Steve Martin Joins MasterClass to Teach Comedy

Today we announced that actor and comedy legend Steve Martin will offer his first ever online class exclusively with MasterClass.

Considered one of the greatest standup comedians of all time, Martin is also an actor, writer, producer and musician. He broke out into the comedy business in the 60’s as a writer for “The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour,” and later as a frequent guest on “The Tonight Show.” Since the 80’s, Martin branched off from the comedy realm becoming a successful actor, author, playwright, and banjo player who has earned Emmy, Grammy and American Comedy awards among others. In 2004, Comedy Central ranked Martin at 6th place in a list of the 100 greatest stand-up comics. He was awarded an Honorary Academy Award at the Academy’s 5th Annual Governors Awards in 2013. Martin holds the 2nd highest record for the most times guest hosting “Saturday Night Live,” 2nd only to Alec Baldwin.

In his first-ever MasterClass, Steve Martin will share insights from his 50-year career spanning sold-out arenas and blockbuster films. Students will gain access to the mind of a comedy genius and learn how to find their voice, gather material, develop an act, and take their writing to the next level.
“I’m so honored to be invited into your home, phone, or wearable.” said Steve Martin.
