TORONTO — Canada’s Martin Short and his friend Steve Martin are teaming up this spring for two nights of live comedy and music.
The stars are scheduled to take over the stage of the Avalon Theatre at Fallsview Casino Resort in Niagara Falls, Ont. on April 16 and 17.
Their show, entitled A Very Stupid Conversation, will include stand-up, musical numbers, film clips and conversations about their show business experiences.
Short and Martin will be joined by the Steep Canyon Rangers, the bluegrass band with which Martin frequently performs.
The duo have staged the show several times, including last September in Alberta.
Short, who was born and raised in Hamilton, Ont., starred opposite Martin in 1986’s Three Amigos and 1991’s Father of the Bride and its 1995 sequel.
Martin also made a cameo in Short’s 2004 comedy Jiminy Glick in Lalawood.
Martin has guest-hosted Saturday Night Live 15 times since 1976 and has made numerous appearances on the show. Short was a cast member on SNL during the 1984-85 season.
Tickets for the Niagara Falls shows, starting at $75, go on sale Jan. 10 at 12 noon EST via Ticketmaster.
