If any 92nd Street Y audience members were dissatisfied with Steve Martin's fine-arts-based discussion with Deborah Solomon in 2010 (for which guests received a refund), they need merely turn to this 2007 interview with Charlie Rose. In Martin's discussion about his early career, his lifetime in comedy, and Born Standing Up, his memoir that says it all, the comedian delivers the laughs. His stories are hilarious and heartfelt, and he has a fraternal rapport with Rose, the great public television personality who considers Martin a friend. The world of fine art might not be brought up once in this discussion, but the high comedic arts are on abundant display.
