Before some of the most famous comedians hit it big, they were just like everyone else - smiling awkwardly at the camera, counting the days until high school was over.

But that doesn't mean seeing them in their younger days isn't a treat. Fine, we give. We just wanted an excuse to use a picture of Steve Martin ironing a cat.
