I've been on a bit of a Steve Martin kick since seeing him at the Palace Theater a few weeks back. It has caused me to pull out his stand up comedy cd's and old SNL skits on Youtube. There are so many funny people out there, but I think Steve Martin is my favorite comedian. I think the biggest reason is that he is simply ridiculous. Really, he's just plain silly. And I love silly! I just found this footage from 1968 on the Dating Game when he was a writer for the Smothers Brothers.
