However, he didn’t become the star he is overnight. His outstanding comic talent was first acknowledged by Mason Williams, the head writer of The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour.

Thanks to that gig, he and the rest of the writers of the show got an Emmy Award. His influence in the comedy world kept growing and one of the first movies that catapulted his career was The Jerk, released in 1979.

According to Rare, Martin’s character, Navin R. Johnson, was a white man who was raised by a black family and didn’t realize he was not black. Apart from acting, he also helped write the film.

The movie was filled with gags and funny scenes that, along with Martin’s acting and personality, resulted in a hilarious 105-minute film that became an instant classic of the entertainment industry.

Not only is Martin an important member of the film industry but also he is a talented musician who has released many albums. The first one is titled Let’s Get Small (1977) and reach number 10 on Billboard’s Pop Albums charts.

Martin’s most recent album was released in 2017 and it is titled The Long-Awaited Album. He collaborated with Steep Canyon Rangers and reached number 189 on Billboard’s Pop Albums charts.

At the moment, Martin is 72 years old and is still active – especially in the music industry. Fans cannot wait to see him again on the big screen. All that is left to do is wait for him to take the decision to do it.
