Legendary comedian Steve Martin says Glen Campbell was the first person to employee him as a writer.
Martin was a writer for The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour. The show debuted in 1968 as the summer replacement for The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour.
Martin wrote for Glen Campbell but was also an accomplished banjo player. He made an early TV appearance playing banjo for the Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour.
“RIP, Glen. You were my first employer as a writer. We we all in awe of your musicality,” Steve Martin tweeted today.
