Three of Steve Martin's best moments on YouTube

Funnyman Steve Martin is set be honoured with yet another accolade in his long and distinguished career.

The accomplished 69-year-old actor, comedian and musician will be presented with the 2014 lifetime achievement award by the American Film Institute in June 2015.

Martin's gong sees him join the likes of Alfred Hitchcock, Elizabeth Taylor, Meryl Streep and Jane Fonda in being honoured by the AFI, whose goal is to preserve motion picture history through film programmes, festivals and awards.

Chairman of the AFI's board of ​trus​tees Howard Stringer said: "Steve Martin is an American original.

"He is a multi-layered creative force bound by neither convention nor caution. His work is defined by him alone, for he is the author – and a national treasure whose work has stuck with us like an arrow in the head." - Howard Stringer, chairman of the AFI's board of ​trus​tees 

Aside from his AFI award, Martin has an Emmy and five Grammy awards to his name.

In 2013, he received an honorary Oscar for his achievements. He has also hosted the show three times.

Here are three of Martin's most-watched videos on the Internet, thanks to the wonders of YouTube. Enjoy!
