Steve Martin and Martin Short are further proof that comedy greats come in twos. The actors met while filming 1986’s cult classic Three Amigos, followed by Father of the Bride and its sequel. For the last several years, the two have turned their friendship of more than 30 years into a live tour that mixes comedy bits, characters, childhood pictures, stories about their families and careers, musical interludes and a lot of friendly insults. “Steve and I are like Donny and Marie, but without the sexual tension,” Short joked in their 2018 Emmy-nominated special, Steve Martin and Martin Short: An Evening You Will Forget for the Rest of Your Life. For Steve Martin and Martin Short: Now You See Them, Soon You Won’t, Martin will again be accompanied by pianist Jeff Babko and Martin backed by his bluegrass band the Steep Canyon Rangers. We’re hoping Short once more resurrects his TV alter ego Jiminy Glick. We need the obnoxious fictional TV interviewer to tear Hollywood and our current administration new ones now more than ever.
