His latest takes a funny spin on the pandemic and his celebrity, echoing the humor fans have seen on stage with fellow comedy legend Martin Short. In a tweet posted Saturday, Martin notes that he always dons the face-covering when leaving the house.
I always wear a mask when I go outside. But something about it was leaving me anxious and unsettled. I thought about the problem, addressed it, and here is the solution. pic.twitter.com/aUW4jHI3dX— Steve Martin (@SteveMartinToGo) September 12, 2020
Martin's selfie showed him in his mask and glasses, with the addition of a sign on his head that said, "I'm Steve Martin." It's simple, perfect and exactly the type of joke you'd expect from Martin.
"You know what I like about touring with Marty?" Martin asked during his stage show with Martin Short in 2017. "No paparazzi." This leads to Short playfully hitting back that Martin looks "like someone put a white toupee on a urinal."
Many famous names weighed in on the tweet and loved the idea. If you can't tell who someone is with their mask on, what good is celebrity? Scroll down to see some of the most enthusiastic responses to Martin.
I tried this trick, too! But no one believed I was Steve Martin. https://t.co/qwJYt0UDE4— George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) September 12, 2020
