  1. I just learned about this in Steve Martin’s wonderful book Born Standing Up. I listened to the audiobook with Martin’s fun delivery, banjo playing and all. He had a complicated relationship with his father. In this negative SNL review, Martin thought his dad wrote it to show his friends he didn’t agree with SNL, later saying SNL was the worst. His dad was obviously very wrong. I whole heartedly recommend the book, especially if you’re a comedy nerd.
