King Tut’s Famous Stand (Up)

What do you get when a 33-year-old man steps on a stage in front of a large crowd of people in a three-piece white suit?

And no, this person isn’t Colonel Sanders.

Stand-up comedy is not traditionally a profession known for its formality, except for hosts of late-night television. Slightly surprising, there’s no singular formula for succeeding in stand-up comedy. Despite the limited space to perform, react (a critically important quality) and be creative, the best comedians figure out ways to distinguish themselves and rise above what we’ve heard and seen before. These gifted individuals show audiences unique bits, share insightful perspectives and connect on levels far deeper than laughter.

Steve Martin is one of these comedic geniuses.

That’s the rarely seen Double Throwback Thursday, starring Steve Martin in 1978 and Egyptian pharaoh King Tut.

They’re just two wild and crazy guys.
