  1. Does anyone know where I can find Steve Martin’s favorite foods? I just opened SlapStix Comedy Club in Waco Texas, Steve’s Birth Place. We are serving food and looking to have Signature Sandwiches named after comedians and of course we will have a “Steve Martin’s Croque Madame” we are trying to decide what kind of meat he like most to make up this signature sandwich.
