Interesting time for comedy.
22 August 2000 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

See what Steve Martin did back when he was funny and didn't take himself so seriously. Amazing to see that he went on for an hour doing just silly stuff. Don't think many people nowadays would think putting on a trick arrow or bunny ears would be funny, but back in the 1970's nobody had even considered it. The short film is very funny and the "homage" is kind of interesting, especially seeing Letterman before he was a star and wearing cheap clothes. In any case, it's very dated material now, and I know the routine by heart but still fun to watch. I guess Steve knew what he was doing by changing his "look" and his comedy. Still, wouldn't mind seeing him pick up a banjo again and do "Ramblin Man." This was a interesting time for comedy, a time when comedians were never "big" but Steve MArtin was one of the first, if not the first, to be doing Stadium Shows. An 8 of 10. B-.
