'80s funnyman Steve Martin's follow-up to LET'S GET SMALL finds everyone's favorite rubberhead in the coterie of the stars. At this point, Martin was a national phenomenon, having already moved beyond nightclubs into stadiums. His stature was that of a juggernaut rock band. Martin's film debut ("The Jerk") helped to solidify his superstar status, as did the hit single "King Tut" (included here) and his frequent (and brilliantly hilarious) appearances on NBC's SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, where the "wild and crazy guy" moniker originated and stuck.
A WILD AND CRAZY GUY is split between a single San Francisco gig and one of Martin's first stadium extravaganzas before a mob of adoring fans. Martin is at his comedic apotheosis here, meshing surrealism and slapstick into a howlingly funny whole. Among the featured routines are Martin's classic "rubberheads throw fish" bit and his sidesplitting soliloquy about religion and philosophy ("In philosophy, you learn just enough to screw you up for the rest of your life").
