Available as a podcast for free
Not sure if the audio is that much greater on this one, but you can now get this from the 92Y's comedian podcast for free. They also have a decent one from the late great George Carlin. Also, not sure how they price these things - $8.95 for a little over an hour (of just audio, right?), when TV videos are just $1.99!!! Kind of a rip-off. In any case, this was a good interview - funny, moving, the whole nine yards.
Heartfelt and Insightful
This is a fantastic interview with Steve Martin chronicling his early years as a comedian. Insightful and heartfelt I really enjoyed hearing his thoughts and experiences and I highly recommend it!
