WILKES-BARRE, Pa. (AP) – Steve Martin’s known as a wild and crazy guy, but he’s also a lucky one: A stranger found his wallet on a Wilkes-Barre street and returned it to the famous entertainer.
Will Beekman, programming director at the Kirby Center where Martin was performing Tuesday night, said he didn’t get the name of the man who found the wallet while working on a city street earlier in the day.
Martin apparently lost it while bicycling.
Beekman says the man knew Martin’s bluegrass show was in town, so he contacted the concert hall to say he’d found the wallet.
Beekman says Martin insisted on thanking the man in person, but he wasn’t sure if the man got a reward.
The wallet had Martin’s driver’s license and credit cards but no cash.
