Although Steve Martin no longer performs, his career has been lengthy and diverse.

The renowned actor Steve Martin recently revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that he plans to scale back on his performances following the ending of the hugely popular Hulu series “Only Murders in the Building,” however he stopped short of proclaiming his retirement.

Martin declared that after the TV show ended, he wouldn’t actively look for new employment. He had no interest in pursuing other acting opportunities. Unexpectedly, this marks his journey’s end.

Regardless of his choice, Martin has had a remarkable career spanning six decades as a diversified artist, and he is just one Tony Award away from becoming a member of the exclusive EGOT club, which honors individuals who have won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony.

Let’s take a look at some of Martin’s many talents and accomplishments in the entertainment sector to give you some perspective on his illustrious career, should he choose to quit it.

In the 1960s, Martin began his career in comedy as a writer for “The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour,” for which he was nominated for an Emmy in 1969. He hosted “Saturday Night Live” for much of the 1970s, and he has since done so fifteen times.

His popularity grew as he went on sold-out tours and performed his distinctive stand-up routines, which frequently featured music and props.

By the 1980s, Martin had changed his direction and was concentrating on acting, quitting stand-up comedy. He received the Mark Twain Prize in 2005 in recognition of his contributions to American humor.

As Jerry Seinfeld’s opening act in 2016, Martin made a comeback on stage. The same year, he and Martin Short, his co-star from “Only Murders in the Building,” went on a cross-country tour.

The Netflix special “An Evening You Will Forget for the Rest of Your Life,” which was published in 2018, was also produced as a result of this collaboration.

Martin’s contributions to the industry have not gone unnoticed, despite the fact that he has never been nominated for an Oscar. He received praise for his outstanding work in 2013.

Martin’s co-writing and scoring of “Bright Star,” a Broadway musical set in the 1940s in the magnificent North Carolina Blue Ridge Mountains, served as another example of his skill as a dramatist and musician. He was nominated for five Tony Awards in 2016 for the play.
