Steve Martin Returns to Stand-Up After 35-Year Hiatus for Guest Appearance with Jerry Seinfeld
Thursday night, the audience at New York’s Beacon Theatre was treated to a rare dose of stand-up comedy from iconic comedian, Steve Martin.
The elusive 70-year-old funnyman hadn’t taken to the stage to perform jokes since 1981, at the height of his career.
This stint on stage took place after Martin’s recent interview with Seinfeld on the former sitcom star’s web series, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
Kicking off the 10-minute set, Martin joked with the audience, “I’m here tonight because of that old showbiz saying: Never lose a bet to Jerry.”
In addition to cracking jokes on stage, Martin pulled out his banjo to perform for the crowd.
