A wild and crazily talented guy

We all know Steve Martin's funny, and that he's an ace banjo player. But did you know he was also into magic? Here he is in his youth (brown hair!), when he was a writer for the Smothers Brothers.

And in later years as the Great Flydini.

On top of that, as Roy Blount Jr. so perfectly put it, he can dance like a son of a bitch. You've got to watch this duet with Gregory Hines to "Fit as a Fiddle and Ready for Love."
