The Wild And Crazy 'Tweets Of Steve Martin'
by NPR Staff
March 15, 2012
After 40 years on the stand-up stage, countless comedy albums and iconic movies, Steve Martin is still finding new ways to make people laugh.
The comedian got on Twitter in 2010, and by now he has attracted nearly 2.5 million followers with his funny and slightly demented tweets.
But Martin has recently gone old-school by collecting some of his funniest tweets — and the best responses from his followers — in a book, The Ten, Make That Nine, Habits of Very Organized People. Make That Ten.: The Tweets of Steve Martin.
Martin came to NPR's studio to talk to Morning Edition host Renee Montagne about the book and to play his banjo in support of an upcoming tour with the bluegrass band, the Steep Canyon Rangers.
