Steve Martin has been a household favorite ever since I found out he wrote L.A. Story.

The man has a strong inner geek (a humanities geek, no less).

He reads for the audiobook, so you get the masterful storytelling of an interesting early life (it doesn't go through present day and limits itself to his stand-up career).

I especially recommend this to those who enjoyed Stephen King's excellent On Writing.
