Abstract:

Ask anyone you meet on the street (who's wearing bunny ears, an arrow through the head, and is barking at cars) what was the most important event of 1945?--Steve Martin's birth, of course! This informal and affectionate biography tells the complete story of Steve Martin's rise to the top as the king of zany comedy. Here are his early days memorizing every skit on The Red Skelton Hour, summers working in a magic show in Disneyland (where a program misprint billed him, instead of "Youth and Magic" as "Mouth and Magic") and on to the long haul to make it in professional show business. The result is a charming, behind-the-scenes look at the world of show business that gave birth to America's favorite young comedian.--Cover
