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.

Martin is also an accomplished Grammy Award-winning, boundary-pushing bluegrass banjoist and composer.
Martin Short, a celebrated comedian and actor, has won fans and accolades in television, film and theater since his breakout season on “Saturday Night Live” almost 30 years ago. He became a fan-favorite for his portrayal of characters such as Ed Grimley, lawyer Nathan Thurm and “legendary songwriter” Irving Cohen.
His popularity and exposure on “Saturday Night Live” led Short to cross over quickly into feature films. He made his debut in “Three Amigos” followed by roles in “Inner Space,” “Three Fugitives,” “Pure Luck,” ”Father of the Bride,” “Clifford,” “Father of the Bride II,” Tim Burton’s “Mars Attacks,” “Madagascar 3,” and “Frankenweenie.” Short’s voice was also featured in the animated holiday film “Elliot: The Littlest Reindeer,” which was released in November 2018.
