But don’t be fooled by Martin’s 6-foot-2-inch outward appearance, which includes his signature cowboy hat, boots and Texas drawl, as his on-stage persona is not act – his middle-America storytelling is as genuine as it gets.
Drawing from real life experiences, Martin’s vibrant routine reflects life as a husband, father and friend. And that authenticity is connecting with mainstream America, crossing culture lines and social status boundaries.
But no matter the topic, Martin’s gentlemanly wit and charm shine brightly like his wide Texas smile. His humor is sharp, original and occasionally laced with sarcasm and innuendo, but without the overt adult language prevalent with so many in today’s comedy landscape.
And you can now see Martin's wonderful stand-up on display with his near-simultaneous release of two stand-up comedy specials: “Standing in the Middle,” and his holiday-centric performance, “The Nutcracker.”
When Martin’s not touring theaters and clubs, he can be found hosting his weekly Podcast for Broadcast, called “A Stand Up Dad”
He and his wife also operate “Cowboys Who Care,” a non-profit organization that provides smiles, support and free cowboy hats to kids with cancer or life-threatening illnesses.
