Steve Martin's Specials Finally Coming To DVD

Shout! Factory and SOFA Entertainment have announced they are releasing a Steve Martin box set, featuring his acclaimed specials, including: On Location: Steve Martin, Steve Martin: A Wild And Crazy Guy, Steve Martin: Comedy Is Not Pretty, All Commercials…A Steve Martin Special and Steve Martin’s Best Show Ever. On the box set Steve Martin said in a very Steve Martin way, "I am thrilled that so much of my rarely seen shows will be offered to the public. I am told that these television appearances, concerts and bonus material, are among the best work of my career. I am told this by people I pay.” In all seriousness, this is super exciting news as Steve was one of the all-time greats and the audio alone does not do his specials justice. Included as well will be his Oscar nominated short film The Absent-Minded Waiter, which you can watch below. The set comes out on September 18th, making it a perfect gift for… umm… Yom Kippur(?).

    When I was a kid there was a videocassette of Steve Martin's Best Show Ever that me and my friends must have watched a million times. Had some great cameos and a great opening number.
