Happy birthday to Emmy and Grammy Award-winning comedian and actor Steve Martin — the legendary funnyman is turning 75 years old today. Throughout the 1970s, Martin released several blockbuster comedy albums and made frequent appearances on “Saturday Night Live” before transitioning to the big screen and starring in classic films like “The Jerk” and “Father of the Bride”. An avid banjo enthusiast, Martin pursued this interest later in his career and toured with various bluegrass acts, eventually releasing his first solo music album “The Crow” and winning the Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album at the 52nd Grammy Awards in 2010.
