DESCRIPTION: It was I who first discovered comedian Steve Martin. This is absolutely true. In the mid-1970s I stumbled across his performances on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson and Saturday Night Live before any of my friends or acquaintances had ever even heard of him. I loved his silly, anti-comedy style of humor. I had never seen anything like it. In fact, his comedy had a huge influence on me. When every comedian starts out, they emulate someone. When I started, aspiring young comedians at open mics were mostly influenced by Richard Pryor, Robert Klein, Woody Allen, or Steve Martin. I haven't been to an open mic lately, but I'm sure the young comics are now emulating me.
