Steve Martin Spotted in Pleasanton

Did you get any photos of the famous comedian? If so, post them with this story.

Comedian/actor/banjo player Steve Martin was sighted at an outdoor table at the , a well known Mexican restaurant in Pleasanton.

Martin was sitting alone tapping at his laptop and declined to comment when a Patch editor approached him. He is due to appear at the Wente Winery in Livermore.

One thing Martin was doing was tapping out absurdist Tweets lampooning the low level of crime in :

Errant killer robot just lasered innocent cornfield. ‪#Pleasanton‬

Just about to turn noon in Pleasanton and so far, two armed robberies, one garbage truck mishap, and two births of devil’s spawn.

The paparazzi in Pleasanton is driving me crazy. There are NONE here.

Pleasanton Patch's editor saw the tweets earlier and walked up and down Main Street until she found him.‬

Did you run into Martin around town? Tell us in the comments section below.

He's pretty private. I wouldn't have approached him.

He was very sweet. I did not want to bother him too much.

If he didn't want to be found, he wouldn't have been posting where he was! Bold and clever Ms. Johnson! I'm certain he enjoyed meeting you. :)

He was teasing about "no paparazzi in Pleasanton" so it was funny to stop by and say hello to him.

Once again...the talent comes to Livermore to work...but spends their time (and money) in Pleasanton. We havevlots of great places where he could have eaten....and he probably stayed at The Rose Hotel in Pleasanton too!

I worked the Steve Martin concert at Wente last night. I worked security at the steps leading to the 'Green Room', where Steve Martin and his band stayed before the concert. I was able to speak with Mr. Martin a few times. He was extremely friendly and down to earth.
