WATCH: Steve Martin’s First Appearance on Johnny Carson – 1974!

Been seeing billboards around town announcing the return of Steve Martin to the stage, with friend and fellow comedian Martin Short.  This made me think about the impact Steve had when he first burst onto the comedy scene in the early 1970’s and the impact he would have on generations of comedians to come.

Found this video of his first appearance with Carson (and guest Sammy Davis, Jr.) in 1974. Do you remember seeing this?
