    Steve Martin writing a memoir

    Steve Martin writing memoir

    Posted 1/11/2007 5:03 PM ET

    By Chris Pizzello, AP
    Martin, 61, started his career in 1967 as a
    writer for The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour.

    NEW YORK (AP) — Steve Martin would like you to know more about his years as a wild and crazy guy.

    The comedian, filmmaker, actor and author is writing a memoir, Born Standing Up, billed by publisher Scribner as "his first work of narrative non-fiction," a "riveting chronicle of his early years as a stand-up comedian and a fascinating portrait of an era."

    Scribner, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, is hoping to have the book out by early 2008, but no publication date has been set.

    Martin, 61, is a Waco, Texas, native who in 1967 began writing for The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour and later worked for other TV shows before becoming a superstar in the 1970s as a stand-up comic, releasing such best-selling albums as Let's Get Small and often serving as host of Saturday Night Live.

    But more importantly, hopefully there'll be some nice untold stories about his Disneyland days.

    I wonder if he'll mention my sister's ex-husband in it? After all, they both went to Garden Grove High School and both graduated in 1963 - sister's ex-husband said he knew Martin casually.

    I'm curious also if he will mention his time at the Disneyland Magic Shop and Knott's Berry Farm at the theater.

    Sounds like a fabulous chapter outline. I'm hoping for some mentions of our wonderful times together, here's a shot from our first glamorous Hollywood lunch meeting. He said we should smile...

    I'm serious. Actually, I was kidding about Terry being mentioned in the memoir - I'm sure he wouldn't be - but they did know each other in H.S.

    I was an extra in one of his films. Didn't seem like a very nice guy. Too bad, I like his older work (Father of the Bride II and before)

    Well, I'll say Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid, but that wouldn't be true.

    It was "The Out-Of-Towners."

    Cool. I guess I was thinking of Burt Lancaster in 'D.M.D.W.P.'....

    Ah, you're not mistaking me for Burt Lancaster are you? Usually it's Louie Anderson or some other big fat ugly guy.

    Still DMDWP is a damn funny flick.

    I would never mistake you for Louie, Harry or Loni Anderson.

    Anyone who knows me knows that I love Steve Martin. He's crazy smart funny sexy delicious. He's totally my dream man. I can't wait to read this. He's not just hilarious, he's insightful and talented. Should be a great book--I've loved his writing so far.
