For decades now, Steve Martin has been making us laugh – whether it’s in comedy classics like The Jerk, The Man With Two Brains, and Three Amigos; heartfelt favourites like Father Of The Bride; or in his more recent ongoing role as actor-slash-true-crime-podcaster Charles-Haden Savage in Only Murders In The Building. His career has spanned so many years and so many styles of comedy – and now, fans can take a trawl through his legendary life in a brand new documentary. Or, more accurately, two documentaries. Get ready for the highly-punctuated STEVE! (martin) a documentary in 2 pieces (as it’s officially stylised), a… well, two-part documentary about Steve Martin. Watch the trailer here:

The film(s) come from acclaimed documentarian Morgan Neville, previously behind the Oscar-winning 20 Feet From Stardom, and Mister Rogers doc Won’t You Be My Neighbour? Each part will present different looks at Martin’s life – the first is ‘Then’, looking at his early rise to fame, and his career up to the age of 35; the second is ‘Now’, all about how Martin’s is currently living. The trailer promises inclusions from fellow comedy icons like Tina Fey, Jerry Seinfeld, and Martin Short, with the promise of ‘other famous people’ to come. Oh – and yes, he does try the Three Amigos costume on.

It looks like not only a warm revisiting of Martin’s life and career, but also a document of how he found peace and contentment later in life after being plagued by anxiety in his first few decades. Block out a weekend and prepare to stream both parts of STEVE! (martin) a documentary in 2 pieces when it comes to Apple TV+ on 29 March.
