Steve Martin & Martin Short “Now You See Them, Soon You Won’t” featuring Della Mae with Alison Brown and Jeff Babko
In “Now You See Them, Soon You Won’t,” comedy legends Steve Martin and Martin Short will present new material in a variety of musical sketches and conversations about their iconic careers, most memorable encounters, and of course, their legendary lives in show business. The duo will be joined by American bluegrass band Della Mae and Alison Brown, as well as Jimmy Kimmel Live band member Jeff Babko.
Steve Martin is one of the most well-known talents in entertainment. His work has earned him an Academy Award®, five Grammy® awards, an Emmy®, the Mark Twain Award, and the Kennedy Center Honors. Martin began his career on “The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour” (1967-1969), for which he earned his first Emmy Award, and has since made himself a comedy icon through performances on “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson,” NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” and countless films. Martin is also an accomplished bluegrass banjoist, composer and author.
Martin Short has won fans and accolades in television, film and theater since his breakout season on “Saturday Night Live” over 30 years ago. He became an “SNL” fan favorite for his portrayal of characters such as Ed Grimley, lawyer Nathan Thurm and “legendary songwriter” Irving Cohen. His popularity and exposure on “SNL” led Short to cross over into feature films. Short’s New York Times bestselling memoir, “I Must Say: My Life as a Humble Comedy Legend,” was published in 2014.
