Steve (martin) – TRAILER

Steve! (martin trailer - a two part look at the comedian's career

Perhaps modern audiences so used to megastar comics it is difficult to understand just how massive a comedian Steve Martin was back in 1970’s. He was the first comedian to be selling out truly enormous auditorium and even sports stadiums. And it was at his very peak that one night he just quit stand up. It was unheard of back then (Lee Evans has done it since) but he moved into films (many of them hilarious  – The Man with Two Brains, many were hugely successful – Roxanne and several were criminally under rated – All of Me). Taking a look back at his extraordinary  career is the two part documentary as glimpsed in the ‘STEVE (martin)’  trailer.

One of the most beloved and enigmatic figures in entertainment, “STEVE! (martin) is a documentary in 2 pieces” dives into his extraordinary story from two distinct points of view, with companion documentaries that feature never-before-seen footage and raw insights into Steve’s personal and professional trials and triumphs. “Then” chronicles Steve Martin’s early struggles and meteoric rise to revolutionize stand up before walking away at 35. “Now” focuses on the present day, with Steve Martin in the golden years of his career, retracing the transformation that led to happiness in his art and personal life. With contributions from Martin Short, Tina Fey, Jerry Seinfeld, Eric Idle, Diane Keaton, Selena Gomez.

He is something of a modern day polymath – comedian, musician, art collector, magician, author and has even written the screenplay for a thriller about terrorism (take a look at ‘Traitor’ with Don Cheadle if you get the chance).

Hailing from A24 and Tremolo Productions, the two-part documentary is directed and produced by Academy Award® winner Morgan Neville (“20 Feet from Stardom,” “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?”). 

STEVE! (martin) a documentary in 2 pieces” will premiere globally on Apple TV+ on March 29, 2024
