Steve Martin and Martin Short bring “The Funniest Show in Town at the Moment” to Hard Rock Live at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood on Saturday, Jan. 25, at 8 p.m. Hard Rock Live, Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood’s new entertainment venue, is part of the $1.5 billion property expansion that will be completed Oct. 2019.
Martin and Short’s humor is often subversive, but it is always a joyous self-deprecating romp from two comedy masters driven to make each other laugh as much as the audience. The jokes come at you at a rapid-fire pace with little set-up and big punch lines as they mock Hollywood and the fickle nature of celebrity, but the comedy truly soars when they lovingly (and relentlessly) roast each other.
Martin and Short’s chemistry and timing on stage reflects a friendship of more than three decades. They met for the first time on the set of the 1986 film “Three Amigos.” They been touring together since 2016 when they launched their first live show titled “A Very Stupid Conversation.” The duo’s 2018 Netflix special, “An Evening You Will Forget for The Rest Of Your Life,” received four Emmy nominations.
