Steve Martin in 'The Absent-Minded Waiter'

Funny Site of the Day -- In 1977, during the phenomenal popularity of the stand-up comedy by Steve Martin, the performer took time from his gushing stardom to write and headline in this 7-minute short subject about a totally mental food server. The project received little distribution from Paramount Pictures, but it eventually became Steve's secret weapon concert warm-up, shown before he took the stage.

Prominent actors Buck Henry and Teri Garr add comic heft as the bumbler's diners.

I know you "are expecting a professional waiter. So, here we go...."
