In the 1970s, his TV appearances led to the release of comedy albums that went platinum. The album featured a character based on a series of Saturday Night Live sketches where Martin and Dan Aykroyd played the Festrunk Brothers; Yortuk and Georgi (respectively) were bumbling Czechoslovak would-be playboys. Martin performed "King Tut" on the edition of April 22, 1978, of SNL. He was at once a hammy populist with an uncanny, unprecedented feel for the tastes of a mass audience and a sly intellectual whose goofy shtick cunningly deconstructed stand-up comedy.
His next album, A Wild and Crazy Guy (1978), was an even bigger success, reaching the No. The album ends with the song "King Tut", sung and written by Martin and backed by the "Toot Uncommons", members of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. On his comedy albums, Martin's stand-up is self-referential and sometimes self-mocking.
