steve martin was actually never funny
Martin Short is more funny than him
Martin Short is fucking hilarious. Its actually sad that he's had to spend his career hitching his wagon to hacks
I personally feel his comedy comes up a little short.
I knew that. Why wouldn't I know that? Of course I know that.
Peak zoomer retardation
im 35. steve martin was never funny. nobody ever speaks of his films today for a reason.
His stand up is great
not funny. excellent banjo player though
Then you are too young. You never saw Steve Martin in his peak
>nobody ever speaks about THE thanksgiving kino, planes trains and automobiles
sure thing zoomer, tell me again how you're actually "35"
Not him but I've never heard of Planes Trains and Automobiles being played on Thanksgiving. Don't people usually watch the football game that day? I don't but if the Cowboys played against the Redskins every year that'd be kino.
But where I'm from, and I don't know when, how, or why, but most of my family and the people I know from my town watched the original Star Wars trilogy every year on Thanksgiving. I'm guessing it was a way to pass time before Thanksgiving dinner with the family and it was a fun enough movie for all ages. If I recall one year when Spike TV was still a thing they had Star Wars on all day, but I don't know if that's a coincidence or it's a big thing everywhere
It's not Redskins anymore, it's Commanders!
i heard they were going to change it back now that the homosexual obama is gone
I didn't take it seriously when UND changed the Fighting Sioux name, so I'm not taking this other shit seriously either.
Dr. Hfuhruhurr will be here to see you soon, anon.
The Man with Two Brains and Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid are excellent.
t. also 35
Yeah I've never understood how he became a comedy icon when he's never actually had any funny and good performances.
I like Planes, Trains and Automobiles, it's a really comfy movie but he wasn't funny in it.
I don't think Steve Martin is capable of fiercely doing anything.
i did some actual research a few years ago and i found out that the reason people think steve martin is funny is because they mix him up with that other white haired comedian who was actually really funny
Nielsen was funny because he wasn't a comedian (initially) he was a serious dramatic actor and ZAZ made him say ridiculous shit with a serious face.
This is how kino is discovered.
I wish more directors would make actors do shit out of there typecast characters and comfort zones
The Jerk was funny
The Jerk is one the best comedies ever made
bring us some FRESH wine is a great joke
Planes, trains and automobiles was good. Sgt Bilko was good. Those are the only two I can think of. Pink panther was shit
PTA is the worst SNL-actor movie by far, I fucking hated it
Steve Martin is great but this is the final redpill, you know you've reached Gnosis when you recognize Martin Short as the king (second to John Candy PBUH)
He is an excellent straight man in that movie. John Candy would be less effective without Steve Martin.
How did George Carlin and Bill Hicks become comedy icons? These thing are impossible to understand now. I think you had to be there to get it, because I wasn't there and I don't get it.
yeah if you have zero knowledge of those things and no context either, it can be hard to piece together. How do you connect knowing-nothing to knowing-nothing? Guess you had to be there.
Carlin was a comic who got famous on the TV circuit before he had any real identity, and he began to get really crass and acerbic when he had tax problems in the 1970s, which kind of set the tone for the rest of his career. But he was already really famous by then--everyone had already heard the dirty words you can't say on television.
hicks seems OK but at the end of the day it's an impenetrable layer of smugness meeting pop tragedy meeting the most outwardly self-serious stand up of the era, maybe of all time. carlin though--who doesn't get carlin.
First of all Steve Martin is a musician with multiple gold records first and comedian second.
What are you a jerk or something?
>i was born a poor black child
No American comedy is funny.
You wouldn't get it.
You had to be geeked out of your mind on cocaine, pills and booze.
That was peak comedy.
true. It's about time someone said it. Except one appearance on Carson when he pulled out his diary and was looking back on his notes from past appearances. That was kinda funny.
