Trivia

  • Contrary to popular belief, Steve Martin has never been a regular cast member on NBC's Saturday Night Live. He does however hold the record for guest appearances on the show.
  • Steve Martin is a highly accomplished banjo player in addition to his career as a comedian. He has in fact won three Grammys for his performances with the banjo; one for Best Country Instrumental Performance in "Foggy Mountain Breakdown," in 2001, one for Best Bluegrass Album, "The Crow: New Songs for the 5-String Banjo" in 2009, and one for Best American Roots Song for "Love Has Come For You" in 2012.

Quotes

  • "Chaos in the midst of chaos isn't funny, but chaos in the midst of order is."
  • "I loved to make people laugh in high school, and then I found I loved being on stage in front of people. I'm sure that's some kind of ego trip or a way to overcome shyness. I was very kind of shy and reserved, so there's a way to be on stage and be performing and balance your life out."
  • "I've always believed that there are funny people everywhere, but they're just not comedians. In fact, some of my best comedic inspirations were not professional entertainers."
