Steve Martin and Martin Short to perform together in Montreal
Steve Martin and Martin Short – Two comedy legends who started in stand-up comedy nearly 50 years ago and made their mark on television, movies, the stage and even the printed page, will perform together in a once-in-a-lifetime live onstage comedy event.
Steve Martin and Martin Short will bring their “An Evening You Will Never Forget For The Rest Of Your Life” tour to Salle Wilfrid Pelletier of Place des Arts on October 21. Presented by Just For Laughs and evenko, this unique show will have both Martin and Short recall their respective careers in show business (which included appearances on “Saturday Night Live”, “SCTV”, movies such as “Three Amigos” and “Father of the Bride”, and stints on Broadway as writer and performer), as well as some of their memorable moments and career influences, by performing select standup comedy routines, musical numbers and conversations. Also joining this comedy dynamic duo are the bluegrass band The Steep Canyon Rangers – who collaborated with Martin on a Grammy Award-winning bluegrass music album – and jazz pianist Jeff Babko, who can be seen regularly as a member of the house band on “Jimmy Kimmel Live”.
