Arguably two of the funniest men alive will be performing in Edmonton. Steve Martin and Martin Short will put on a show at the Jubilee in August.

The duo will bring their comedic skills to the Northern Jubilee Auditorium on Friday, Aug. 3.

Their show, An Evening You Will Forget For the Rest Of Your Life, will also take the stage in Calgary’s Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium on Aug. 4.

Just For Laughs said Martin and Short will “recall their iconic careers, creative influences and most memorable encounters, uniquely presented through a blend of stand-up, musical numbers and conversations about their lives in show business.”

Award-winning bluegrass band The Steep Canyon Rangers and jazz pianist Jeff Babko will also be part of the show.

Tickets start at $85.50 and go on sale Monday, Feb. 26 at 10 a.m.

Fans were thrilled when the news of Martin and Short went public.
