Steve Martin is now giving an online class to teach you how to be funny

Rory Cashin

After his career in stand-up comedy but before he was appearing in Cheaper By The Dozen 2, Steve Martin was considered one of the funniest people on Earth.

The Jerk. Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid. The Man With Two Brains. Three Amigos. The Little Shop Of Horrors. Roxanne. Planes, Trains & Automobiles. Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. L.A. Story. Father Of The Bride. HouseSitter. Bowfinger. That episode of 30 Rock when he played a reclusive millionaire.

His CV speaks for itself, and while Martin has retired from the world of stand-up comedy, he has decided to pass on his knowledge to the next generation.

According to Variety, for a fee of $90 students will receiver 25 instructional videos, a class workbook complete with lesson reviews and additional materials, and if you’re good enough, individual feedback from Martin himself.

If being thought by him is in a fraction as this video implies, then consider us signed up!
