served his career i actually as a magician and he just really enjoyed entertainment and he'd light to get a reaction out of the crowd now throughout this book seve actually proclaims that he doesn't think he is that talented that's kinda hard to believe 'cause he's had an incredible successful career knowing and calmly but in films an issue dont'a music plays at bluegrass bannon one grammys for his music but he firmly believes the reason why he's successful is because he's hardworking and then he persevered that he actually just waited it out and one of my favorite lines in the book is the opening line where he talks about the first ten years of your career in anything and as soon as a came across this line of the book i immediately thought about entrepreneurship because it's so true and he talks about your first 10 years is really a struggle and he just figuring things that you're trying to figure out what's going on what kind of entrepreneur you're going to be what kind of business are you gonna run you still learning the ropes and the same thing with comedy you're still trying to figure out how to be funny and how you're going to be uniquely funny as a comedian is his journey no he's try to figure out how can kind of carve out his own each and the same thing goes with business you got to figure out how unit french it yourself and how you're going to be unique as an entrepreneur what kind of unique value are.
