Johnson in ‘The Jerk’ to the charming and suave George Banks in ‘Father of the Bride.’ Martin’s performances have garnered critical acclaim and a dedicated fan base. Furthermore, his musical aptitude is equally impressive. Few may know he’s an accomplished banjo player, having won multiple Grammy Awards for his bluegrass albums.

His format shows a lot of his dry humor and his comedic personality.
What a pleasure it was to receive a letter from you. Although my schedule is very busy, I decided to take time out to write you a personal reply.
Too often performers lose contact with their audience and begin to take them for granted, but I don’t think that will ever happen to me, will it Jerry? I don’t know when I’ll be appearing close to you but keep that extra bunk made up in case I get to Flint.
P.S. I’ll always cherish that afternoon we spent together in Rio, walking along the beach, looking at rocks.
People see this as sarcasm but this was the comedy that Steve Martin has in his blood. This is funny in so many ways if you only understand dry humor. It is one of the best and most thought celebrity-to-fan mailing. It doesn’t shy away from the reality that celebrities are really swamped with letters and that it would take a lot of their time to reply to every letter a fan has sent them.
