A Wild and Crazy Guy (1978) is an album by American comedian Steve Martin. It reached number two on a Billboard's Pop Albums Chart. The album was eventually certified double platinum.

The album was released just as his celebrity status grew and the format reflects this. The first half of the album was performed in front of a small audience at The Boarding House in San Francisco, California, where his previous album had been recorded. The second half of the album was performed at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre. The switchover between venues is handled in a clever segue in the opening minute of the track "A Wild and Crazy Guy" which opened Side Two of the original vinyl long-player – Steve reads a bogus financial disclosure report to the audience at The Boarding House nightclub, and when he gets to calculating concert revenues he reveals his desire to make over $2 million on a single show; the audience reaction quickly segues from the enclosed intimacy of The Boarding House to the far more raucous open amphitheatre of Red Rocks near Denver.
