LOS ANGELES, Mar 4:  Comedy legend Steve Martin will be offering tips, tricks and insights from his 50-year showbiz career in his first-ever online class, set to launch this spring.
The class, which will cost USD 90, will be available through internet-education startup MasterClass. Enrollees will have access to more than 25 video lessons led by Martin, covering topics like finding your comedic voice and nailing an act, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
