Publisher Description

Grammy Award Nominee for Best Spoken Word Album!

Steve Martin's talent has always defied definition: an actor who's kept us riveted for over 25 years, a razor-sharp screenwriter, an acclaimed playwright. In this ingeniously funny collection of humorous riffs, those who thought Martin's gifts were confined to the screen will discover what readers of The New Yorker magazine already know: that Martin is a master of the written word.
Hilariously funny and intelligent in their skewering of the topic at hand, the audiobook's pieces, some of which first appeared in The New Yorker, feature Martin at his finest.
With a playwright's ear for dialogue, a sense of irony only Steve Martin could muster, and a first-class comic ability to perfectly time the punch line, Pure Drivel will have listeners crying with laughter, and marveling at the fact that in addition to all of his many talents, Steve Martin is also a superb writer.

Extremely Entertaining

I loved this! It's an older, wiser, different Steve Martin but he still confronts us with absurdity at every turn. Stands up to repeated listenings as well - a very entertaining listen for those who appreciate this flavor of humour. A highly-recommended buy.

Didn't do it for me

I love Steve Martin's movies and was hopeful that this audio book would be as much fun. Sorry, perhaps it's because there is no visual but Martin just isn't funny when he's reading his works.
