Join us for Steve Martin and Martin Short: An Evening You Will Forget for the Rest of Your Life featuring The Steep Canyon Rangers and Jeff Babko.

As an actor, comedian, author, playwright, screenwriter, producer and musician, Steve Martin is one of the most diversified performers and acclaimed artists of his generation.

Martin has been successful as a writer of and performer in some of the most popular movies of recent film history—appearing in more than 50 films over the course of his career. With titles such as Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Parenthood and Father of the Bride, Martin’s films are the kind that are viewed again and again. Martin wrote the screenplays for some of his most celebrated films including The Jerk, Roxanne, Bowfinger, L.A. Story and Shopgirl.

Ever evolving his body of work Martin is also a Grammy Award winning musician who found his love for the banjo at the age of 17. Martin originally used his passion for the banjo as part of his standup comedy routine, but in 2010, he released his first album, The Crow: New Songs for the 5-Strong Banjo. He released his second full-length bluegrass album, Rare Bird Alert, in 2011. Additionally, Martin co-wrote two of the CD’s songs with the Grammy-winning bluegrass band, Steep Canyon Rangers. That year, Martin won the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Entertainer of the Year Award.

Martin Short, a celebrated comedian and actor, has won fans and accolades in television, film and theater since his breakout season on “Saturday Night Live” over 30 years ago.

Short won his first Emmy in 1982 while working on Canada’s SCTV Comedy Network, which brought him to the attention of the producers of “SNL.” 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 quickly into feature films. He made his debut in “Three Amigos” and followed with “Innerspace,” “Three Fugitives,” “Clifford,” “Pure Luck” and “Tim Burton’s Mars Attacks.” One of Short’s most memorable roles was in the remake of “Father of the Bride” as Franck the wedding planner, a role he reprised a few years later in “Father of the Bride Part II.” Short lent his voice to the animated film “Madagascar 3” and Tim Burton’s Oscar-nominated “Frankenweenie.”
