In the mid-1970s, Steve Martin exploded onto the comedy scene. By 1978 he was the biggest concert draw in the history of stand-up. In 1981 he quit forever. This book is, in his words, the story of "why I did stand-up and why I walked away." Martin illuminates the sacrifice, discipline and originality that made him an icon and informs his work to this day. Throughout the text, Martin has placed photographs, many never seen before. Born Standing Up is a superb testament to the sheer tenacity, focus and daring of one of the greatest and most iconoclastic comedians of all time.

Paperback, 224 pages. Martin is an Emmy and Grammy Award winner, author of the acclaimed New York Times bestsellers Shopgirl and The Pleasure of My Company and a regular contributor to The New Yorker. He’s always been a writer. His memoir of his years in stand-up is candid, spectacularly amusing and beautifully written.