Honey I shrunk the Kids was funny
That movie had nothing to do with steve martin though
Go and tell us how Will Ferrell is the Greatest Comedian who ever lived
This. Steve Martin is literally just a really really budget wanna be Leslie Nielsen
Leslie as a comedy actor came way after Steve Martin was famous. Les was mainly a straight man character actor until Airplane and then didn't really get typecast as that until Naked Gun in the late 80s.
this. also I'd go as far to say that Jim Carrey was never funny as well. All his bits are just doing le funny faces and le funny walks.
adam sandler ultra mogs him
Sandler isn't funny, on purpose anyway
If the competition is to see who's the unfunniest person? Sure. Adam Sandler mogs everyone who ever lived.
Bait or homosexuality.
>. All his bits are just doing le funny faces and le funny walks.
glad you admit they are funny
Ace Ventura'a pretty funny though
>no one was ever funny
>nothing was ever good
Cinemaphile is truly homosexual shit
take that back you unfunny homosexual
bowfinger was great
THAT MAN HATES THESE CANS!
He did a bit on Letterman where they pretended he was going serious and guest hosting 80 minutes that season, so they casually ran the new intro, and when it got to him he choked and spazzed out and shouted "VAGINA!!!!".
Also, All of Me is pretty good. When the good girl turns out to be a bad girl, and the woman controlling his body is so disgusted by the fact she starts spanking the girl, and the girl gets even more into it is perfect comedic escalation.
Also the "Couple of Boobs" payoff in The Jerk is probably one of the best scene payoffs of a visual cue in cinema history.
I read his autobiography years ago and he's hyper intellectual about everything, and his performance base was in doing magic. So his stuff always has a solid conceptual underpinning, but he understood that "going crazy" is where the audience emotionally locks in to humor, not the clever stuff under the hood. He gigged hard as a young guy, mostly singing funny songs and over time learned this lesson. The audiences in the small shops and clubs would only pay attention when he "broke the script". Same thing Beck did when he went from a folksy hipster singer to doing stuff like Beercan. The nonsense stream of consciousness broke the audience's expectations. Bill Baily in the UK (the balding guy from Black Books) tells of a similar situation too. Music guys are for background. Crazy guys get people's attention. Billy Connolly was exactly the same too. Hardcore folk guy til his between-songs banter took over his act. There's even one recorded live show where he finally gives up the folk interludes. The camera catches it, and you can see him deciding that the songs are done with, just before he goes on a giant rant final joke.
When you get big (and if you want to get or stay big), the small subtle stuff that requires quiet and patience from the audience goes out the window and you have to kill yourself going big on stage like Robin Williams.
King Tut is that "big" zeitgeist thing.
>steve martin was actually never funny
man watches shakespeares hamlet for the first time
at the end his partner says to him, "so what did you think?"
man says: "eh, its been done"
>he compares Steve Martin to Shakespeare
Funniest thing about Steve Martin that I've ever heard, read or seen.
I think it's hilarious and I'm a zoomer born 96
when did there reach a point when young people just stopped getting older things, watching older things or understanding and learning about older things. i feel like i'm part of the last generation interested in the past.
Wow you're so cool and unique. Have ever thought about sucking your own penis?
That anon is right, your response shows that your mind, like those of your peers, has stopped developing in some proto-human ape stage concerned only with flinging feces and playing with your own genitals. I assume this is not dissimilar to what Alaric found when he marched into Rome, creatures whose ancestors had been human now living like animals in what had once been a civilization.
Anon makes a valid observation about society and you decide the best comeback is to be a fucking retard? You sure showed them, I guess.
Literally no respect
That was a pretty annoying month on this board . Let’s not do it again
But I miss 2011
>actual article is about millennials
can you guys read?
