Steve Martin Tonight Show 1973 Comedy for Dogs

While appearing on The Tonight Show in 1973, a young, brown-haired Steve Martin hilariously performed stand-up comedy for dogs. As Martin told his jokes, his canine audience slowly began to politely thin out.

One dog, however, remained for the whole routine and appeared to be so amused that he almost peed the stage (or perhaps he was just waving to Martin with his back foot).

Afterward, Martin performed some rather absurdist card tricks for host Johnny Carson.
