Who is Steve Martin?

Stephen Glenn "Steve" Martin is an American actor, comedian, musician, author, screenwriter and film producer.

Martin came to public notice as a writer for the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour, and later became a frequent guest on The Tonight Show. In the 1970s, Martin performed his offbeat, absurdist comedy routines before packed houses on national tours. In 2004, Comedy Central ranked Martin at sixth place in a list of the 100 greatest stand-up comics.

Since the 1980s, having branched away from stand-up comedy, Martin has become a successful actor, as well as an author, playwright, pianist and banjo player, eventually earning Emmy, Grammy and American Comedy awards, among other honors.

Martin was awarded an honorary Oscar at the Academy’s 5th Annual Governors Awards in November 2013.
