Steve Martin

Teaches Comedy

A comedian walks into a classroom...

One of Steve’s first gigs was at the drive-in movies. When the audience liked a joke, they honked. In this class, Steve shares insights from performing for cars and humans over a 50-year career spanning sold-out arenas and blockbuster films. Learn how to find your voice, gather material, develop an act, and take your comedy to the next level.

Mr. Martin changed comedy forever for me. He was clean, sweet and unique. Feel blessed for this video series and can't wait for for another one!

It's hard to find long form videos where someone really opens up and is willing to help. I enjoyed hearing him speak about how his success is derived from hard work.
