Reviewer Rating:


"Born Standing Up: A Comic's Life" follows the life and career of comedian/magician/actor/singer Steve Martin. I chose to listen to the audio book format as it was read by Steve Martin himself. Steve starts at the very beginning, diving into him home life with his Father whom was always referred to as Glenn, his loving mother, and his sister. He explains how his first love was magic and how at the young age of 8 he began working at Disney Land if only to fund his love for magic and to get an inside look. The book follows his struggles with connecting with his family or really people in general. The ups and downs of being a magician/singer/comedian in the 60's, 70's and 80's. I have not read the book but can suggest the audio book as it is read by Steve Martin.
