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.

Very funny, but not complete.
The pieces that are in this audiobook are hilarious! "Side effects" is my favorite. Unfortunately, the recording just stops at the end of one of the short pieces. At first I thought it was just the end but after reading the original write-up, I found that this was an abridged version because some of the pieces listed weren't recorded. Still, the stuff that is in it is great stuff! Martin is a master of comedy.
Some of the funniest things you will ever hear. Pure Genius.
Best actor ever
