Stephen Glenn "Steve"Martin (born August 14, 1945) is an American comedian, author, and musician, who first became famous as a writer for ''The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour'' and as a frequent guest on ''TheTonightShow''. After appearing on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' as a guest host, he [[ColbertBump quickly became]] (and still is) one of the most popular comedians in the United States. Since the 1980's, he has focused more on acting than stand-up comedy. Martin is also well known as an accomplished banjo player and would often play the instrument during stand-up comedy shows in the 1970's. He has released two albums of bluegrass music: 2009's ''The Crow: New Songs for the 5 String Banjo'' (for which he won a Grammy for Best Bluegrass Album) and 2011's ''Rare Bird Alert''. He has recently returned to touring, but instead of stand-up comedy, it's with the bluegrass band The Steep Canyon Rangers.
