Happy Birthday Steve Martin!

Born August 14, 1945 in Waco, Texas, Steve Martin is an accomplished actor, comedian, playwright, novelist, and Grammy winning banjo player. His narration of the audio versions of his books is just icing on the side-splittingly funny cake. 

While never a cast member, he has hosted Saturday Night Live more than anyone else. His early writing credits include writing for The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour.

Happy Birthday Steve! Just love to watch the "highlights" of SNL and remembering the King Tut song/dance he did. Also one of my most favorite and most quoted around my house movie is the "Jerk". My family and I must have watched that a million times. One of the true great comedy geniuses of our time!


He is an amazing actor. I just watched Three Amigos last night. I think he would be a great person to have dinner with! He's got to be smart to be as funny as he is. He seems calm and quiet, unlike other stars or comedians too. He's goofy, lovable, and wicked talented!
