We're revisiting one of our favorite interviews from our archive, with comic
Steve Martin from when his memoir 'Born Standing Up' was released in 2008.
When he started doing comedy in the 1970s, his audiences often didn't know
what to make of him. His material was somewhere between vaudeville and
performance art. As a kid, he sold guide books in Disneyland, and hung out in
magic shops while spending hours working up a magic act. Martin tells us about
his years as a stand up comic—and why he ended that part of his career.

Also, TV critic David Bianculli reviews the recent 90th birthday salute to
Broadway composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim, which is available online. Read more
