steve martin comedy is not pretty album and gatefoldgoing on five years now the Academy has recognized a small group of important people who are doing the right thing

and have been super excellent over their careers.

tonight angelina jolie, piero tosi, angela lansbury and steve martin will be honored.

i will be live blogging it on so tune in, wont you? it starts at 7pmish.

one thing i wont be doing is gushing, because, you know, thats not profesh.

but since we’re all friends here, let me tell you how happy i am that steve martin is being recognized

when i was in high school Comedy is Not Pretty was one of the first records i ever bought

mine was probably the last generation who actually bought comedy records and brought them over to their friends house, or took them to parties.

i loved it so much i had the poster that came with the record and hung it on my wall.

how many white guys in pink suits and gray hair were on posters on the wall of black kids?

probs only steve martin.

he’s had an amazing career, if you havent yet read his memoir, born standing up, it’s pretty fascinating, and of course funny.

this is why i had to get a tux the other day.

many famous people will be there.

dont worry, i’ll take pics.
