Born Standing Up

A Comic's Life Born Standing Up: A Comic’s Life by Steve Martin

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
Interesting snippets on the life and development of his style of comedy. I liked reading this with “Kiss Me Like a Stranger” in that he knew people during the same time as Gene Wilder, such as Gilda Radner and the SNL folks. It would probably be worth reading Gilda’s autobio after these two to gain more insight into an era of comedy that predates me.
