Reunited: Steve Martin and Kermit the Frog in another round of “Dueling Banjos”

If you’re going to watch Steve Martin play the banjo, better to have him play “Dueling Banjos” with someone equally as compelling and fun. You know, like Kermit the Frog.

In this new Funny or Die exclusive, we see Steve and Kermit get their jam on. Who ya got?!

If memory serves you correctly, you had seen this before. A long time ago, in an entertainment world a generation away, Martin appeared on The Muppet Show, and played a bit of “Dueling Banjos” with the band for Kermit.

Roll the clip!

The new clip, as you’ll see if you play it ’til the end, also promotes a new book by photography Matt Hoyle that comes out in October. It’s called “Comic Genius: Portraits of Funny People.” And you can pre-order it already via
