STEVE! (martin) - a documentary in 2 pieces (Apple TV+) - 3/29/24

Steve Martin, ‘The Most Idolized Comedian Ever,’ Focus of Two-Part Documentary

See trailer for STEVE! (martin) a documentary in 2 pieces, arriving on Apple TV+ on March 29

The upcoming fourth season of Only Murders in the Building won’t be the only opportunity to see Steve Martin on the small screen this year, as the beloved comic will be the focus of a two-part documentary debuting on Apple TV+ this month.

The streaming service has shared the first trailer for STEVE! (martin) a documentary in 2 pieces, which examines Martin’s trailblazing rise in the comedy world, his decades as a Hollywood leading man, and his late-career transformation as a bluegrass musician and Only Murders co-star.
“This guy was getting people so happy,” Jerry Seinfeld says of Martin in the preview for the documentary, which debuts March 29. “He’s the most idolized comedian ever.”

Steve Martin is probably my all-time favorite comedian. I’m looking forward to watching this.

We watched both episodes tonight and it was FANTASTIC. So smart to split it the way they did because he really does have two very distinct eras (stand-up and everything else). The archival photos and footage in the first part is incredible. I cannot believe they had that much material to work with from so long ago (though you see in the second one that Steve keeps EVERYTHING - his house is also sick as hell too).

He's been my favorite comedian my whole life and it was so wonderful to learn so much about him. There is also a moment in the second part that made me legit tear up (and he did too) - it's so sweet and moving.

I cannot recommend it enough.

I watched the first episode and I enjoyed it. I'm a bit younger but I remember Orange County as a wasteland of tract houses. I hate going to comedy club shows for exactly the reasons the show illustrates. I used to go to comedy clubs with friends and one guy always heckled. He said it was part of the show. You laugh because your expected to laugh .It was nice to see someone who worked though that.

It's a fantastic documentary. Being a kid when Martin was at the height of his stand-up ascension, he truly was a household name for me. His TV specials were must-watch TV.
This, and the Garry Shandling doc on MAX are a good pairing ...
