As you probably know, Steve Martin was a magician working at the Disneyland magic shop long before he became a comedian.
In his early comedy career, he blended both art forms to make his unique comedy magic act.
Here is an early performance on the Smothers Brothers Show, where he was one of the comedy writers.
By the way, Harry Blackstone Jr. was one of the associate producers of that TV show!
And below is Steve Martin's famous "Great Flydini" comedy magic act, performed on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson in 1992.
