Steve Martin has been an international star for over thirty years. Here, for the first time, he looks back to the beginning of his career and charmingly evokes the young man he once was. While at university, he worked hard at local clubs, honing his comedy and slowly attracting a following until he was picked up to write for TV.
From here on, Steve Martin became an acclaimed comedian, packing out venues nationwide. Born Standing Up is a funny and riveting chronicle of how Steve Martin became the comedy genius we now know and is also a fascinating portrait of an era.
'One of the best books about comedy and being a comedian ever.' JERRY SEINFELD
