Steve Martin, the beloved actor and comedian, has made a shocking announcement – he will be retiring from the entertainment industry. As we bid farewell to this comedic genius, let’s take a look back at his remarkable career and the impact he has made on the world of comedy.

While many people choose to retire in their 60s, Martin’s career and popularity only continued to grow as he got older.

Currently starring in the Hulu show “Only Murders in the Building,” alongside longtime friend Martin Short and the talented Selena Gomez, Martin has created memorable characters that have captivated audiences. When asked about character development, Martin humorously replied, “Once you get to 75, there’s not a lot left to learn, there’s only more mistakes. So I don’t worry about those things. [It’s about] being true to the character.”
