OMGosh. I just saw an old Steve Martin skit on an Old Johnny Cash show on get TV. I was busting a gut. I am so glad it is done! It was about how our bodies were built right. So funny!

I am so glad it was done. My CGM sensor was beginning to get sore! LOL

Also, did you know that Steve Martin is an accomplished banjo player.  He even has his own bluegrass band.  They are all quite professional, including Steve Martin.

Personally, I think he would have made a better musician than comedian.

I just looked up other movie stars that play and came across Robert Downey Jr. who learnt to play violin left handed for the Charlie Chaplin movie, that sounds hard and rather dedicated!...

Yes, I did know about his Bluegrass band. They are actually very good. I was going to get a CD, but didn’t find it at the store. 

The first time I saw him do it, years and years ago, I was very surprised. It is like he becomes someone else. He was very serious about it.

From what I understand, he started out as a musician first, and the comedy career was more of a diversion. So now he is just back where he wanted to be in the first place, being a musician. 😀 I feel like I always knew he played music, too, though, maybe it was being part of the Muppet generation, he did play his banjo on the old Muppet Show at least once, haha.

Actually one of my all time favorite movies.

I sometimes invite friends and family to watch it at Thanksgiving. 😁exactly

@cid and others.  Check out “Great Flydini” on Johnny Carson in 1992 some time on You Tube.

He doesn't actually play anything in The Jerk, but the film is notable for the duo Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee (harmonica, guitar and vocals) and the ukulele playing of Lyle Ritz.

Johnny Carson and Steve Martin! LOL We used to stay up and watch Johnny Carson every weekday night. Now we just watch a specific person’s monologue and turn the TV off. The talks with people are just not interesting or funny. And who, exactly, are the “guests”? I miss Johnny. I miss his interviews with Jimmy Stewart and his cornfield.