Boomers don't know what gen Z is. Everyone born after 1980 is a millennial to them.
zoomers became turbo millenials 2.0
it's their biggest failing
When people complain about "muh sensitive millennials", they always mean zoomers and maybe the absolute youngest millennials.
holy cope batman
"millenials" was always just colloquial for "young people". Old people still say it to mean "young people" even though some Millenials are now in their 40s
millennials will larp as zoomers or boomers when it's convenient
I'm a boomer
I'm a zoomer
I'm a midnight coomer
everyone under 35 is a zoomer to me
I can't believe people actually paid to see him perform that song.
one off from sexts
>you can be culturally insensitive to a culture that ended millenia ago
Zoomers are gay
I was in a local healthy/expensive type supermarket here in College Station, Texas(we have a lot of those) and I'm in line to buy some ham at the deli there. The lady asked me what kind, and I said "I have no fucking idea what different kinds of ham there are lady" ENTIRELY to loudly and the guy behind me in line I hadn't noticed burst the hell up laughing.
I turn around. Steve Martin.
He kinda half leans around me and says "Honey glazed!" to the lady over the counter and I just kinda stare at him for a sec then smile and say thanks. I'm about to pay for it and he says "No way this one's on me" and pays the check for it right there. I was astounded, it was so awesome that I did the only thing I could think of ... The Three Amigos salute. Once again he cracks up and asked me if I had any idea how long it had been since someone did that. I said "a year?" he said "try ten".
We ended up having coffee at a place across the street. Turns out he bought a house in Monticeto, a really expensive residensial area in SB, and has been living there a while. We talked about everything that wasn't his career for about 45 minutes before he had to take off because his deli stuff was gonna go bad. I shook his hand and said he made my year today. He smiled and beat my head in with a tire iron. I looked up from the floor, my eyes covered in my own blood as I made out a blury image of an anvil being hoisted above his head. Through the ringing in my ears I couldn't hear his probably witty parting line before the anvil came crashing down, ending my life.
Paying for lunchmeat right at the counter is what tipped me off
Millennial here, i legit didn't get it and always thought his ''''''dancing''''''' was pure cringe. So i can confirm he is correct.
t. born in late 80s
Why do autists feel so much pride from finding things unfunny?
They think girls in anime eating lots of sandwiches and cakes etc as the heighy of humor
he's right, millennials and zoomers think 5 second clips on tiktok and instagram are hilarious for some reason
You can't be a late 90's zoomer and think Cheaper by the Dozen isn't ultimate comfy kino
>This made boomers piss and shit their pants
the gag about the singing bush is hilarious
For me its
it's pretty good, some good gags in there
"I'll shoot you so full of lead you can use your dick for a pencil!"
That's a picture of Martin Scorcese
Absolutely based, behead all millenials, a generation that symbolises the biggest mistakes in human history.
I like how for zoomers, everyone older than them is a boomer, and for boomers, everyone younger than them is a millennial
why do boomers still shit on millennials as the dumb young retards, we've moved onto zoomers now
Is there any actual proof that zoomers or millennials are disliking the sketch
I'm believing it's sock puppet accounts from entertainment journalists until proven otherwise
According to wikipedia, some college fags in Portland were whining about it in 2017, so those were definitely zoomers.
>mfw these people don't understand future generations will look the same way on THEIR nonsense
Wait until future generations take a look at what passes for humor with millennials and zoomers. That's gonna be some funny shit.
tutboomers, we won
>steve martin a little too smart and obscure for 90% of this board
disappointing as always but still shocking. you idiots still got it
steve martin got claire danes to go nude before she hit the wall (shop girl) and for that we are externally grateful.
Thats ridiculous. I would never switch to Samsung
> why is the cork on the fork?
>May I take your trident, sir?
this movie is actually great. steve martin isnt the funniest thing in it though. michael caine was much a funnier dead pan
the wheelchair scenes were hilarious
he should apologize for his car
>Kino zoomers can't understand
Literally anything made before 2010. Zoomers refuse to watch old shit, they just slop up the latest Netflix original series or watch tiktok videos.
I get it, I understand what the humor was meant to be, I just didn't find it as funny as some people do. Steven Martin is a hit-or-miss for me anyway, sometime I think he just pushes the humor too far, it become too cringe or too exaggerated, to the point where it is not funny any more.
Against what? The anger of hoteps? Fuck naggers.
