Steve Martin          

Iconic Actor, Comedian, Author, Playwright & Musician

Steve Martin is one of the most legendary and diversified performers in the entertainment industry today. An actor, comedian, author, playwright, producer, and musician, Martin is an iconic figure whose roles have forever been ingrained into our popular culture.

The Jerk, Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid, Three Amigos!, Roxanne, Planes, Trains & Automobiles, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Parenthood, L.A. Story, Father of the Bride, The Out of Towners, Cheaper by The Dozen, The Pink Panther ... these are but some of the films for which Martin has earned millions of fans worldwide.

He's hosted the Oscars three times and Saturday Night Live more than anyone else. He's won four Grammy awards -- two for comedy and two for his banjo CDs and yet he also keeps busy off-stage, collecting art, playing the banjo and writing.

His first two novellas, Shopgirl, and The Pleasure of My Company, were ranked on bestseller lists around the country including the New York Times. His other books include his autobiography, Born Standing Up, two children's books, The Alphabet from A to Y with Bonus Letter Z! and Late For School; a bestselling collection of comic pieces, Pure Drivel, and his latest adult novel, An Object of Beauty.

A talented playwright as well, Martin's first original play, the comedy-drama Picasso at the Lapin Agile was presented by Chicago's prestigious Steppenwolf Theatre. Following rave reviews, it continues to be mounted in productions worldwide to nationwide critical and audience acclaim. His other plays include WASP, and the dark comedy The Underpants.

The recipient of numerous awards including the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor and the prestigious Kennedy Center Honor, Martin's incredibly wide-ranging and prolific career in standup comedy, film, television, music, books and art have made him one of the most beloved entertainers of our time.

Martin is also a part of a bluegrass duo with Edie Brickell and is a Grammy Award-winner. Their first album, Love Has Come for You, was released in 2013. Their second, So Familiar, was released in October 2015. Martin and Brickell are also the creators of the Broadway musical Bright Star, which opened in March 2016.
