Steve Martin & Martin Short announce summer tour
Comedy greats and old friends Steve Martin and Martin Short are reteaming for a new variety tour titled "The Funniest Show in Town at the Moment" which will have them out in July, August and September. "Marty and I love touring, especially while we can still tolerate each other," said Steve, while Marty added, "There are few people that I truly admire, and Steve Martin is very close to being one of them."
Select dates will feature special guests, including bluegrass band The Steep Canyon Rangers (who Steve plays with frequently); jazz pianist and Jimmy Kimmel Live band member Jeff Babko; former Dave Letterman bandleader Paul Shaffer; singer-songwriter Alison Brown, and bluegrass band Della Mae.
The tour includes stops in Irvine, Columbus, the DC-area, Chicago, Raleigh, Atlanta and more. There's an NYC-are show at Jones Beach on July 31 and tickets for that show (and the whole tour) go on sale Friday, February 21 at 10 AM local with presales starting Wednesday (2/19) at 10 AM.
