Stand-up Chess: Steve Martin
As a big fan of Steve Martin from King Tut to guest spots on SNL , Cruel Shoes to Shop Girl, The Jerk to Cheaper by the Dozen (2) ..... I was hoping to provide a long list of his contributions to chess humour.
Well ......Excuuuuuuuuuuuuse meeeeee!
I could only find these two pieces;
1. Computer Chess:
"Playing computer chess with myself, but finding it hard to climb on desk, straddle monitor and look down."

2. 1990 World Chess Championship
While attending the opening Kasparov - Karpov match at the Hudson theatre in New York (with "My Blue Heaven" co-star Rick Moranis), Steve told reporters that he came for the excitement and "to see the fights in the audience". (Oct 8, 1990)
(the game, a King's Indian Defense: Saemisch Variation, Byrne Defense ... was a draw after 30 moves)
gotta go .....the new phone book is here!
