Paparazzi. Robbers. Devil's spawn.
Just another day in Pleasanton.
Comedian Steve Martin's visit to the usually-idyllic East Bay city had a flavor of the wild, according to the comedian's Twitter account.
"Errant killer robot just lasered innocent cornfield," Martin tweeted Wednesday. "Turns out I was in "evil" Pleasanton. There is also good Pleasanton, where "evil" Pleasanton goes to shop for gifts and things."
Martin was in town -- actually, in Livermore -- to play a show. And "we got 3,000 standing ovations!" Martin tweeted. "One at a time, as audience left mid-show."
The "crime capital of the United States" is not in fact Pleasanton, whose welcoming arch Martin also included in his Twitter feed. Pleasanton is in fact quite, well, pleasant -- Martin's in the joke business, people.
