Although Steve Martin is no longer performing, he has had a long and varied career.

Following the conclusion of the highly successful Hulu series “Only Murders in the Building,” acclaimed actor Steve Martin recently announced to The Hollywood Reporter that he intends to dial back on his performances, though he stopped short of declaring his retirement.

Martin stated that he would not actively seek new opportunities once the television show concluded. He indicated his indifference to pursuing more film roles. Surprisingly, this is the conclusion of his journey.

Regardless of his decision, Martin, a diverse artist, has had a spectacular career spanning six decades, and he is only one Tony Award away from joining the elite EGOT club, which celebrates people who have won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony.

Let’s look at some of Martin’s varied abilities and achievements in the entertainment industry, providing insight into his distinguished career if he decides to leave it.

Martin’s career in comedy began in the 1960s as a writer for “The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour,” for which he received an Emmy nomination in 1969. Throughout the 1970s, he hosted “Saturday Night Live,” a chance he has taken advantage of fifteen times.

His star continued to rise as he embarked on sold-out tours presenting his unique stand-up acts, which frequently included music and props.

By the 1980s, Martin had altered gears and focused on acting, saying goodbye to stand-up comedy. In 2005, he was awarded the Mark Twain Prize for his contributions to American humor.

Martin returned to the stage in 2016 as Jerry Seinfeld’s opening act. The same year, he embarked on a cross-country tour with his co-star from “Only Murders in the Building,” Martin Short.

This collaboration also resulted in the creation of the Netflix special “An Evening You Will Forget for the Rest of Your Life,” which was released in 2018.

Martin has appeared in several films throughout his career, including the iconic “Father of the Bride” and “Cheaper by the Dozen” franchises. Among his other significant films are “Three Amigos” (1986), “Planes, Trains, and Automobiles” (1987), “Bowfinger” (1999), and “Three Amigos.”

Martin’s industry services have not gone unappreciated, although he has never received an Oscar nomination. He was recognized for his remarkable efforts in 2013.

Martin also demonstrated his talent as a playwright and composer when he co-wrote and scored “Bright Star,” a Broadway musical set in the 1940s in the picturesque North Carolina Blue Ridge Mountains. In 2016, he received five Tony Award nominations for the play.

Martin has taken up a new venture as the co-creator and actor of “Only Murders in the Building,” in which he has played an amateur podcaster since 2021. Martin has been nominated for three Emmy Awards for his captivating performance, adding to the show’s seven nominations.

Born in Texas and raised in California, Martin developed his love of the banjo at a young age and used it regularly in his stand-up shows during the 1970s. His performance of Earl Scruggs’ “Foggy Mountain Breakdown” garnered him a Grammy Award in 2002.

Martin continued his musical endeavors by releasing his first music-only CD titled “The Crow: New Songs for the 5-String Banjo” in 2009, which earned him a Grammy for Best Bluegrass CD in 2010.
